The Anglican Church facing Philip's Square, Montreal, CANADA.
Lens: DA 55-300 mm ED Camera: Pentax K20 Photo Location: Quebec, CANADA ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/250s Aperture: F9.5

I was trying my then new DA 55-300 mm f/4-5.8 ED lens on my K20. In Montreal, facing Philip's Square near the "The Hudson's Bay Store" on Sainte Catherine Street, you find this old Anglican Church with a characteristic steeple, a colorful metallic roof and a medieval clock. First image was taken at 55 mm FL, the second at 300 mm FL, both @ f/9.5 on my K20. This older DA zoom performed quite well on the K20 as well as on the K5 but was a "disaster" on the K3. I ended up giving it to my daughter who lives in the suburbs of Montreal, on the West Island.

Idk where this super-bright and saturated blue comes from, but the green is very pleasing. A nice image to stare ..

THX !

I think the Samsung sensor on the K20 amplified "a little" blue objects. Graphically the saturated blue is not unpleasant. You have to play with your "Color Palette" in order to attenuate this tendency but then, images become bland and lifeless.

Best Regards

Let it be vivid saturated blue and vivid green and rich ochers in the stone steeple.
Makes it a striking image.
Angky.

I much prefer saturated colors to bland, pastel images. My color vision is very strange (according to my ophtalmologist, I have the "van Gogh syndrome"), having eyes very sensitive to yellow and blue. Sometimes my choice of colors may seem strange to people with "normal" color vision. But let me tell you that what I see is totally beautiful.

I really like the perspective of the first shot, mixing the classic church with a piece of a modern building behind it.

I was trying this zoom lens at both of its extremities (55 mm and 300 mm). It behaved quite well on older (10 to 16 Mpx) sensors but couldn't handle the 24 Mpx sensor of the K3. I replaced it with an HD DA 55-300 mm f/4-5.8 ED version and, lo and behold, this new lens behaved totally differently and it gives great images even on the K3 III.

Regards
