Penn Station- Morning Light

I caught this image while walking through Penn station, NYC. This is from inside the station, looking up to the street. Image captured with my Q-10, an excellent city street scene camera.

Taken yesterday. I recently bought a samyang 135mm 2.0 prime. For astro mainly. But until the moon is out of the way, I've been having fun around the yard. These little spiders are common right now, tiny and almost see thru. 3ft away. First time I've actually taken a really clear photo of one.

1/400, f4.0, iso 2000. (TAV mode) Cropped, no extra edit. K70.

Superb shot. Really nice the way the bird perched on the translucent ice also.

That's a good shot - heartbreaking too. I wonder if he was mad or just looking in your direction. The 400mm gives a bit of distance.

I love the slight flare on the image. Really nicely shot and cropped.

This image of Price Lake taken last week captures some of the color found along the Blue Ridge Parkway in the fall.

K-10 with kit lens 18-55mm

I had just received my K-10 which was my first Pentax in 2009.
We took a trip to West Virginia and was camping at an RV spot and the guests next to us told us about this amazing place to take photos.
The place was Babcock State Park, which was about 80 miles from us, but we decided to make the trip to check it out.
When we arrived, it was early afternoon and there was Glade Creek Grist Mill, and the stream was running at a good pace due to recent rains.
I took out the camera and a tripod and set up to take photos of this amazing place with the water fall in the foreground and the grist mill in the background.
This photo has inspired me to continue taking photos of various subjects and with a series of Pentax Cameras. I now own a K-3ii camera and several lenses both Pentax and Sigma.
This photo won 2nd place in one of the monthly contests on this site.
I have been taking snap shots for a long time, but finally realized there is more to photography than snap shots. This realization caused me to become a member of Shreveport Photographic Society and my education in Phtography really began with this membership.

I know I'm posting this past the end date. I wouldn't consider this an excellent image by any means, but it's the first picture I took after trimming the extended aperture lever guard on a Vivitar 80-200 zoom lens so I could mount it on my K20.

The photo was taken through the glass of an impact rated sliding glass door at 100 mm focal length.

F2.8, 1000th ,ISO 250 after 48 hour de-yellowing of newly arrived lens.

Stunning image. Those Takumar colors are incredible.
Makes me want to go dust off (& de-yellow) mine.
