POTW #583 - Covering period 6 - 19 January 2020
Posted By: aaacb, 01-12-2020, 09:59 AM

Welcome to the 583d edition of Picture of the Week (POTW), covering periodperiod 6 - 19 January 2020. 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, 572-579 nosliwmit 580-582 aaacb

Thanks for hosting again aaacb- Just love that opening shot! A contribution from me.
Lines of the heart- Soapstone at the Curio shot -Zoo Lake


A visit to Rietfontein Municipal Nature Reserve produced this


And this- old abandoned house that is now occupied by these Hyraxes


For the Daily In challenge- Urban exploration


A visit to the Twonship of Finetown - Some 30+ km south of Johannesburg produced this-a rather evocative image of life in SA.


From today

A study in Harvey, working on testing a new K-1 and working out which of my flashes still work with remote sync after a period of letting them sit. Part of a series in f/11 1/100 lighting practice with pretty much every Pentax FF and MF lens in my collection. This one became my 'reference' to compare the rest too, taken with the DFA100 Macro. My flashes at the time are a Shanny 600FGZ on-camera, a Yongnuo 560IV as my left light, and a Yongnuo 660 as my right light.

(Who's Harvey? A mascot for an Odd Salon.)

I finally took advantage of the fog in my area (at least a small compensation for this snowless winter).

I'm traveling so I can't start a new thread from only my phone. How about we keep this one for another week, unless someone has the time to post a new thread?

1.wiew from Witch mount
2.wiew from Big Natural Bridge
3..Big Natural Bridge.The Rakov Škocjan valley is a karst valley at the northern base of the Javorniki hills which was created when the ceiling of a karst cave began sinking and collapsing. This is proven by the 42-meter Little Natural Bridge, the 37-meter Big Natural Bridge and two gorges behind them.
Photos are from prewious week taken with K-5 & F300*, K100DSuper & DA 21

Salt River FIshing

Tagged along with a friend for some fishing on the Salt River (AZ) this weekend. Well, he fished. I brought my kit and used him as a subject.

I call these "walking around" photos. The type that have no theme--just unplanned miscellaneous picture. Hope everyone had a good week.

DId everyone read 'aaacb's note that he's traveling and we are to continue this thread for another week or pick up the slack. If aaacb says it's ok I will try and follow through.and put up the new POTW.

In any event, the New Year photos from everyone (mine are OK) are outstanding. As usual, Noel's rich colors and macro work is beautiful; Big Oak and aaacb's monochrome/BW renderings are sharp and the contrasts are poignant. Cooks333's sunset landscapes have a rich shadow development off of the colors. My favorite is the silhouette of the fisherman-well done. Eva's landscape of Witch hunt with the clouds/fog rolling in the valley is really sharp (did you use a tripod for that exposure?) the depth of field is quite intense.

As for mine, meh, except for the clarity of detail in photo of my dog Howard (was testing my new Leica SL with m-mount lenses) and the block glass bokeh study (last pic)….the other ones don't hold up against this group. Hopefully, I'll take my K-5ii or my K-1 out this week and create more interesting exposures. .
