Weekly 113 - Photo of the week May 9th-23rd 2010
Posted By: Peter Zack, 05-16-2010, 08:11 PM

Welcome to 113th edition of the Pentax Forum's Picture of the Week! This edition covers photos taken between 9-23 May 2010.

Thanks to rparmar for hosting last week.

POTW is a great way to see what Pentax owners are doing with their cameras as they post whatever pictures they took during the active week. Check in here to see a nice variety of great photos.

So grab your camera, get out there and shoot! Then come on back here and share your shots with your fellow Pentaxians!

Again same rules as before:

1) No theme, just post your favourite pix.

2) Let's keep it to under 6 images per post just so the thread doesn't get too big each week.

3) Any Pentax camera or Samsung SLR is fine, whether it's film, P&S, or DSLR.

4) Date: Sunday 2 May 2010 to Sunday 16 May 2010. Enter anything you shot last week or during this current week until the thread closes. Old shots with a new look from post processing during the open time period are also welcome.

5) The current host will appoint the new host as an invitation via PM. If possible, the new thread will be linked to the previous one and the new thread will start between 12:00EST and 5PM EST on the Sunday. If the thread doesn't start, please contact Peter Zack, Moderator via PM.

Previous hosts: Each one is a hotlink to that POTW thread to look past at the previous 109 weeks. 1 Peter Zack, 2Eaglerapids 3 rmtagg, 4 Peter Zack, 5 daacon, 6 Bramela, 7 mtnbearhug, 8 dantuyhoa, 9 gawan,10 roentarre, 11 daacon, 12 Kris, 13 mtnbearhug, 14 SCGushue, 15 daacon, 16 maxwell1295, 17 dantuyhoa, 18 daacon, 19 maxwell1295 19(2) daacon, 20 Bramela, 21 Syb, 22 maxwell1295, 23 maxwell1295, 24 dantuyhoa, 25 Gawan, 26 Peter Zack, 27 borno, 28 daacon, 29 gawan, 30 Damn Brit, 31 maxwell1295 32 maxwell1295 , 33 dantuyhoa, 34 daacon, 35 Peter Zack, 36 Damn Brit, 37 Borno, 38 Kevint, 39 Peter Zack, 40 Timbo13, 41 daacon, 42 daacon, 43 gawan, 44 dantuyhoa, 45 daacon, 46 Rense, 47 daacon, 48 Rense, 49 borno, 50 Rense, 51 daacon, 52 Peter Zack, 53 Peter Zack, 54 dadipentax, 55 David Whiteley, 56 planedriver, 57 daacon,58 Bramela, 59 daacon, 60 gawan, 61 virgilr, 62 daacon, 63 RickL, 64 Peter Zack, 65 Peter Zack, 66 Causey 67 daacon, 68 Bramela, 69 georgeweb, 70 daacon, 71 seacapt, 72 daacon, 73 AOski, 74 Rense 75 eccs19, 76 daacon, 77 xs400, 78 daacon, 79 Bramela, 80 borno, 81 legacyb4, 82 daacon, 83 gawan, 84 Rense, 85 Peter Zack, 86 davef, 87 davef, 88 xjjohnno 89 Bramela , 90 Peter Zack, 91 daacon, 92 stevebrot ,93 reeftool, 94 jezza323, 95 oldschool, 96 Iris, 97 Rense, 98 planedriver, 99 xs400, 100 Peter Zack, 101 Netuser 102 Photolady, 103 Tamia,

I like these Frank. Particularly the second shot. The last chain link is fairly sharp with everything else being full of motion blur. The first one has great colour.

I had an incredibly busy weekend, attending my daughters graduation and commencement ceremony at St. Lawrence University. We got to hear a speech by Supreme Court Justice Sandra Sotomeyer, see the joyful time of graduation and the sad moments of saying goodbye to friends who have almost become family over the past 4 years.

Thanks for hosting, Peter. Go Habs!

Frank, I really like those photos. I've been bitten by the blur bug this week as well...

Lisa, another striking one from you.

Reeftool, a bittersweet time well captured.

Oldschool, what a mix of people! Looks like Mardi Gras.

I hope no one minds a deviation from the usual, but I've been playing with abstracts of natural scenes this week. It all began with a mistake. I was shooting a photo at slow shutter speed (1/8) and accidentally turned the telephoto ring on my zoom lens. I liked the resulting pattern, so thought I'd try a few deliberate abstracts and blurs on my hike today. Here they are:

Woodland Sunrise




Clearing in the Pine Wood




Blue Sky and New Leaves




Copse




From Shade Into Light

Thanks so much Lisa and Frank.

Mark, those willows are fabulous.

Song_hm, very moving photo of the nestling. Captures the dependency and vulnerability of baby birds very well.

Here are a couple photos from yesterday...

Butterfly and Lilac




Bluets

I'll list this as things parents don't want to see visiting their daughters dorm room. The first is the shotski. I never got to see this gizmo in action and the second is what appears to be the instructions.
