Welcome to the 552 edition of Picture of the Week (POTW), covering 3 Jun-16 June 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.

Thanks for starting us off again Eva!

This past weekend was the big weekend for dragon-boating in Hong Kong. Teams from all over the world participated and it looked like a good time was had by all. I am lucky enough to live within walking distance of one of the race venues so I watched a few races yesterday morning before it got too hot and I had to retire to the pool.

Thanks to Eva for hosting again.

The images were captured in Midland, Michigan with SMCPentax-F 1:4.5-5.6 100-300mm on handheld Pentax K-S2. (I would like to post a few more images of the Great egret, but I should get to bed.)

Best wishes!

Thanks for hosting Eva. I like that opening shot, shouts happiness! And like No 3 especially nosliwmit, and the 2nd one from aaacb is just fantastic! Merv-O, fantastic shots there too, like that crowd shot. and also the horses. May be worth exploring a crop on the horses. Smf, I agree with Eva, bring them on! Delicious bokeh on that 1st shot!
Before the week runs away with me, I'd better post, as I am headed for a super busy weekend. I had my 170-500mm lens repaired, and though it is still not fixed (no focus on infinity) it is much better than it was, and seems much sharper. I took it for a spin today. I shall need it for my upcoming holiday in Port Elizabeth, which will include a few days in Addo Elephant National Park. These are from today's test run






And from the other day- shot with the 10-20mm Sigma Lens that WPRESTO so kindly gave me. Beneath the rotating washing line, camera on the floor on 12 sec self-timer.


This one from Sunday, shot for another project


This from the first batch, after I got the Sigma 170-500mm lens back on Saturday. That was when I noticed a problem- not showing the f/stop on the camera and no inifinity. I took it back on Monday and got it back today.


And some heavy PP to get this effect.

In one of these images, a red-winged blackbird has confronted the egret. Perhaps the blackbird was protecting a nest. In that image, the egret has something in its beak. I think it is a fish.
The images were captured in Midland, Michigan with SMCPentax-F 1:4.5-5.6 100-300mm on handheld Pentax K-S2.
Thanks very much to those who wrote that they would like to see additional images.

" Stretch ": Out at 2nd, Cubs vs. Rockies June 10, 2019

[ first time participant in this challenge series ]

" Stretch "

Out at 2nd, Cubs vs. Rockies June 10, 2019
Lens: HD PENTAX-DA 55-300mm F4.5-6.3 ED PLM WR RE Camera: K 3 Photo Location: Coors Field, Denver CO ISO: 1000 Shutter Speed: 1/800s Aperture: F8

ball tossed by Short Stop [ barely visible lower right first photo ]

called out

call challenged

was foot off the bag ?

call confirmed

used that lens because Rockies require lens to be no more than 6 inches. I locked down lens to shortest length for inspection and no problem. I recommend photographers enter via Gate E since if your equipment does not comply with rules the only thing you can do is either store it in your vehicle or there is a tent at Gate E where you can " check " the item for pick up after the game.
