Pentax Photo Gallery (PPG) entries
Posted By: Buddha Jones, 12-27-2007, 11:50 AM

Hello all! I am going to make this a sticky post in hopes that I can get all of you who have submitted pictures to the Pentax Photo Gallery (PPG) and have had them accepted please post a couple of them here and please link back to your gallery so we can see your work. We have so many incredible photogs on this site I am curious to see what Pentax considers your best work.

Thanks!

Some amazing images being accepted.....a huge congratulations to all the recent acceptance.

Axl (Peter) your PPG gallery is extremely inspirational, enjoyed every image there. I am wanting to branch into a style that I see in many of your images. Images that accentuate the geometry of objects, and as this is usually better achieved with monochrome most of yours are for such images. Images like the "british museum", "Tunnel vision", "wesfield" and "Oxford Street, but differently" to mention a few. I also see that you try to include an element/person as a focal point in certain shots that showcase interesting lines and curves.

Any advice on shooting such images...do you see interesting architectural elements and that happens to be such images, or are you seeking interesting patterns and shapes to shoot and if you see one is there a trick to choosing the appropriate focal length? Is there anything special to look out for in regards to lighting etc.....anyhow, the post is more to tahnk you for the inspirational work and secondarily on seeking any specific advice, if any.

PPG images are flying through the process now, much faster than at any time I can recall.

I'll share a recent acceptance of mine (Also, another one got into the premiere collection making it a total of three for me there), but this one is in the regular gallery, but I like it very much.

I loved that one when I voted on it, pcarfan. Very nice.

btw, I've been enjoying my FA43 more and more. When the focus is on, goddamn is it ever sharp, especially from about 2.8 to 4.

Thank you.

Yeah that lens is wickedly sharp between 2.8 and 4, with the microcontrast nothing else even compares. I bought that lens when I still had my K10D and remember being disspointed with it for wideopen shots, then later I downloaded the debug mode and adjusted the focus (needed something like +360) and since then have been happy with it's perfromance from at all apertures - a truly remarkable lens. Glad you are enjoying yours as well.

Skid, that's an amazing assortment of shots in a broad spectrum. You seem to have a knack for finding making the most of opportunities. I particularly enjoy the b & W shots. I like the bridge shot very much. Freddy
