Smc-m 100/2.8 is a vastly underrated lens. Very contrasty and good colors. I just wish it had more aperture blades. Bokeh would be better. At a distance this lens is great.
Not by me...
Sometimes, however, I do find the focal length difficult to use on APS-C... that's one of the reasons I don't find the 77mm LTD so appealing... maybe I'm wrong it that respect...

Well done, maybe a touch underexposed, which can happen with Green Button metering. A great Pentax manual lens!

You have to print that one! Make it a large print. Great shot.

This (and the whole series) is wonderful! I am sure I have looked closely at literally hundreds of photos of Hagia Sophia but the color and perspective in this shot are breathtaking.

One more with M100 f/4. Forgot that I set the camera to default, and got camera's jpeg instead of raw. Camera tends to yellow/ brown velvet black wings, and with jpeg there is not much room for adjustment.

I really like the second of those -- such a range of urban and industrial landscape. I wish I could see a bit more of the lower left, though -- the masts and steeple peeking in make such a good thematic counterpoint to the vast sweep of modern industry across the river, and this would be even stronger (I think) with a bit more weight there.

Nice job -- strong composition with those alternating blocks of complementary colors.
