More photos with my new Pentax-m 50mm f1.7
Posted By: ausmoose, 02-28-2014, 08:54 PM

I am so happy with this lens - thanks to all who recommended it

Here are some pics from earlier this morning - am loving the sharpness and bokeh. Almost all photos were at f4.

It was raining lightly and had been raining heavily earlier this morning so the feature of the photos was drops and rain. No, a spray bottle was not used!! And no PP has been done since I don't have any programs ATM.

1. We must have a hole in the roof of our deck as there was a little splash here on the table.


2. The clothes line looked really neat with the water droplets, so I snapped a couple different views of it.


3. Another view.. this is my favourite clothes line pic.


4. I was surprised with the background bokeh here.. now that I think about it I would have rather had a slightly bigger DOF but I was still happy with this result.


5. We have a giant plant in the corner of our backyard and aren't real sure of what it's called. But it looked really cool in the rain so I took some photos


6. Another leaf photo..


7. The frangipanis were looking lovely and pink with the glistening drops atop them.


8. I tried a couple different angles, not sure which one is my favourite.


9. This one was not my favourite photo, but was good enough to include here (I think )..


10. This was my favourite photo of the shoot.


Please post your C&C, thanks for looking!

The "Giant Plant" looks like an artichoke, but hard to tell from just a leaf.

It's a lot bigger than an artichoke plant. It takes up a block of at least 2x2m in our backyard.

Great series of photos! For what its worth, I'd have gone with number 8 for its beautiful simplicity.

Looks like you have mastered the lens. Great job. I love the first closeline shot a lot. The flowers are gorgeous.

Thanks so much slowpez. The first close line pic is a little underexposed though - will fix it up eventually with PP.

This was my favourite photo of the shoot.
Well done -- a classic composition, with the central flower in sharp focus, soft colors and attractive raindrops. Welcome to the Single challenge!

Lovely. Great start.
Look in the post at the start of the monthly thread for instructions how to link your photos correctly. Most of us struggle with it first time around.

Have linked my photo for day 2 - hopefully I've done it the right way.

You must have some patience to glue all those drops so neatly in the fourth image.

Looks like some sort of Aroid (philodendron relative) to me, hard to be sure without a wider shot of the leaf and plant.

But the images are terrific! Well done!
