Photo of the Week #117 June 6 - June 20
Posted By: bbluesman, 06-10-2010, 10:12 PM

Welcome to 117th edition of the Pentax Forum's Picture of the Week! This edition covers photos taken between June 6 and June 20, 2010.

Thanks to JeffJS for hosting last week. I'm putting thread up a little early because I'll be away from computer over the weekend and didn't want to hang anybody up. Yes, I'll have my Pentax camera with me-Doh!

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.

So grab your gear and do your thing and share the optical love around.



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!

planedriver: Lovely sharp wide angles. The "boat" is very nice.

Clou: Outstanding work as always!

I strived to get a gritty tonality on these, but still with colour.

A couple more from tonight. I noticed from the dining room window that the clouds looked interesting and it might be a nice sunset. You never have enough sunset shots now do you?





The first 2 were taken with the K10D and DA*16-50mm. This last one with the K-x and Sigma 70-200 f2.8. The K10 just couldn't take a shot like this in low light and track a flying bird. ISO1600

Thanks Rob-I'd have to say the same about overpass. Surreal effect.
