Lovin' my 100mm WR more after each use!
Lens: 100mm WR Pentax Camera: k20d Photo Location: Boxford Ma. ISO: 800 
Posted By: charliezap, 07-04-2011, 08:22 AM

Yesterday I took my gear to a "Barbie" and between libations I had the opportunity take some shots with the cooperation of the local insects.
Considering all shots were hand held and the dof really varied (plus the wine factor) I was pleased with the results.Have a happy and safe 4th of July and by the way the "Hot Dog eating contest" is on at noon today from Nathan's hot dog stand Coney Island N.Y. on ESPN.---charliezap - oops the last shot of the flowers was taken with the Pentax 18-250mm lens.My work horse lens.

Well done Charlie, did you give those bugs a mini pint for cooperation?

Thanks to all for the positive feedback.One thing that I should discipline myself with that lens is not getting as close to the subject as possible(9") which really cuts down on the dof .I can get really pleasing results from a couple of feet with more dof with the quality of the lens standing out even with a tight cropping.--charliezap
