I do feel a little bit neglectful when I don't get on the forum on a regular basis and keep up with my fellow Pentaxians postings.It does get addictive and a few days away from it kind of recharges the batteries so to speak.This pic was taken last Sunday at the campsite after a few cocktails around the campsite with the K5 and Picasa did a neat job of balancing the lighting that the merlot failed to do.--charliezap

Thanks guys.The k5 camera is a real pleasure to use.The k20 holds its own up to a certain point then the k5 just pulls away especially with its high ISO capabilities.--charliezap

This is beautiful Charlie. I am drawn into the colours and into the scene, I just love the way the sun shimmers off the water. I really like the wood structure in the foreground. I see it as the intersection between culture and nature and it makes this sunset special. Lovely job. thanks for sharing.

Great job, Capn - I'm surprised how much this image looks like those I've shot around here in our coastal plain over the years. I don't recall ever visiting Salisbury, even though we'd run up from Watertown frequently to explore the North Shoah.

When the tide is up the scene takes on a totally different look that may or may not be as pleasing as the low tide shot.--capn zap

The more that I think about the shot I'm thinking that I may have used my Vivitar flash at the lowest setting possible just to give a little boost to the wooden structure in the foreground.--charliezap

Love it just the way it is Charlie. I often just use the on-board flash (diffused) to bring out foreground objects a touch, but this one honestly doesn't need it IMO.
