Picture of the Week (POTW) # 484- Period covering 13-27 December 2017
Posted By: noelcmn, 12-20-2017, 11:28 PM

Welcome to Picture of the Week (POTW) for the period 13 December - 27 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.

Thanks to Noel for hosting and for starting this thread with such admirable images!

These two images of the same red squirrel were captured through glass of a sliding door with handheld Pentax K-S2 and smc Pentax-F 1:4.5-5.6 100-300mm. They were processed in Lightroom 4 and in the Nik Collection's Viveza 2 and Dfine 2. (Cross-posted from the Got Squirrel Shots? thread)

Mynah family having a dust bath together. Promura 200mm f4.5 preset @ f8 - it might have been higher if, in my excitement, I'd stopped to look at the value at which I'd had the aperture set previously...

Nice critters and winter scenes!

I went to the 10,000 Buddhas temple in Sha Tin, New Territories yesterday. Lots of almost-life-size Buddhas on the way up and hundreds, if not thousands, of little ones inside the temple. Monkeys on the grounds that are rumored to steal your stuff if you're not careful...

All taken with my K-5. The temple with a smc DA-15, monkey with smc DA-70 and the Buddhas with HD DA 16-85.
