An interesting series of shots, the camera handles the low light very well.

Thanks, it sure does. K20d was twice as noisy at iso 1600!

Good set, equally impressed with the ISO and the operator!

Beautiful set, Julie! I really love the light and contrasts in your b/w shots. The K-30 is awesome, but you are quite talented yourself!!

Why not both? The K-30 is just a paperweight without an operator.
I enjoyed your series

Sharp, crisp and edgy - these shots have that "Twilight Zone" look and feel I love so much. Nice job, Julie. BTW, we have good 'ol Pharaohs Fury at the Kemah Boardwalk here in Texas and very close to where we dock our boat.

Great shots....
It's not the camera... those shots could be full of noise or grain and still be great shots.

Yes, I could see the shapes and symmetry captured here. Its not the camera but the one behind the camera that brings those features out.... Nice..
