Picture of The Week (POTW) 454 May 1st— May 15th, 2017
Posted By: StephenHampshire, 05-08-2017, 02:15 AM

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

POTW is a great spot to show off six or fewer 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.

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

And please invite other Pentaxians to join us.

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. If the thread doesn't start, please contact the host, via PM.

Here are the records of recent POTW thread hosts: , 390 smf 391 smf 392 smf 393 smf 394 smf 395 smf 396 smf 397 smf 398 smf 399 smf 400 smf 401 smf 402 smf 403 smf 404 smf 405 smf 406 smf,407 ramseybuckeye, 408 ramseybuckeye, 409 stubyles, 410 stubyles, 411 stubyles, 412-423 SD_Bob, 424-427 dave kitson 428-451 smf 452 stephenhampshire 453 StephenHampshire

I've been using my K1 a bit more...the top one is with a 2nd hand Tamron 28-300 2superzoom", it is actually quite decent


The other two are with the DFA 28-105 WR, very impressed with this, sharp wide open, a nice lens.

Thanks for hosting again, Stephen, and for posting more of your excellent railroad images!

The images below were captured during a fundraising photo shoot at The Association To Rescue Kritters (The A.R.K.) at St. Helen, Michigan.

Among the six birds available for photography were a snowy owl, great horned owl, red-tailed hawk and American kestrel.

My K-S2 with smc Pentax M Macro 1:4 100 was handheld.

Best wishes,
Stu

HI all and happy Sunday. I expect I'll be closing out this week's POTW...

I went for a walk on an island called Peng Chau last weekend (Hong Kong). I used my DA* 300mm lens for a couple of pseudo-macros (either too lazy to change lenses or didn't have time), but fortunately it's such a nice lens I can get away with it. The lizard was sunning himself on a pile of scrap iron and the butterfly stayed on the branch long enough for me to get several shots (but I'm sure if I'd gotten close with my macro it would have flown off). There is a nice variety of butterflies in Hong Kong and it appears to be the right time of year to see them. Both photos are with my K-5 classic and the aforementioned 300mm.
