This had been on the front page for at least two days, Jimbo. No matter, thanks for your compliment as always.

Sometimes there are hundreds of hits and no comment. People enjoy the shots even if they do not take the time to leave their mark, often because they have nothing much to say.

Me, I like it as always! Your technique is perfect and eye very good.

If the photo was shot this week or last, consider adding it to the Picture of the Week thread before the end of today (Sunday).

Your right of course, Robin.

If I post it in POTW is there any chance at winning a Pentax 15mm lens?!
I'm desperate for one, with this project.

I wish!

If you keep your eyes open the DA12-24mm goes a lot cheaper than list sometimes, especially the Samsung version. Or do you really need the DA15 for size?

I have the 21mm and 35mm and i'm after the 15mm too, for the size, as you also mention. These Pentax primes are such wonderful lenses.

Hey Paul, this one must of slipped me by as I have been trying to comment on most of this series. This image is a fine example in the series and I like your careful composition, and as usual the black and white conversion is spot on.

...And I can't help but recommend the DA15 too, great lens and I reckon it would be perfect for somewhere like London.

Thanks jezeks, cheers, goddo.

I have about ten images in this series so far, and they've all been taken with the 21mm. Even though I mentioned I was desperate for the 15mm for use with this project, the 21mm has stood me in good stead, very good stead indeed.

There is a lot to be said about the 21mm, too. It has a very good perspective that is not over the top and gives a field of view roughly approximate to our eyes. I know they say a 50mm does that, but I disagree, I think a 35mm better suits our eyes.

So, I have the 21mm, 35mm and the 'A' 50mm, and I feel that the 15mm will crown this little lens line-up nicely.

Regards.
