POTW Photo Of The Week 168 May 29 - June 12
Posted By: JeffJS, 06-05-2011, 06:32 PM

Welcome to edition 168 of the Pentax Forum's Picture of the Week. Thanks to Mattt for hosting last week!

This edition covers photos from 29 May - June 12 2011. That lets you show off any shots you took last week but haven't processed until now. In other words, you can post your shots from this week AND last week.

POTW is a great place to show what you've been shooting day-to-day. It gives us all a chance to see what other members are up to with their Pentax (and Samsung) cameras in the parts of the world in which they live or have visited. We can share ideas, learn from one another, and have a good time.

So show us what you've seen in your little corner of the planet! Looking forward to seeing all of what's out there this week. A special welcome to all new members!

Again same rules as always:

1) No theme, just post your favourite pix.

2) Lets keep it to fewer than 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) Enter anything you shot last week or during this current week until the thread closes.

5) The current host will appoint the new host as an invitation via Private Message (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.

Here are the links to previous POTW threads:

Busy week for me, not much opportunity to stop and smell the roses. I noticed my clematis vine was in blossom and grabbed the camera because they dont last long... Tomorrow should be really nice if the rain doesnt destroy the fragile blossom.

Took out the 35mm Macro and 43mm Ltds during some mid-week gardening on the islands:

(This next one was begging for a CPL, but I didn't bring it...)

Richard, Looks like you and that 40 are getting along quite well. Certainly better than the guy in the second shot who is probably wishing he had a golf club instead of a baseball bat. The motorcycle shot is phenomenal.

Noelcmn, all well captured, especially the double flare.

Photolady, Pelican scares a fish school, is a great catch.

Mattt, nicely done. Looking forward to see what pops out of it.

Stevebrot, all well done. The mouse trap is hilarious.

panoguy, all well done as well. Don't sweat it. I never have a polarizer either.

From me, I've done nothing but flowers and the hound this week. Last post was a flower so, You guessed it...



The Hound bids you all a good day and thanks you for your participation.

Thanks JeffJS, and thanks to "the hound" who convinced me (via your photo on The Online Photographer) to get a K-5. Lovely camera!
