Try cropping the tunnel so that no interior of the car is shown

Nice pictures.

I have the F35-70 lens as well. Really nice old glass.
Your pictures are fine.
Auto white balance cannot handle house incandescent lights.
You might set the white balance manually to remove the orange glow.

Nice work, faust. Love the tunnel shot.

That bird looks a lot like a Cassowary... which is a flightless Aussie bird and very dangerous.

Good shooting there. I absolutely loved this lens. I had the "A" version and later the "F" version. They're really good walkaround lenses and are one of the great Pentax bargain lenses. The macro ability makes it a great lens for closeups and it does portaits really well too. I have yet to find a Pentax lens that captures color better than those old 35-70's

I like the tunnel shot, looks like the Fort McHenry tunnel in baltimore. Nice close-ups too, I got some of my favorite shots with an old a-35-70mm, I ought to use it more often

yes I agree! I was just actually looking for inexpensive lenses when I found this on ebay, and I am really happy with it. keeps me busy until I get a better lens
