Rodeo Photo (first shots with Tamron 70-200 f2.8)
Camera: K7 Photo Location: Kyabram Rodeo, Victoria, Australia ISO: 200 
Posted By: JLou, 03-08-2010, 02:32 AM

Hi all, its been a long time since I have posted, but I have recently upgraded my kit, and have been playing are reading here lots!!

I bought a K7 and a few lenses (used to have a K100D and the kit lenses, that was about three years old). I then added a Tamron f2.8 70 - 200 to the collection (bought from Bonovox here).

I said I'd share some photos I took with it over this past weekend.

The weather conditions were very wet. The photos in the afternoon were not quite as difficult as the night time . . . then I had to up the ISO to 3200 and the photos get a a lot grainier (which I tried to fix a little in Lightroom).

I have only recently started shooting in RAW, and I am just learning Lightroom.
If you click on the photo it will take you to my flickr site and you can view the EXIF data and larger image there. (You can also see more rodeo photos if you want to check out the album!)

Thanks for taking the time to look. Any and all comments are welcome

Good action shots! The second shot is just spot on, IMO!
