nice one indeed
Appreciate it! When the shot presents itself you just gotta be ready to take it. Especially down here in south Florida which seems to have little in the way of interesting subjects other than maybe pretty girls. Hmmm...there's a thought.

Actually, alligators. Gonna need at least an 06 Telephoto for those kind of shots. Otherwise I'll be photographing the inside of his stomach with the 03 Fish Eye!

You're most likely right but you have to admit that they are both probably equally as destructive!

Thanks man! I definitely prefer posting in the Q threads because the folks round these parts seem a little more generous with their thoughts and opinions. When I share anything on the K-01 thread I feel like I'm posting in a vacuum. Tough crowd those guys.
I can say the same about some people over on FredMiranda

I quite like this shot on a few different levels. First the architecture is interesting in a sort of minimalist/spartan kind of way, secondly having the subject at the end of corridor adds a lot IMO especially the body language, thirdly the lighting and shadow play is quite evocative which reminds me of older horror movies that I use to watch with my father (The Omen being an example). Simple yet effective.

This is a shot of the atrium of the North York Central Library in Toronto, taken with the fisheye. I actually got the fisheye plus the Q as a way to do wide crowd shots and a back-up to my K-5. I haven't had much chance to use it that way yet, but I am developing a appreciation for the fisheye nonetheless. It's on my Q most of the time. I recently discovered that because the lens lacks a built-in shutter, exposure time is limited to a 2-second maximum. Too bad, but I can live with that.

Aren't you willing to suffer for your art?

Nice image using the FE. There is a work around for the 2 second max time. Put Q on manual exposure 2 seconds then in shooting menu select multiple exposure 9 shot. Untick the auto ev adjustment. This will give an 18 second exposure. No idea if it would match a true 18 sec exposure but it definetly beats 2 seconds.
thanks

Sadly this coyote is no longer alive. Great taxidermist though.
