High Contrast B&W mode

Q7+06 @ 17mm - ISO 1600

Comparison of the the Bright color setting, the High Contrast B&W filter and a 'normal' B&W conversion.

I'd certainly consider the HC B&W mode a special effects filter rather than a normal B&W choice owing to the blown highlights.

From a recent Pentax outing here.
Used only the toy fisheye for the whole outing to get a fresh perspective of what if can do.

The fisheye may be "unique",
but it is not one of the toy lenses:

No wonder it has much better quality than the ones designated 'Toy'

Fun stuff! I miss shooting with my fish eye. Surprisingly good lens for the amount I paid for it.

I don't usually much care for obvious HDR images but I like this one. What was your process if you don't mind me asking?

I like the effect. Printed on canvas it would look like a painting.

It's fall in the year 1928 on the Fall River Line as passengers wait at the Pack Saddle Gap station for the train. Note the red ball near the top of the photo. That is a signal that the train can procede after making it's stop. Hence the term "High Ball".

Q7 + 06

While I was waiting for the doc appointment in the parking lot, I saw mistletoe growing in the trees. Some of you folks out there may have never seen it growing wild, and some may have never seen it at all except for the plastic mistletoe you see around Christmas. It's a parasitic plant that attaches itself to live trees, mistletoe is especially fond of damp, swampy areas and fruit trees. Mistletoe is used in several mythologies from different cultures from around the world. One of the more recognized myths is about Baldr from Norse mythology. Below is a copy/paste of the lore.
There are many versions of this tale, but most agree on the main points that Baldr, son of Frigg (and possibly a son of Odin) was one of the most popular gods, known as Baldr the Beautiful. But he was plagued by dreams foretelling his death and so, in an effort to reassure and protect him, his mother made everything, plant, animal or rock, living on or growing in the earth swear never to harm him. As a result he became invincible, and the other gods began to take advantage of his good nature by using him for target practice. He always survived.
But Loki, a jealous and mischievous god, realised that the mistletoe had been overlooked in the oath-taking, as it didn’t actually grow in the ground. He contrived a weapon from some mistletoe – variously described as an arrow, dart or spear. Rather than do his own dirty work he persuaded Hod, Baldr’s blind brother to strike with this weapon, ensuring that Hod took the immediate blame. Baldr died from this single wound, and all the gods mourned for him.
That Loki was a real SOB.
