Low tide at Half Moon Beach
Lens: Pentax 17-70 f4 Camera: K-5 IIs Photo Location: Gloucester, MA ISO: 80 Aperture: F8 
Posted By: richard_b, 11-06-2012, 06:00 PM

I have been photographing a few years, but the K-5 IIs is my first Pentax. For my first landscape shoot I went to one of my favorite spots at Half Moon Beach, Gloucester, Mass. All shots with the 17-70 f4, tripod mounted and MLU. Captured as DNG processed in Aperture

#1


#2


#3


#4


#5 (same spot as #3, but 2 minutes later - its amazing how the light can change so quickly!


Any comment welcome!

Richard.

Very nice....very sharp. It appears to be true about the sharpness of the 11s.

Very nice shots... The K-5 excels at this kind of shot. It's where that Dynamic Range that so many guys say "that's not important to me " about, really comes into play. You've made good use of it.

I agree completely on the dynamic range. It's always been a key specification for me and the K-5 handles DR exceptionally well.
