Picture of the Week (POTW) # 457- 22 May 2017- 04 June 2017
Posted By: noelcmn, 05-29-2017, 02:24 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.

To post your great photos, just hit reply and attach away


• 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, 453, 454 StephenHampshire 455 Alsyfox, 456 StepehenHampshire

And starting us off

The beautiful Black Sunbird-this is the female, and I love that bit of iridescence on the throat

And my passion for street art goes on unabated,

And darters and cormorants were having a field day at Zoo Lake

I was fortunate to go on a tour of Sunnylands, out in Rancho Mirage last week. Getting tickets to tour the main house can be difficult, so playing hooky from work one day was a good call. Unfortunately, they only allow photos at the Visitor's Center and the grounds, but they are beautiful. The Visitor Center is set on 15 acres and has 53,000 plants. The main house sits on 200 acres.

Both the tight shot of the singing red-winged blackbird and the other photo, "Singing Its Little Heart Out," were captured with my smc Pentax-F 1:4.5-5.6 on my handheld K-S2. The black and white conversion was made in Silver Efex Pro from the Nik Collection.
