Posted By: noelcmn, 11-15-2017, 03:39 AM

Welcome to Picture of the Week (POTW) for the period 8 - 22 November 2017. It’s my pleasure to host this week and you are invited to contribute to this wonderful diverse thread.

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

feel free to start immediately, if not sooner


• 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.

Slow week for POTW!

My wife and I went for a very rainy hike last weekend on Lantau Island. This photo shows part of a bridge/tunnel project being built to connect Hong Kong with Macau and Zhuhai. What isn't visible at the left edge of this photo is the man-made island where the bridge segment ends and a tunnel begins to pass below a shipping channel. The tunnel pops back up on another man-made island and another bridge segment continues on to Macau. The project has been delayed a few times and may open sometime in 2018.

Gee that picture's something else nosliwmit - I keep going back to gaze in admiration for yet another minute !.

I've got flowers and flies. The rose was taken with a freshly arrived Promura 35mm f3.5 preset with an 11mm extension tube at f16 with the K5 on a tripod. The fly photographs were all taken with the Super-Multi-Coated Macro-Takumar 50mm f4 at f16 on an extension tube, and the daisies the Promura 200mm f4.5 preset on an 11mm extension tube (don't ask) at f11 or so. I think the small red flies were freshly hatched, and with time their shell hardens to a more iridescent browny-maroon.

I visited a small town Krško. I did not have much time but interesting was the offer of bicycle rental, covered parking for bicycles and the railway station.

I like the window box Eva, and those trains almost glow in the evening light. We have those rental bikes here in Brisbane, and I believe they are showing up in a number of other places too, greening urban environments and providing exercise.
