Posted By: noelcmn, 12-07-2017, 01:10 AM

Welcome to Picture of the Week (POTW) for the period 29 November - 14 December 2017. Itís 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


ē consider including in your post any special circumstances or tips on technique or equipment which might be interesting to others.

ē 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.

I've got black and whites this week, processed in XnView while I learn how to drive Topaz. The first 4 of these were taken with the Industar 61 50mm f2.8, and the last with the Promura 200mm f4.5 on an 11mm extension tube. For the Gazania I used a light yellow Mir contrast filter, the Azalea an 11mm ext tube and no filter, the Geranium a red Mir contrast filter, and the Ixora a Mir orange filter. Each of the Industar shots was taken at about f11 or 16, the Azalea using a tripod. The Promura was on about f5.6 - both lenses are presets. There's little of the fine tonal gradation I've seen in other black and white or monochrome photos across the forum, but these do have a certain rough hewn qaulity I'm fond of.

These images were captured through the glass of a sliding door with a handheld K-S2 and smc Pentax-F 1:4.5-5.6 100-300mm.
I know they're not great, but I had fun.

Wow you guys, thanks for contributing to the weeks POTW.
rjbrett- Lovely B/W, particularly like no 4. You seem to have pretty good control of the whites there. I struggle with it.
aaacb- Wonderful shot of that corrugations and window. Good optical illusion shot.
Smf- Lucky devil . have only seen woodpeckers a few times in all my years of photography. And usually not good enough to post on PF. Such good timing getting that birdie in on the first pic.

Keep them coming Pentaxians

Sorry, been too busy job-hunting to play with camera. Maybe next week.
