Thanks I guess! The winky-smiley is making me slightly hesitant to be fully appreciative.

I do see a progression in my shots from November of last year to now.
It was (and is) a serious compliment. IMHO, you've really improved if I go by those two shots. Very concentrated and purposeful compositions with just the right amount of post processing. The winky-smiley is just how I end sentences - no sarcasm intended.

Here are some captures from a cold but sunny day at the Danube about 3 weeks ago. I really like how you can achieve quite nice bokeh with the Q's Standard Prime lens set at f/1.9!
Love #2. That is some hard-to-find bokeh for the Q!

Was stuck at the local Walmart for two hours while they were changing out my tires so I wandered over to the garden center and decided to get re-acquainted with the 01 prime.

You get a 'like', not just for some amazing photos, but for venturing into a Wal-Mart. I've got to get the 01.

Great looking shots from a neat location. I always carry a camera (My Q or Can** S100) but never shot shot flowers in a store. I will have to remember your post on my next trip to Lowes

Thanks! Walmart is literally 3 minutes from my house so it's mostly a matter of convenience over preference and yes everyone needs the 01 in their bag IMO.

Appreciate the kind words! Yeah, I don't usually shoot flowers since I feel that they've been done to death but you gotta go with what you got and I was fairly happy with the results.

Here's another shot done with the 03 in the Walmart parking lot. I always have fun with the fish eye.

Yes, I may use the 06 a lot because of it's versatility but the 01 is still my favorite. It's too bad that Pentax makes it so difficult to obtain and don't even get me started on the tripod foot for the K to Q adapter. Thanks btw!

Here's some shots of the artwork on the Montreal subway (or the metro as it's known). First off are a couple from a large stained class piece at Place des Arts metro station. As the name implies, it located amidst some of the major performance venues in Montreal.










This particular piece shows various Canadian and Quebecois composers. Lenses used: 02 zoom for first two, 03 fisheye for the third.

Here is another one at Berri-UQAM metro station, also stained glass. It depicts some of the people who founded Montreal.




Although I lived in Montreal for several years, I never paid much mind to the art on the subways until I moved away. C'est la vie, n'est pas? The type of artwork you see on the metro varies in style, subject matter and how it is integrated into the station. Sometimes, it is an obvious piece of art, other times, it is more subtle, like an artistic flourish. It is said to be one of the foremost subway systems with respect to the amount of art and also the quality and how well integrated the art is.

If you want to know more, here is very nicely done website:
