New Pentax user - 15mm ltd

Hey everyone! New to the forums and just recently bought my first Pentax k-3 (previous canon user). I love this camera + 15mm ltd. It does indeed control my mind!

Lovely set. I especially like 1,2,3, and 4. The texture of the dead fall wood is very compelling.

Driftwood is just an interesting series of textures and shapes. Often, if you don't get a good picture, it's because you didn't bother to find the right angle.

Yes, point of view is everything on these shots. I like getting down to subject level to remove the overhead view, which I admit doing when lazy. or when my hip locks up!

You do a very nice perspective on thistle shots. Thanks for sharing. Now I again want to get down and dirty!

It's a great little lens. Plenty sharp with nice overall look. Just don't drop it on the floor like I did!

Been having fun with the DA* 60-250mm (at the expense of my D800 system which is missing the love these days).

Here's one:

Rondec, on your last shot (into the sun) you must have had a special reason to set ISO to 200. Care to educate us? Thx.

It was shot as a multiple exposure series and for some reason or other, my K3 seems to default to iso 200 when I do that, unless I manually turn the iso down to 100. So, no particular reason.
