My playing around with my two favorite pets trying not to use the flash with low light and understand the settings on the camera.

Some that have ended up in the recent POTW threads. I set up an Oak log for a bird feeder, most of the regular visitors will let me get really close, these are with a Makinon 135mm at around 12-14 feet.

The beauty of the Pentax K30 and K50 is it's ability to recover a photo. I hope you don't mind that I ran this trough a very simple curves adj.

Very true. In fact, I typically set my to underexpose knowing how much I can recover if necessary. Often times I feel like the slight underexposure is more like what I'm looking for but I know that I can dial up the exposure in post if necessary and still have a solid photo.

You have the start of some good captures there soju, but they need some PP work! The purple fringing is out of control!

I just bought a old-school manual Auto Chinon 50mm f/1.9 on Ebay for $4. Here are a few test shots:

Thanks for the feedback..I will redo.I am using the 55-300mm kit for the eagle shots.having a bit of struggle with it.
I am not so great in PP as I so far really do not understand much of it.Right now i use picasa,and coral paint shop pro x6.
I was just so happy to capture this shot almost focused and i see I did go over board in PP.. I can only get better by your feedback..Thanks again :-)

I actually took several shots of the tree, each with slightly different settings. Processed and reduced in size in Lightroom 5. The lights are purple and blue, but unless I selected "daylight" balanced, the purple lights all but disappeared. Not meant as a great shot, but I was really surprised that I didn't have to combine 2 shots - one with a good tree, and the other with a good fire. Camera seems to like ISO of 3200 - defaults to it a lot. Or maybe I just spend a lot of my life in the dark.

Excellent composure, and proof that the most critical aspect of the photographic process occurs approximately 1/4 inch behind the viewfinder
