Photo of the Week #116 May 30 - June 13
Posted By: JeffJS, 06-06-2010, 02:08 PM

Welcome to 116th edition of the Pentax Forum's Picture of the Week! This edition covers photos taken between 30 May and 13 June 2010.

Thanks to Tamia for hosting last week (sorry Tamia, just found my error here)..

POTW is a great place to show what you're shooting day-to-day with your Pentax cameras. It gives us all a chance to virtually visit with one another, to get a glimpse of what it's like where others live and where they've been, and to extend the same invitation to others to share what we've been seeing.

Summer is officially launched here in the northern hemisphere, but our southern hemisphere counterparts are heading into their winter. It's a good time to compare the shoulder seasons from each part of the globe. So take your camera out and shoot some photos to share round with fellow Pentaxians!

Yes, I've borrowed Tamia's text as it still fits. Enjoy the week.


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 30 May 2010 to Sunday 13 June 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 Noon EDT and 5PM EDT on Sunday. If the thread doesn't start, please contact Peter Zack, Moderator via PM.


Ready? Great! Shoot and post!

Nice photos everyone. I can't type much but this:

by Peter, makes a lot of sense....."The buttercup was with a 2xTC with the glass removed to make an extension tube" Wish I'd have thought of it.

Here is a few I've been working on lately. Just flowers but mine as I grew them from seed I collected from the same kind of plants last year.

One from today. Baby robins are now out of their nest. Shame the grass was in it's face. I didn't want to get to close and totally disturb it.

PhotoLady Here's a couple pics of the TC. The glass just screws out very easily and could be replaced. It has the contacts, so you can use it with M42 (w adapter) and any other lens. Using an A, F, FA, Etc. you have a macro lens with AE control. Just MF

PL, if you can, try to find the model I have. I think they come up fairly regularly. Some of them are hard to get the glass out of and need some disassembly. With this one, it takes about 10 seconds. In fact I have a Takumar A version here and I'll take a look at it to see if the glass comes out. If you want it, we can work something out. Just let me check over the weekend to see if I can get the glass out without ruining it.

Here is another baby robin, this one hiding his face behind a branch. This shot was taken through my living room window but this little fella would not hold still.

I love the juxtaposition of the statue and the cranes, sort of industrial meets mythological!

Thanks Joe. it was not that easy to get a shot that looked at all interesting.

Here's one from a series of people shots. I have several more but I started a thread for them so as not to overload this one.

Here's a few from a car show last weekend in Liverpool New York. It was a gloomy day with on and off rain showers, but my camera and I had fun anyway...
