POTW# 214 5th May to 18th May 2012
Posted By: xjjohnno, 05-12-2012, 07:22 PM

Welcome to edition #214 of the Pentax Forums' Picture of the Week. Special thanks to Pentaximus for hosting the previous week and inviting me to host the 214th edition of this series.

This edition covers photos from 05May - 18 May 2012. 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 favorite 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 bluestringer, Moderator via PM.

Here are the links to previous POTW threads:

A Only Iris

In a spring garden, this was the only Iris - I thought it rather a nice shot!

One of my first shots with the DA 12-24 f/4 on the K-x, with a bit of pp contrast bump and sharpen

RM Barker, love the colours in that iris pic.
Santoku, that 12-24 looks like it's in good hands by the looks of your barn pic.
A soggy Sunday here and some pics from some of the neighbours' gardens.

Very nice flower photos, xjjohnno. I must ask, what is the plant illustrated in the last picture. I have never seen such a thing!

Eucalyptus blossoms, this one is the snow gum RM Barker. Different eucalypts have their different coloured blossoms, some being quite vivid in colour.

The iris is beautiful, with that vivid green of the leaves. My father-in-law has a real green thumb, and the yard is filled with lilies.

Cool snails meditating there Ruggiex. The golden background bokeh works well.

Nice going, ruggiex. You really had your eyes open to catch this one - thankfully, they don't move too fast, eh?

First lilacs in Ottawa

I was shooting in Major's Hill Park, not really looking for lilacs but this one just grabbed my attention and begged to be photographed!

R M Barker, I can see how you succumbed to taking the pic of that lilac and a superb effort in capturing it there.

Thanks Xjjohnno for hosting this week. Love the Floral theme coming through this week complete with snails and all. Excellent images from RM Barker and you Exjjohnno,and that snail image is just wonderful. So in keeping with the floral theme, which just happen to have been mostly what I have been taking last week, here a contribution from me

Empty shell of a seed pod- I like the bluish outline of the shell.


Blue Beauty


A host of them




I travel down this road daily, and every time I do so, I reminded myself that I must take a pic of the beautiful view from the top. Last week I had the opportunity.


Hopefully I'll contribute some more later.
