Did my very first try out using the TAv function on my K10D. Was quite pleased with this shot though you real professionals will probably fall about laughing...


15seconds F:5.0 48mm ISO 100


15seconds F:5.6 60mm ISO 100

Shot with my 35-80 zoom

Interesting shots. I use TAv all the time with my Macro shots as I find it convenient.

Without a frame of reference of your subject I can't say whether or not you did a good job with it or not, but hey, I like it!

I also like using TAv mode for certain shots, but I really like this one. Is it as big as your photo makes it out to be?

I concur with jct us101's comment.
Without a frame of reference, like a subject (for example a tree, a human being etc) it is difficult to comment if the picture is good or not.
Never-the-less, I like the first picture because it looks brighter. (sure, at f/5 as compared with the second at f/5.6)
Anyway, thank you for sharing, GordonZA.

Cheers.

I am not sure what the subject is supposed to be here. Just a rock? Is it the shape you are interested in or the texture? A B&W conversion might work in either case.

I was just fascinated by the effect of the light on the rock bringing out the golden colour in the sandstone cliffs.

(The cliffs are around 1000m + high)

OK, I understand now. Unfortunately there is nothing to indicate scale. I often have this problem as well. Short of inserting a friend into the frame there is often little one can do.
