A little thief

He really stole half my sandwich, while I was changing lens.

And the look on his face shows he's proud of it! Nice shot.

That's why you use an 18-135 or 18-250. Fewer stolen lunches.

A few long exposures from my home town of Dunfermline, Scotland. This is Dunfermline Abbey, an extremely significant historical site and burial place of King Robert the Bruce.
Such a beautiful structure. Very nice set.

and two 100% crops for detail...

I'm awed by so many of these pictures, they are just awesome. This thread has been fun to go through. After looking through them I decided that I wouldn't post here - I'm way too intimidated. But then I thought that there are those who are considering the camera who might be more like me - just average picture-takers. So here's a few that I've taken while just walking around in the past couple of weeks, since I got the camera. I'm still trying to sort out what processing I want to do, I haven't gotten settings quite the way I want them.

A before work labor strike brought out the press (taken after first light, but well before sunrise):



I sure wouldn't want to have to carry that camera!

Acorn woodpecker:



I don't do much birding, but wanted to try the K3 with the DA*300 and 1.7AFA (this is hand-held). They all seem to work reasonably well together. Couldn't believe how quick it is on continuous shooting - I could fill up a memory card very, very quickly if I wasn't careful.

Lily:



I really need to get a camera plate for the QR clamp on my tripod - I didn't think either the K20 or K5's L-brackets fit the K3 well enough to use. At the moment I'm hand-holding close-ups and macros and getting mixed results because of that. I ran into dof problems with the lily - this is two frames stacked in CS6 - but I thought it came out reasonably well.

Before Practice:



Another walk before work - preparing the field before football practice. This is a stitched panorama, stitched in CS6.

These next pictures are for all of you that live further north and east of me, who are suffering in the cold and snow. I want you to see how beautiful the weather is in sunny, bright, warm Southern California. Just to make you jealous of our good fortune out here.

Last night I received the DA*16-50 that I ordered over Black Friday weekend. The picture below is one of my first photos in daylight. I really like this lens, though it needed adjustment on the K3. I'm not positive I've got it set right, will play with it more tomorrow. One of the tasks I had planned for today was to take off the netting I put around my grapevine and trim it back. I decided that I would wait a day before attempting the task:



A few hours later my front yard looked like this:



The sun came out and tried to melt a little of that funny white stuff. It didn't do a very good job:



Yes, these pictures were really taken in Southern California.
