Searching for Sharpness
Lens: Pentax-F 35-135mm Camera: K-50 Photo Location: Idaho ISO: 400 Shutter Speed: 1/200s Aperture: F8

This was taken not long after I acquired the Pentax-F 35-135mm lens and I was testing it's sharpness. It passed the test, as did my other F-series lenses.

Good sharpnes. Like the contrasting red/green the best though.
Would have been fancy if you vere able to line up that branch with both corners though, but not sure if its worth the risk of sacrificing the berries.

Very nice Dewman! The deep red backdrop is gorgeous behind the plant.

Thanks for all the nice comments. It's always fun to play with a "new" lens to see what it can do. This one doesn't get much use, but when I do, I feel confident in it's capabilities.

Bright, fresh lime green against deep dark reds. This one, together with the "Spring Blossoms" image, could make the beginnings of a beautiful little collection.

I prefer it the way it is - a bit on the darker side.

I've noticed that I've lately been more prone to bumping the gamma down a notch or two from what I would otherwise go with. Something about more saturation, I think.
