Sprung Spring Yippee
Lens: TC 1.7, Pentax F 70 - 210 f/4 - 5.6 Camera: K5 Photo Location: Woods and Garden 
Posted By: tessfully, 05-03-2013, 04:23 AM

Yesterday was HOT!! and my garden popped Inspired by Marc (MSL) I took my $35.00 zoom with the 1.7x teleconverter for a walk.

I have come to understand that each of my lens' has its own personality. Some are fun and playful, others quite serious. Even with all things being equal, two lenses will produce very different results at the same focal length. And it is always inspiring to discover something new about an old friend. That was the case yesterday and i can't wait to head out with the combination this morning.

Some results....

I found old rusted partitions of some kind in the woods










Back at home... my garden!















Tripper on the walk... this is zoomed out to 210 with the teleconverter

Looks like you had fun Tess, which if you aren't getting paid is the point of the exercise
Nice shots - the lens brought out the real colours of the rust and flowers.

It was fun... I too thought the colours were amazing and something about them quite different from my Tamron....I think it is a tonal thing.

I do find with the teleconverter I have to select a small aperture/larger number. My usual f/8 and f/11 for my water shots was too shallow. Going to try again this morning.

Wonderful series, Tess. What $35 zoom is it that you are using? Looks to work great.

Great shots with super colours and clarity. Looks like spring is making it through the long winter and recent floods after all! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks gj! I have a Pentax F 70 - 210. Just an excellent lens except it is rather loud when it focuses.

Thank you fotoggaffer! We are down your way at the end of the month. I guess we'll miss the blossoms?

The first photo, very eye catching. I like the contrast between decay and renew growth. Consider taking a tighter shot of the budding leaves and the rusted metal.
