K5 in Rain
Lens: 50-135 ISO: 50

Well, K5 in rain.
To get the bottom picture, i was lying on a puddle of water. My K5 is beyond drenched. Remember that video of the K5 running under a shower? Yeap - that was me. I wonder if its going to break on me now >_<.

Whats worse is what i found out about these weather shots. For example, the K5 is rated -10C...but i found out early on that *I* can't stand -10 . Or my models, for that matter.

Similarly, taking shots in the rain sounds like a great idea. Until everyone is freezing cold, lol, goosebumps, shivering and can't even focus! Ahaha....The rain water makes even manual focusing difficult, as it basically acts as multiple additional film between my eyes and the camera.

Then I am messing up my settings like a noob, while worrying about my camera....too many things to go . At least now i know what i am up against if I go out there again

Very intimate.
Also I really think no.2 is a cut above the rest.

Great framing and composition!
