Raaain doesn't scar my K-5 w/ 55*
Lens: DA* 55 Camera: k5 ISO: 200 
Posted By: Scootatheschool1990, 06-23-2012, 01:02 AM

I'm doing this project where I take a photo for every day during the course of a year. Todays shoot went well and I learned a LOT about my camera/ lenses -mainly how water resistant the k-5 really is, how lower apertures are usually better when shooting flowers, and how vital a lens hood is in the rain! ha ha

Overcast, slight wind, and rain made for a typical day in Oregon, but with the K-5 I was able to take these pictures! (WOO HOO! Eat that canikon!) The rain and wind complicated shooting a bit so I decided to play around with a 5-11 stop aperture. These pictures are from the flower selection in my front yard. (pretty cool: my grandpa planted roses so that a different flower would bloom every week from Spring-fall. Awesome grandpa.)

Are these images too saturated? I have dual monitors and on one it's super saturated and the other is just perfect with these images. Thanks
