A Couple MF Shots
Lens: SMC-K 135 f/2.5 Camera: K20D Photo Location: Topsail Island, NC ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/500s Aperture: F8

Wanted to practice some manual focus and get a better feel for the 135/2.5. I love the colors it gives and the long throw of the focusing ring. I didn't record the f-stops used, but I think it may have been around f/8 or perhaps even lower to get a fairly quick shutter speed since the shots were hand-held. May need to get a split screen to replace the kit focusing screen for quicker focusing.

Great work with the focus...and with the composition! The first shot is my favorite- love the pose and the shadow!
