POTW #545 covering period 8 - 21 April 2019
Posted By: aaacb, 6 Days Ago

Welcome to the 545th edition of Picture of the Week (POTW), covering 8-21 April 2019. Let's see what you have been shooting these past two weeks. 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.

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), but if you are interested and willing to host POTW, please send me a PM, before I contact others.

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: 390-406 smf, 407-408ramseybuckeye, 409-411 stubyles, 412-423 SD_Bob, 424-427 dave kitson 428-451 smf 452, 453, 454 StephenHampshire 455 Aslyfox, 456 StepehenHampshire, 457-466 noelcmn, 467 Aslyfox, 469-470 aaacb 471 Madmathmind, 472 Madmathmind, 473 Eva, 474 rjbrett, 475 Aslyfox, 476 - 485 noelcmn, 486 - 488 rjbrett, 489 clackers, 490 - 498 rjbrett, 499 StephenHampshire 500 smf, 501 StephenHampshire, 502-505 Eva, 506-525 Vaskebjorn, 526-538 noelcmn, 539-544 aaacb

---------- Post added 04-15-19 at 07:07 PM ----------

Please let me know via PM if you're interested to host for next week. Otherwise, I'll extend this thread to cover two weeks instead of one and update the title towards the end of this week.

Here are some of my photos from last week:
A few with the GR III






I metered the last one using the highlight-weighted option, it seems pretty good at avoiding blown highlights with stage lighting.

And a few with my k3ii, went birding for the first time this year (w/ 55-300 plm), plus one from a walk around town (w/ da 21), all three with heavy cropping

The colors in the theater shot above remind me of the screensaver on my Roku; very pleasing. Here are a couple shots taken with a K-5IIs and Tokina SZ-X 80-200mm set at its minimum focusing distance. Had never tried that before.

The Golden Medallion Tree was taken with my K5 & Super Takumar 135mm f3.5, the Common Glider Dragonfly a little Ricoh GX100 Caplio, and the Frangipani relfection and sunset reflection a Super Takumar 35mm f3.5.

Before the week runs out.


That funny fella is here








A canvasser for a political party, as we approach elections on the 8th May

Thanks all for posting. Instead of extending this one, I thought I'd start the next thread a bit early before I hit the road, so here it is POTW #546 covering period 15 - 28 April 2019 - PentaxForums.com

If anyone's willing to host the one after let me know.
