Ugliest Fish In The World.
Lens: Pentax-A 50mm f/1.7 Lens Camera: Pentax K100D Super Photo Location: Backyard ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/125s Aperture: F5.6

Today was another lazy, laid back Oregon Sunday so after services I decided to break out one of my Pentax-A 50mm f1.7 lenses and scout the backyard for potential victims. I decided to dial in specifically on sharpness and exposure. The EXIF Data did not include the actual f/stop, so I took my best guess at f/5.6 given the exposure and the beautiful bokeh it produced. I would have to say the lens performed quite well not only with sharpness, but also color and exposure as well. Just a reminder to me that these older guys should be kept in the active files. Please enjoy and thanks so much for viewing.

I like the shot! Works well with the smooth background. Would like to see more of the feet, though.

Nice shot! I have to admit that I've by-passed this one until now. Wonderful colors and background. But I'll throw in with Adam that it could have been framed differently.
