Happy New Year Pentax Nation with my new K5IIs
Camera: K5IIs Photo Location: Saugus Ma. ISO: 50 
Posted By: charliezap, 12-28-2014, 02:48 PM

I hope everyone got through the holidays and are anticipating a fine New Year.I got the K5IIs just before Christmas. At half price($496) it appealed to me. My K5 is still going strong with over a 25,000 shutter count and it will be relegated to a fine backup camera for hopefully years to come.Happy New Year to All---charliezap

Nice posterization.
Thanks Nelson. Now and then the filters do work well to make a so-so picture into one that is different and sometimes a keeper.--charliezap

Been there, tried that. Picked the K5 up a couple of days ago and was informed by Mrs. jac to leave her camera alone.
Not certain that's happy cardinal but nice thoughts and nice image.
