Where are you guys? Don't you love your K5IIs cameras...or are you intimidated by the K3? You have no reason to be intimidated, the K5 line is equally impressive unless you are printing billboards!

Otis claims you are all waiting for a shot of his handsome face....here is one done in DXO Film Pak3 . He likes it...maybe you will too? If you don't, don't say anything negative about Otis, he is very vindictive. Many that used to be here and have flamed Otis are no longer here......their computers have suffered the dreaded blue screen failure.

It's OK to criticize the shot, the shooter, or the processing....but not Otis!

Otis....damn handsome squirrel!


Regards!

All wonderful FS...as usual, but the car/clouds one got my vote! Love it! Fantastic coloration!

Can you hand hold a big ol' Bigma and get a shot of a dove in the rain at 1/50? Only if you get lucky!

Thanks FS! It was a lucky shot at such a slow speed. I'll have to check out that Topaz Restyle, that was a neat shot you posted!

I'm getting a nice collection of Blue Jays here. This is the first year they have take up residence here and I keep trying to get the "perfect shot" of one. Haven't got it yet, but I will keep trying...they are not easy to shoot, very jittery and fast moving birdies.


The doves are much easier, they will pose often.


Of course, nothing is easier than a squirrel that wants to show you his big butt!

Couldn't get closer....loved the pose! Had to shoot ISO 3200 to get a shot.


Had to go to ISO 6400 for this on on a dark and rainy day.


6400 on this one too....squirrels just look handsome at any ISO!

Fantastic shot! Usually if I see a scene like that, I am without my camera or am too slow to catch it. They don't last long. That is a most unusual cloud formation...I've seen thousands, but never one like that! Wonderful!

So many great K-5 iis images. I could spend all day looking at them.

Here are a few of my 4 year old Granddaughter from Easter Morning.

Me too! Most of my shots posted here are shot through my home office windows!

Lovely shots of a lovely young lady! That last one is classic!

Just a few today as I came in from my shop to cool off a little from the hot humid air outside.

Otis was having a hard time with the humidity too...


He finally got up in a tree to get some breeze...but there wasn't any.


Didn't seem to bother this little male Cardinal? Had to be some luck here at 1/60 handheld with the Bigma!


That all for today...maybe tomorrow I'll get something more interesting?

Regards!

Thanks FS! He had been drinking beer all afternoon, maybe it was to better "dry out"?

I have a lot of new young squirrels around here in the Woods of Otis...and not surprisingly, they all look a lot like Otis! After all Otis is a "Party Animal"!

Looks a lot like Otis!


Regards!
