POTW #578 - Covering period 2nd December - 15th December 2019
Posted By: nosliwmit, 12-09-2019, 03:15 AM

Welcome to the 578th edition of Picture of the Week (POTW), covering 2nd December - 15th December 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, 412-423 SD_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, 572-577 nosliwmit

Hi all. I'll be late posting this week since I didn't get out at all over the weekend and have a busy week ahead of me. But don't let that stop you!

Massacre Falls, AZ

Got out for a hike to Massacre Falls in the Superstition mountains this weekend. First time in the Supes and the scenery was impressive. I only took my D-FA* 50mm with me to push myself to start using it more for landscape work (I sometimes get lazy and default to the 15mm). Outside of portraits, this was my first "wow" moment with the K1+50mm combo. The first two shots below are wide open and the lighting for the waterfall shot was brutal. To be able to dig out all the shadow detail, keep the sharpness and get the shallow depth of field I was going for in both images was pretty exciting. Definitely encourages me to break out the 50mm more often for landscapes and nature shots on future hikes!

Very nice POTW this week. Thanks to all who posted (so far)! I went out with a Photo Meetup gang today to shoot macro. We also visited the aviary in Hong Kong Park, always a favorite. Here are some of mine:



This one's a little bit cooked...


My favorite of the day (sometimes I really like the ring flash):
