Beautiful images and colors! Love them both, but I really like #2 with all the reflective colors in the water.

Thank you BlueBubbleBoy.
#2 is my own favorite too.

That combined with your landcapes would be a killer combo.
Thanks!

Splendid work, particularly the first image. I guess you were shooting in different directions and that is what accounts for the difference in lightness between the two images.

I see you are now using the K7. How do you like it? I am saving my pennies because I really want 100% of what I see in the viewfinder to appear the same as in the finished image. And that is what the K7 has! Not many cameras have this feature.

Thanks JMR.
Yes I shot these in somewhat different directions and light was also changing fast as the sun was just setting behind the trees.

K-7 has been really nice so far. Excellent upgrade from K10D. 100% viewfinder is really useful.
Only thing I'm a bit frustrated about is that my Sigma 10-20mm is now softer because of the K-7 better sensor (shows Sigma's flaws more clearly).
Maybe I have to update my wide-angle to Pentax.

Someday, Joni, you've got to reveal how you control nature's light! Terrific job, as always.

I don't know if there is anything bigger to reveal.
I just try to shoot at the best time of the day.
Thanks Jer!
