Most of the pictures here are fantastic, Timdentent's bubble picture is just extraordinary to me. I'm still learning as a new photography student and seeing all this just inspires me even more.

Here are a couple of shots of one of my resident squirrels. Due to illness I don't get out as much as I would like. The squirrels give me a chance to play without having to leave the house.
This was shot with my DAL 55-300 through a dirty glass door (I really must clean it before the snow flies). The only post processing was adding a watermark and resizing. In spite of having a lot of inside time, I don't really understand what I am doing in PaintShop (yet).

K-r is my first DSLR. I forked out for an upgrade to the kit lens (Sigma 17-70mm) and went into my back garden to try it out. I found some seed heads from some plant or other so I went in close and was rather gratified with the result:

China Nightscene

I have posted it elsewhere, but maybe I will get opinions that are more tender here in this thread! I took this about 10 hours after I bought my K-r. My first ever shot at iso3200 too, as all my previous cameras have been vile even at only iso 800. Maybe the main thing that identifies me as a newbie, even after 50 years of photography, was that I didn't think of Law of Thirds, Golden Mean, the intention of the final outcome, the ethics of composition, whatever. I just thought "" Oooh, pritty cullers!" and CLICK!


(1/40 f5.6 iso 3200 18-55 kit lens)

This was taken in a place that was once called a village, but is now basically an outlying suburb of Chengdu. It is a place called Shi Ling, created when the Chinese government decided to relocate 5 different mountain villages (each containing maybe 10,000 people!) to create a new "village" near Chengdu, which in itself is referred to here as a small city. (Of 9 million people!)

7-11s are for slackers, as some shops never seem to be truly closed, and many shops are the width of a western store front, but with a depth of only 1 or 2 metres, so they are basically giant cupboards, with just enough dept for the owner to sit on a kitchen chair out of the rain. Another Chinese habit is to have many shops selling identical things lined up next to each other - very convenient for the customer, but reducing takings I expect. Still, there are so many people here that if you lose one customer there are always another 100 behind him.


This portrait was taken with a Pentax-M 50 mm f1.4, and I am pleased with the results with no flash




Earlier today I went for a stroll along the river bank:



In fact, they are making more effort than some restaurants, who cut their vegetables on the sidewalks, and I mean literally on the floor!

Took this one while playing with my tripod and long exposure times:


Exposição por lppires, no Flickr

I've got to go to a waterfall and take a few pictures like broah, great picture by the way, even more impressive that you took it without a tripod.


Luz por lppires, no Flickr

This one was in a local square. Should used some NR though, I've got to try more of the digikam NR options.

Well, this is a fun thread

The K-r is my first DSLR-just got it a couple months ago. I have no idea what I'm doing, but I'm having a great time. These were taken with an FA 100-300mm f/4.7-5.8 film era lens.
Bee in Eucalyptus, Peacock, Peahen, Cougar, Tasty Cougar Meal. No, that's Bambi.
