This was a really hard choice! I just recently switched back to Pentax from the 5dii. I've been shooting like crazy for the last month but I still only have a small gallery of 2014 images to choose from(I got my camera on Black Friday). This one is from the last Saturday of 2014. You start your hike in the dark and come up to a rock bald that has great views of Virginia. There were a couple guys up there as well, and one of them came up onto the rock and stood there long enough for me to compose a shot with him. I gotta say the shadow recovery on the k3 is stellar. I just overexpose the sky a little knowing I can pull it back down, and then, where the camera really excels is when you boost the shadows! Looking forward to shooting with this thing in 2015!
