POTW #574 - Covering period 4th - 17th November 2019
Posted By: nosliwmit, 11-11-2019, 02:56 AM

Welcome to the 574th edition of Picture of the Week (POTW), covering 4th - 17th November 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, 407-408 ramseybuckeye, 409-411 stubyles, 412-423SD_Bob, 424-427 dave kitson, 428-451 smf, 452-454 StephenHampshire, 455 Aslyfox, 456 StephenHampshire, 457-466 noelcmn, 467 Aslyfox, 469-470 aaacb, 471-472 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, 539-547 aaacb, 548-563 Eva, 564-571 noelcmn, 572-573 nosliwmit

Most of my POTW submissions are from walks around Hong Kong, and this week is no different! All of these were taken with my K-1 Mark II and my 43mm F1.9 Ltd., which has become my walk-around lens.

Peeling Citrus in Yau Ma Tei (they dry the peels and sell them by the bazillion - not sure what one does with them). I had the late afternoon sun in my face on this one but I like it:

From a walk in the forest yesterday.
It was pleasant wheather, but a bit nippy.

nosliwmit, I love all your photos of Hong Kong, and it is still on the bucket list ( and probably remain there until ...) so I may never forgive you for making me envious . aaacb, love that in-your-face point of view of that car. I agree with Vaskebjorn about your photos Bigoak! Beautiful.
And a real beauty with that 2nd shot Vaskebjorn, so nice.

For November, winter and the sudden lack of color, here's some fun:
1). Turn on the flash--leave it on.
2). 2% color saturation (a 24 bit file, not grayscale)
3). Enjoy sparkle

Well, if you make it here in the next two years let me know! I'd be happy to show you around. Of course now is definitely not the time to visit. What a mess...

Very nice photos Eva. I really like the second squirrel. I also like the dog sitting on the bench, it ‘s a nice fun detail.
