POTW #627 - February 21 to March 7, 2021
Posted By: aaacb, 02-26-2021, 08:33 PM

Welcome to the 627th edition of Pictures of the Week (POTW), covering the period February 21 to March 7, 2021. Let's see what you have been shooting.

POTW is a great spot to show off six or fewer shots you take or are editing within the thread's date range.
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.

Thanks very much to all previous hosts and to people who have posted images!

Nice start. Very good seascape shots, a theme of my taste. I'll showcase some of mine. Sea is a lover. Full manual here, K-70 with FD 50/f1.8 and FD 70-210/f4... Processed in ACR, low resolution, but you get the point. On a bright , sunny day, a long walk offered some good shot opportunities. I've been playing with manual lenses for the last months and I love it, but it's time I get my kit lens on, only to go wide again.

I enjoyed the panorama. Very giving zoomed in. I love the ground curve contradicted by the trees.

Thanks Michail. thanks for your kind comments. Although not the most popular lens the HD 18-50 really isn't too bad at all.

Thanks for starting the POTW this week aaacb!

Here are a few from me (the first two were taken with my FA 43mm Ltd and the rest with my DA*300 (and all with my K-1 Mk II)):

The Central Ferry Pier in Hong Kong:


The famous Jumbo Seafood Restaurant in Aberdeen Harbour, Hong Kong (you may have seen it burn down in the movie Noble House; it did actually burn in 1971, killing a number of people, but that was before it opened):


A freighter near Aberdeen. The first time I saw one of these I thought it was sinking:


Hong Kong from Victoria Harbour:


Star Ferry in Hong Kong:
