Week 110 - Photo of the Week 11 April to 25 April
Posted By: Nomad, 04-17-2010, 08:11 AM

Welcome to 110th edition of the Pentax Forum's Picture of the Week!
This edition covers photos taken between April 11th thru April 25th.

Thanks to Tom (tpeace) for hosting last week and giving me the nod for my first effort at hosting POTW. I look forward to seeing a lot of great images from everyone this week as I really gain inspiration by seeing what others here are shooting and posting.
POTW is a great way to see what Pentax owners are doing with their cameras as they post whatever pictures they took during the active week. Check in here to see a nice variety of great photos.

So grab your camera, get out there and shoot! Then come on back here and share your shots with your fellow Pentaxians!

Feel free to post your photos from this coming week, as well as this last week!

Again same rules and really other than time frames, there are no rules:

1) No theme, just post your favorite pix.

2) Let's keep it to about 4-6 images per post just so the thread doesn't get too big each week.

3) Any Pentax camera or Samsung DSLR is fine, whether it's film, P&S, or DSLR

4) Date: Sunday 11 April 2010 to Sunday 25 April 2010. Enter anything you shot last week or during this current week until the thread closes. Old shots with a new look from post processing during the open time period are also welcome.

5) The current host will appoint the new host as an invitation via PM. If possible, the new thread will be linked to the previous one and the new thread will start between 12:00EST and 5PM EST on the Sunday. If the thread doesn't start, please contact Peter Zack, Moderator via PM.

I have one more I'd like to post here this week. I cross-posted this in Critique but have since made it a black and white.

Sorry for being so absent this week, especially on the week that is my turn to host!!

Work has been nuts this week but there are some really good images here all. Too many to offer my compliments on all but I will say that the surfing pics really catch my eye and make me start thinking about a housing!!

The photos this week are inspiring and a joy to look through. I've been tied up with editing a couple thousand bike race photos and couldn't spend a lot of time on the forum, but I got out to hike and shoot pix on a wet day. Project 52: Liquids gave me inspiration to shoot these photos...

From my mother's garden. The flowers are about the size of a dime. I've also posted this in the Post your photos section.

Thanks Tamia. I get a lot of bird shots and feel stupid not knowing what they are.

Seems like this thread is a bit too calm ^^ I wont have no pictures to contribute with atm.. but I'll throw some comments.

Rparmar, like the theme and I especially like the 3d one (surf spray), well captured and nice light! I like how the surface of the rocks are almost melting together with the water.. but the vertical rocks are lighting up You should (as Rense already pointed out) add it to the P52!

tpeace, great ones! The 2nd is powerful, lightning is great.

Jezza, lovely one! That's something I'd fit in a frame

photolady, nice shot thou maybe (for black'n white that is) a different angle of light would've added some more contrast in the center of the flower? Not that it's not beautiful already!

Nice wet ones Tamia. I gotta get out in the nature a bit more, havnt had time lately.

Jeff, that's a great capture! I really like the use of the bokeh

Some other critters, shot this morning with the Vivitar 55/2.8 macro. They must have been less than 10cm from the front of the lens.....
