Picture of The Week (POTW) 406 June 5-June 11, 2016
Posted By: smf, 06-04-2016, 08:23 PM

Welcome to another round of Picture of the Week (POTW).

POTW is a great spot to show off any shots you take or are editing within the thread's date range. In other words, you can post your shots from this week AND last week.

Please consider including in your post any special circumstances or tips on technique or equipment which might be interesting to others.

Please identify your camera and lens if that information is easily available to you.

Also, please consider inviting other Pentaxians to join us.

Best wishes,
Stu

Some rules:
1) No theme, just post your favorite pix
2) Six or fewer images per person per thread to prevent thread bloat
3) Any Pentax, Ricoh or Samsung camera, film or digital

The current host will invite a new host via Private Message (PM). If possible, the new thread will be linked to the previous one and the new thread will start on Sunday. If the thread doesn't start, please contact bluestringer, Moderator, via PM.

Shots from around the garden

Pic 1: Spotted this amongst the monkey grass on a dewy morning. A bit blurry because the web was flopping up and down in the breeze. Looks like an orb weaver. K30 with 100mm f/2.8 macro.
Pic 2: This is an amazing seed pod from some weed with a diameter about 4 times that of a dandelion. Taken back-lit from a window. K30 with 100mm f2.8 macro.
Pic 3: Pretty echinacea taken in natural light about 30 minutes before sunset. I underexposed and had a dark object behind it. K30 with 100mm f2.8 macro.
Pic 4: The family collard lizard. Been in the garden for the last 4 years. K30 with DA 18-135mm lens.

Just acquired a new lens through the marketplace - an M series 100mm - f/4 - 1:2 macro. So I took it out for a very quick test drive last night just after I opened the box.

Here's what I got my first time with no knowledge at all about the lens. Nothing great, but a fair start.









And finally an image from last summer that I just reprocessed as monochrome this week. I had four versions of this in B&W, and still have two. Choose which you think is the better.

I call this image:

Forgotten Travels, Forgotten Dreams

Walk-about Niagara Falls

Great shots! Love this thread. From a visit to family in Niagara Falls Ontario.

Taken through a window. I love the ghostly effect of the reflections to the world behind me.
