Cross posted from post your photos.

I went to the parking lot off Opeongo Road in Algonquin Park to see how the birds were doing..... K-3, HD DA 1.4 TC and DA*60-250.



The ever present Chickadees







And the reason we go to the park, checking out the Gray Jays.







And the furry scavengers....

Nice photo. However, my pianist wife would cringe at seeing the left wrist bent the way it is.

Put it to a tough test...that moment between night and day. Tiny lightroom exposure grad to check detail in bottom right corner. Need to learn about HDR more, this might have been a good instance to use it...

No need for HDR. It is beautiful as it is.

Kart Racing

Just came back from a kart racing with some colleagues and i did a few pics. Quite difficult light and i had only my 18-135WR on my K-3. They were all shot without flash, they turned out not as bad as expected. There is always way for improvement, altough the ISO3200 turned out quite noisy...

Gorgeous shot. What, are you competing with Rondec now? I thought he was King of the DA*16-50 lens. LOL

FA 31 @ 6.3 with Marumi CPL. This is a killer combo IMHO. (Cross posted from FA Limited Pics)

Thanks. I don't know. They are very different lenses. I find the 16-50 is maybe a little sharper at f4 and f5.6, but it isn't nearly as flare resistant.
