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.

Had one more roadracing shot accepted. I'm almost sorry I sold the Adaptall 80-200mm and TC. The shots I got this weekend with the Bigma just don't seem so sharp, but hopefully it's just a question of me getting used to the lens.

Looks like they got through my queue today. One more roadracing shot accepted and two declined. I have to admit I liked one of the ones that got rejected better than this one.

Thanks Josh...

Suresh... Love the textures in that rose shot...

Emil... Great MotoGP images...

Also, for what its worth, the Pentax judges seem to be moving much more quickly. I voted yes on several images within the past week and they showed up in the "Recently Added" section within days. Perhaps the new submission limits are finally making a difference in the volume of fluff that slowed down the entire process.

Congrats to all the new images!

Question to everyone having success getting accepted. I only got one accepted, and several, well two really, I was amazed didn't make it in. Do all of you only submit JPEGs out of the camera, or do some of you use RAW and pp them? I wonder if some of my rejections after a long delay -- telling me they passed peer review -- are due to the Exif being inspected and the Pentax person deciding I made too many changes in post...? So, does anyone else work their photos in post a good deal if even not in a major way, i.e. just a lot of little changes, and still get accepted?

On mine some are raw and some jpeg from the camera (mainlly I shoot raw+ - no need but I like it ) but I always check them on CS3 for little levels, curves or contrast adjustment before submiting.
Others are PP on B&W acording to my mood.
