Picture of the Week (POTW) # 471 - 4 September to 18 September 2017
Posted By: MadMathMind, 09-11-2017, 10:37 PM

Welcome to Picture of the Week (POTW) for the week ending 18 September 2017. Hosting one more because I forgot to ask someone else, sorry.

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, that is 4 September to 18 September.

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

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, 453, 454 StephenHampshire 455 Aslyfox, 456 StepehenHampshire, 457 noelcmn, 458 noelcmn, 459 noelcmn, 460 noelcmn, 461 noelcmn, 462 noelcmn, 463 noelcmn, 464 noelcmn, 465 noelcmn, 466 noelcmn, 467 Aslyfox, 468 rjbrett, 469-470 aaacb 471 Madmathmind

Mine were taken with the K-1; all but the group one were done with the FA77. Cactus flash system, probably two lights for every one of them (I'm not using single light as much as I used to), and some collection of neutral density filters.

Shadow and Light

the Topeka Zoo and Conservation Center has two Sumatran Tigers, one male and one female, this is the female quickly pacing its enclosure

the light and shadow changing is a result of the tiger changing position as it moved around the " enhancement " features placed in the enclosure

some time there is no light, other times, the light is on some part of the body but not another (side, ear, back of the face, even a leg ), and finally there is only a little glint of reflected light in the eyes ( more in its left than its right )

photographed hand held, natural light via the strong glass window of the enclosure using my K 3 + HD PENTAX-D FA 150-450mm F4.5-5.6 ED DC AW

all except the last photo:

Focal Length 450.0mm (35mm equivalent: 675mm)
Exposure Time 1/1000s (0.0010)
Aperture F/10.0

_________________________

Focal Length 290.0mm (35mm equivalent: 435mm)
Exposure Time 1/1000s (0.0010)
Aperture F/10.0
290.0mm (35mm equivalent: 435mm)

Puttering around the neighborhood.
This first one is an outtake from this week's photo challenge, flash freeze frame. Technically it's probably better than the one I submitted, but I thought the other one was prettier.


A couple of locals too worried about the rain to worry about the weirdo with the camera.


The first one is a photo from my Pentax, but the following two are screenshots from video from the same camera. The subject is a drill that hit a natural gas deposit and is now being turned into a decoration so it doesn't delay the light rail planned for the land strip it's located in.






Finally, but shot first, is a cute little night light I picked up at my favorite coffee joint.

Sorry everyone! I did invite someone to begin the next one but maybe he doesn't check the site too often; I've reached out to someone else and hope he will be able to assume the role. Next round should be up and running soon!

Sorry for not getting the next round up. I've reached out to two people but haven't heard back from either. If I don't hear back by this evening, I'll host the next one myself to get it moving.
