This one was taken from inside the train crossing the St-Lawrence river in Montreal. It was cropped to hide train interior lighting reflections on the window.

Thanksgiving weekend.

Just enjoying the Thanksgiving long weekend. Got up early to shot the fog lifting. I did a HDR of myself shooting with my K5 and another of my shooting buddy. I find the Q does a better job at HDR jpegs then the K5.

Big Bob The photo of the house looks great. Pentax in camera filters are so much fun.

Michaelina2, the Art Institute shot is sooo sharp for using the fisheye. It is a challenge for me to get the fisheye focused and get a sharp image. You have clearly mastered this challenge.

Glad you found something interesting about the photo. I'm a Q newbie. The FE arrived the day before my trip to Chicago following the Q, a week earlier. I let the camera do the 'capture' work, so I use "P" mode almost exclusively. Needless to say, I'm quite impressed by the little critter's output.

Anyway, I try to visualize photographs before I take them. Once I eye a possibility, I get into position and wait for the action to develop. I pre-compose and focus with help from the Q's MF Focus Assist (x4) feature. As a result, focus is pretty close at the time of capture. Next, I bring the image (RAW/DNG in this case) into LR4.2 to crop and finish it. Once the image is about as good as I can get it in LR, I use LR's 'Edit in...' feature to call up PS CS5 for clean-up using 'Content-aware' and resizing so it fits my desired output media. After that, if it looks like the developing image is going in the right direction, I further fine tune it using some NIK plug-ins for LR (Define, Vivesa2, Output Sharpening, ColorEfexPro4, as needed) then save the result to Flickr, or print it. All of this sounds fussy, but I work fast. My LR Develop to Flickr work-flow takes three to five minutes at most (many times less).

That's about it. Easy... No problem !

Cheers... M

Big Bob the colored block shot overhead is excellent, are those newspaper stands?
Like that buddy shot northislander.
Michaelina2, nice work on those shots.
enoeske, good use of the fisheye - I need to get myself one.
mamethot, giving the Q a workout I see - the spider is cool, nice color.

Fookus the 2 dogs on the beach is very nice. You should add your street work to the other thread on 'street shots with the Q' if you haven't already.

Northislander, Thanks. I agree the in camera filters are lots of fun. I have to watch I don't over due it. The HDR of your shooting buddy really pops. Good work.

Michaelina2 - Thanks for the run down on your workflow. I think you have convinced me to move from CS4 to Lightroom.

Crewl1, thanks for the kind words. The overhead is indeed a shot of a bunch of newspaper boxes.

one more, this time a b&w conversion in PS instead of in camera. I love having a fisheye. I've wanted one for a long time and the Q let me get it at an affordable price. Granted its fixed f/5.6 and manual focus, but its fun

A couple of pedestrian shots taken with the Q and 8.5mm f1.9 prime...





In both cases I was on my way home from work and would never have stopped and pulled my K-5 out of the bag. But with the Q hanging barely noticed around my neck, I could indulge my impulse to stop for a quick shot.

Great shots, especially the second one!
