Pentax K100d Super, 50mm FA lens, F2.8, 1/350, ISO 400
Today is rainy, grey day, the greens are popping and the light screams for Bokeh, going out with the Super and the 50mm FA lens...Tally Ho!

Nice one, pin sharp. A 1:1 crop would do this image more justice.

You can almost hear the thought- 'if you were a little closer and this window wasn't here...'

Nice detail in this one.

Nice sharp shot of the cat. Now the question is what is he looking at, a mouse walking across the top of the window sill?

A terrific image that defines the whole notion of "capture".

That is an excellent shot. Everything works so well together, the soft almost washed out background, the shallow depth of field, the tack sharp face and eyes, and the appearance of spontaneity, all make this shot outstounding!

Thanks so much all of you.
Trippy is a rescued stray, very much the Huntress, she's watching a bug fly against the window.
For this type of work, I adore the Pentax and this lens.
Fast glass and primes rule!
