I won't! and Please do!

I like all the work you have posted. This group seems like characters. The last portrait in this series puffs up big images. The added Madonna is great. The color and PP brings you in and gets my eyes settling down on her while taking in her surroundings.

Great shots. They look like Pentax rogues for sure.

What an artistic-looking bunch!

These regional/city meetings are an interesting idea. It is particularly good to have a posting with shots taken by the group.

Very good. No...very, very good.

What a Motley Crew

Hi Fragla,

There is nobody doing anything more eye and mind catching IMO right now. I am drawn in to each of your posts just to see what you have this time. Again, just like in your last few threads, the PP is wonderful. But your portrait comps here are really nice. The PP seems to comliment each face in it's own way.

Words fail to say how much I enjoy these...

P.S. the last pentaxian with the cigar looks like the Italian/American actor Joe Pesci, could be his twin in that shot. And is one of the best looking shots I have seen of late...

Thank you all for you comments.When I began photography, 2nd of april 2008 I spent most of my time trying to understand functions of my camera.Later most of my time I used to watch portraits of magnum photos and oldschool photographers.When I looked at my portaits' I had feeling of something missing, thus I spent my time trying to figure out . Whats wrong with my shots?
That how Im trying to improve myself...

I REALLY like the first and last shots.

8 months since you started and you way way better then I will ever be - and I started in the 60s.

Yes, they do look like "rogue" Pentaxists and each one is saying "don't muck with me pal."

Fragla, your PP has become your signature - well done.

I don't know what to say about that last shot. It's an excellent capture but incredibly sad. Life can be so harsh for so many.
