Yes. we are all busy but if we have time to post we have time to reply every so often.....as you already do. It will make this a much better thread if we can show a little appreciation to others for their efforts here.

Wonderful pictures in this thread...no doubt about it! Some very fine and serious shooters...and even the "rest of us" post some interesting stuff once in a while!

I'm gonna try harder to show my appreciation....hope more will join me. I know I can count on FS & JVA....they are here from the K5IIs thread and are a couple of the "Good Guys" of Pentax Forums!

You're welcome FS! Always enjoy your work! That naughty boy came alive when the beer truck arrived that day!

Just as this youngster did when he learned the beer truck had a flat tire and would be an hour late....

Shot in Crop Mode and then cropped again in processing.....These are Jpegs....who says the K1 Jpegs are not plenty good???

Waiting for the beer truck to arrive...


"Whatcha mean they had a flat tire and will be an hour late?"


Regards!
Your posts are always great to look at Rupert although I do question my own sanity as now every squirrel I see could be a relative of Otis. There does need to be a more light-hearted approach and this is a great forum with some fantastic photographers as members

Amazingly fine shots...we all need that lens, but it isn't just the lens, you have made some nice natural compositions too! For me...I have to use Cheater Branches.

...and they probably are a relative! All you really need to know about squirrels is that they are very tricky and conniving scoundrels!

Agreed...the world is plenty serious and full of troubling events. No reason we can't lighten it up a little here!

Absolutely!!....so we need to let them know we appreciate their contributions!

...and never get too close to him after his 2nd beer.

Can't argue with that FS.....there is more to a Raw to work with, but the Jpegs suit many needs and are as good from the K1 as from any Pentax I have used before....or better even.

Raw processed version....Makes no difference to the damn squirrel, he is still angry about the beer truck!

Since all the models are either on vacation, sick, or busy I figured I go back to landscapes for a bit.
LeRolls.......Otis sends his everlasting gratitude for the few days you loaned him your lovely models, and cannot express the thrill he had shooting them! Even though he discovered his camera was out of film he will forever have the memories etched in his Big Brain.

For this once in a lifetime opportunity he thanks you by upgrading your PF membership to Site Supporter and wants to express his gratitude with his very highest award....your wonderful work here has thrilled billions of little squirrels worldwide as well as the members here that admire that wonderful work!



He would have done this earlier but his PayPal account was frozen for a few days while they investigated some of his recent purchases that seemed a little extravagant.....I think he treated your girls very nicely!

Best Regards! & we all look forward to more of your great shots.......of the girls, of course!

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.
No issues!! It was more of testing of lens and also for me to practice more on landscape.

To me, both perform extremely well...

There are some additional red streaks over the water and one small one close to the bridge on the K. Are these just due to some additional spot lights are different moments?
During the time I was taking the shots, There are lighted bump boats passing though.

It was shot with the K-1 with the Sigma 105mm EX DG Macro as I couldn't pull up the exif data I'm sure the ISO was around 400 and shutter speed was 250/sec

Well, that makes sense...a great camera and a great lens + a fully qualified shooter = a fine shot. Not easy to get the exposure just right with that color, and keep all the detail.

That is too crazy !!!
I know how you did it: you caught those birds (God knows how, though...) and anesthetize them and then you planted them on a branch so you could take your time to get such wonderful images ... right?
Cracking shots !!

Well, it is just a fact that those are difficult to shoot......I see very few that color that are that well exposed with good detail. Even some of yours are not that good...or mine, or many others....you know how hard they are to get just right.

Of course, after my couple of compliments, you do owe me some doggy shots here. I will be expecting them!

Regards!
