Went to photograph a skateboard competition but we got there late. Practiced on the remaining skaters. AF worked great.

What on earth was that Canon guy doing with his lens at such close quarters?

He's my buddy and we didn't know what to expect when we got there. It was very tight indeed. He eventually stopped shooting because it was too sketchy.

This photo really impressed me about the K3. The scene was very high contrast and I was able to make decent photos by pulling the highlights and the shadows. Really good dynamic range in the K3

I'm brand new to photography, and after a long time learning the principles, and shortlisting and researching cameras and lenses, I chose a K-3 with the 18-135 WR lens as my first step into a more professional world. Today was my first walkabout and I spent hours photographing this and photographing that.

I saw this thistle somebody had spray-painted, and decided to shoot it.

@135mm (202mm equivalent), f/5.6, 1/100sec, ISO 640, centre weighted metering, manual white balance.



I love how it captured the traces of a spider's web



Also, I found a disused railway, and saw this leaf laying on a track. So I attempted to isolate it with a long focal length, widest possible aperture, and spot auto-focus. Considering I've never handled anything other than a nasty old compact, I feel quite proud of myself for capturing this.

@135mm (202mm equivalent), f/5.6, 1/20th sec, ISO 100, centre weighted metering, manual white balance.
