K-1 Macro

I'm enjoying my Tamron 90 mm macro with the K-1.

Love those FS!In particular the little love birdies.......too bad those are in Crop Mode where none of the "FF elites" here will view them. The last one was in FF....superb....maybe they will view it?
Thanks again for the numbering.....it keeps me from getting all confused!

Just a little fun JV....like old times over in the K5IIs thread. Not many fun lovers here in this thread, they are all deadly serious FF Pros and have little interest in anything other than "dragging and dropping" their "terrific masterpieces".
...but, glad you got a smile, some of us do need a little fun and a smile once in a while!

If life is all about dragging and dropping a photo in a thread someplace, it can't be much of a life...can it?

Best Regards!

I know you didn't ask, but I like the results of the Pentax better than the Zeiss. They are very close. I just like the colors and range of that old, ancient K lens better. Has a bit more "pop" to it.
I think I agree as well.

Sunset walk the other evening - All from the D-FA 15-30, except for the fourth (DFA 24-70mm). Handheld (I am the laziest and wouldn't take the tripod out!).











Both performed great and I am slowly getting used to the size and weight!

Edit: those asking for the location, these are taken at Salford Quays in Greater Manchester, UK. Really a great place for a few pics in the evening! I'll share some more of this location

By the way - Thanks to Adam for agreeing with my proposal for a lens club for DFA 15-30, I hope to see you all there too!

Most of my life is actually composed of stuff outside of the forums. I have four kids between 15 months and 9 and a half and between them and work, I don't have a bunch of time to sit on threads. Posting a couple of photos in the morning before my family arises is about the sum total of it. I try to help out here and there and I do enjoy photography -- its a lot of fun for me -- but I hope it doesn't discourage others if I just hit like on a photo or two before going off to doing the "really important" parts of my life.

I understand your business...and doubt there is a single soul here that cannot legitimately claim to be far too busy to interact when they "drag & drop". I could spend an hour typing about my busy schedule......but am too busy to do it......know what I mean?

My view is that if a person wants to participate they need to at least contribute a few words about the posts of others. No one posts in a vacuum. People want to know that their work has some value...whether or not it does, they want to know they are not alone and not shooting in vain.
It used to be called "common courtesy" but nowadays seems to be a lost virtue on many threads here...and across the internet.

I can best describe my personal feelings...and did....here, in the header of this thread:

https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/132-pentaxian-lounge/301157-ugly-posters-...post-here.html

If I am offensive in my post, then I am offensive to the Ugly Posters that are too important to give any thought or precious moments of their time to others.

Hitting the "Like" button is easy and although I too do it, it is a cop-out to replace posting a few words posted in a thread on the work of others.

If a person has no time for others, but enough time to post their own work and run...the Ugly Poster Thread is open for their use and I highly recommend it...in fact use it fairly often myself.

Further......Rondec, this post was in no way directed solely at you or your comments. I consider you one of the "good guys" here at PF and a valuable contributor. It was just an opportunity for me to post my views on what I think could make us all better members, myself included. None of us are perfect in this regard, but all of us can be better if we try a little harder.

Best Regards!

...and for us it no doubt will stay fun! After all, any monkey can drag & drop a few pictures without comment....heck, even a half-wit squirrel can be easily trained to do that!

#3 stole the show on that set FS......little squirrels are lined up outside my office windows admiring a FF shot of one of their handsome cousins...and sending you their gratitude for shooting and posting!

You know this guy....he was too lazy to come take a peek at your wonderful shots.....



Regards!
