Great photos, you would be pleased with this set. Your 18-135 must be a very good copy, I have never seen images this sharp from mime or any other copy. The boy with the fish is awesome and the chameleon would make great print.

Thank you - the K5II and 18-135 WR lens have been my first DSLR and lens and I have been pleased with it so far!

Nice set, I'm jealous you got there before I did! If I could offer one small bit of advice it would be to maybe try a bit of noise reduction on the 5th image. Unless you were going for a grainy look, then by all means keep it! Also- don't let anyone try to shame you for shooting in Program or full Auto mode- these cameras know what they're doing as evidenced by your dazzling chameleon shot, keep it up!

Yes thank you for that advice, 'gildedfool' - I don't tend to do any post-processing work but I might just have a go at the noise reduction you suggested - Thank you!

Madagascar
An island full of exotic things to photograph, really like the first image of the local transport, those 'Teapot Baobab' and that deep deep blue sky, well done.

yeah, the chameleon is the one that stands out, at least for printing purposes. What are those trees in the first picture?

The trees are Baobabs Imps - apparently Madagascar is quite famous for them
