Whole story to go along with this shot but suffice to say I was very productive today photography wise and had lots of cool shots but this is definitely one of my favorites of the day. More shots will be forthcoming.
I like the luminescence of the light reflections.

Seems like a cool spot to do some long exposure work at night or maybe a time lapse.

First chance at trying my new K-01.
Yosemite NP. Lens: Sigma 24 F2.8 AF II.
Lucky me to live so close to Yosemite National Park that I can easily take day trips.
This is my first non P&S digital camera...

Beautiful photo sfbaypentax!

We got a little snow here in the St Louis, MO area last night, so this morning I grabbed the 01 and 40XS and went for a ride.

Great shots Bob! People always rag on the 40mm XS but I think it's a great performer.

Can't say I'm crazy about the cropping, parts of her hair being chopped off and being so close in on the subject. I do like the angelic effect though.

One off the new coach, Hesterine de Reus for the new women soccerteam PSV/FCE.

I hope it's not to big, but to show how well the K-01 is for portraits with the DA*55mm:
Good that someone liked this, I forgot about this one. Just made a print on A3 paper and it is great. Going to hang it on my upcoming exhibition:!/fotoexpositieBeNeLeague

The coach has left the team to become teamcoach for the national womens team in Australia!

Yes! Now that is what HDR should be all about (whether it is done in-camera or during post processing). This is the first time I've knowingly seen HDR being used to fix the highlights and/or shadows in a scene instead of using it to create impressionist art. Image correction is the only reason I would use HDR.

It's disappointing that the K-01 can only produce JPEGs in in-camera HDR mode; nonetheless, I would probably still use it occasionally. Most of the time I would probably do exposure bracketing and then do my HDR editing during post processing. My only question is, would it still be easy to get a normal (meaning non-impressionist) image that way, or is there something about doing HDR during post processing that intensifies the colors and makes the lighting look unnatural?

Yes, I know that tone mapping also has a lot (or everything?) to do with the intense colors and unnatural lighting, but I did a five-bracket exposure set (I don't know how else to write that) with my ancient point-and-shoot last year and ran it through a free, but highly rated, HDR editor (HDRtist), and the colors came out ever so slightly more intense than usual, so it made me wonder.

P.S. I wish my Epson 4990 scanner could scan in HDR -- or multi-pass -- mode and produce RAW files, although I guess I could rescan an image several times with different settings each time and just work with TIFF files; that would probably make a mess, though.
I found hdr fun to use during city twilight over the river..
