I'm thinkin', "This guy's in BC and that's the best scenery he can find?" but also, "What a terrific photo of an essentially pedestrian subject!" The composition and processing are great and it really takes advantage of the lens. Nice work!
They can't all be ready for a 20"x30" framing.. Living in BC (interior) is great for mountains/streams and such.. but it's all what you enjoy shooting too.. I would LOVE to shoot long exposure sea-scapes, sure as hell not going to happen here though!

Pentax K-5
FA43/1.9 Limited


In case you're wondering why all I have posted from this lens is dance photos from early December.....it is because that remains the last time I took it out and used it.

Trees from today

Two from today with the FA 31 Limited. I really like the second one - it was dreamy, but I suck at processing and not sure how to bring it out :| Any tips?

get two different shots via PP: one should has exposure correction to show unburned sky. Another one should be exposurecorrected to show ground. Then you can blend these two images with exposure fusion. Enfuse - PanoTools.org Wiki
This method (exposure fusion) differs from HDR. HDR methods work with high dynamic range pictures by mapping its tones to narrower range (that can be represented on paper, etc). Unlike them, exposure fusion methods works by weighting each pixel of given images (assuming they are representing exactly the same object) and then combining the result pixel as a weighted sum of pixels. It's not that simple though, artifacts tend to appear at high contrast edges. This issue can be overcomed by different methods, the enfuse tool I put link at uses multiresolution spline technique, which bases on gauss and laplace image decompostions.
IMO the results taken with exposure fusion are usually much better than ones taken with HDR.

Nice shots Bickrs! Very 3D, I like them a lot.

Heres a gritty film shot with my beaten up and ancient K2, armed with FA 31 - The film was Ilford Delta 3200, shot and develop as ASA 1600

The picture was a bit underexposed as I had forgotten to compensate for the filter that was attached to the lens. Anyway, I somehow like the mood of it.

Thank You

Very gritty shot indeed. With the smoke, I love the mood it conveys!
