Lens: Pentax DA 18-55 AL II Camera: K20D Photo Location: Kungshamn, Sweden ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/90s Aperture: F8

I am thinking about getting the DA21 as a small landscape lens to keep in the pocket at all times. Sticking the 18-55 at 21mm to get a feel for the FL. But still, the 18-55 is pretty good when stopped down, small enough to bring most of the time and a bit more flexible than the 21. Still not decided.

Anyway, this is one that I liked how it turned out. Could have been a nice HDR candidate if I had brought a tripod.

Well done. Even if the triangular building at the horizon might seem as distraction, i like how it pulls your attention at that point.

Not a bad result from the kit lens Johan.
Good sharpness and texture detail in the tough lighting conditions.

Thanks for looking, guys. The kit lens is very good value, if you learn to work within its limits.
