Lens: 250mm Camera: pentax K100d Photo Location: Rosendale, WI ISO: 400 Shutter Speed: 1/750s Aperture: F5.6 
Posted By: mjhuee, 03-23-2010, 03:11 PM

Pentax K100d with a Tamron adaptall 80-250mm, f3.8 lens. Shot through a double glazed window to a tree around twenty feet away. I have other images from this tamron lens on my flickr page, and although this lens weighs a lot, I am liking the images from it as I get to know my K100d and k2000 better.

Any comments and/or criticisms appreciated

great shot considering you aren't supposed to shoot through windows

Thank you. I know that extra layers of glass can cause problems. I tried to be as perpendicular to the glass and close enough so that no internal reflections of the house would be visible.
