Picture of the Week (POTW) # 472 - 11 September to 29 September 2017
Posted By: MadMathMind, 09-21-2017, 08:34 PM

Welcome to Picture of the Week (POTW) for the week ending 29 September 2017. Sorry this got off late; I reached out to two people to host but it seems both were a bit busy and unable to respond, so I just decided to make it myself so we could get it moving.

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 472 Madmathmind

Mine were taken with the K-1. 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. These technically weren't edited during hte contest period but I don't have anything done in it and need something to post for starters.

Focal Length 130.0mm (35mm equivalent: 195mm), Exposure Time 1/2000s (0.0005), Aperture F/2.8, ISO Equivalent 200

burst shutter and panning with the action of the play

[ sorry, I'm not good at math or following instructions when telling a complete story 8 photos instead of 6, isn't that the " new math " ? ]

Fall in NE Ohio

These photos were taken in Mill Creek Park located in Youngstown, Ohio. I used my Pentax KP with my new Pentax 55-300mm lens. Thanks for viewing! Pat

Fall colors and insect swarm

I saw this swarm over our front lawn (on the North side of the house) through the kitchen window, and just had to try to capture it. Shot through a double pane window near dusk. The house across the street has some fall colored shrubs. Four lanes, two sidewalks, and 40 feet more away to the house across the street.

K-3 TAV 1/500@2.8 -- ISO ended up at 5,000. Manual focus and many tries to get some of the bugs in focus. This was the best of a couple of dozen tries. The insects are some kind of small winged insect, about 2 cm wing span.
