Lovely photo!
Yes, thanks, appreciated. I've also seen what LeRolls is doing... gorgeous. I could try to improve on the framing if I have the opportunity. One thing for sure: the camera and lens delivers !

Nicely done. Sometimes what a camera can capture is better than what you can see.
Thanks, and true. Although sometimes the reverse is more true especially while conveying size...

No thanks needed for well-earned praise. I agree about the reverse. A big waterfall done with a slow shutter speed becomes something special that you never did or could see. On the other hand a drippy fountain, the sound, the drops suspended in air, the little splashes, or a field of grass waving in the breeze, or a static subject such as the Grand Canyon or the Alps. maybe the the frozen moment in the pixels will capture some of mood, but not all of it. I saw many pictures of the Parthenon before visiting it, but it is different to be there.

So right! This captured the moment this cub challenged her mama but the sights and sounds of what happened next could only be truly experienced if you were where I was. Mama taught her a lesson she won't likely forget.......knowing raccoon cubs.......for a day or two!



Last night I got a few decent shots with the 540 flash......I got the settings right this time and the results are better than before by far. The K1 will focus in very low light, it was very dark out there. The biggest problem is that you can't see anything in the viewfinder and have to guess at composition.

"Yep, looks like a pizza down there....pepperoni?"


"There was a pizza here? ....who got the pizza and left me this dog food?"


Yep...I know you have teeth and they are plenty sharp!


Regards!

Two babies and a mama, like the pied woodpeckers. She was intrigued by the noise the pied woodpeckers did there. Normally they don't approach the house so narrow...

"so narrow"??? You talk funny FS....you aren't from Texas are you???

Thanks FS! Hardly an expert, but I did do better last night with the better settings. If it hadn't been 90F with 85% humidity I could have stayed out there a long time and would have been able to get a ton of shots.......but I was a sissy in that atmosphere and headed back in to the cool AC in five minutes.

Three's a crowd!


You got any raccoons over there FS? I can send you a couple, I have plenty! They do love pizza!
Regards!

I have been curious about the XS and K-1. Is this image cropped or FF? Sure looks good to me.
It's shot on FF mode. Unfortunately, the IQ is affected as I was behind very thick glass when taking this shot.

And yes, I think it's acceptable and reasonably good. Just try not to shift the composition (on sensor) too much.

That's a very pleasing, understated scenic.
Are you using the earlier version of the 10~20mm with removable hood, or the later version with permanently attached hood? I suspected the first version of the 10~20mm with removable hood might require less cropping when used on a K1 in FF mode.
Thanks, mine is the removable hood version and can put on 77mm filters.

I once owned the Sigma 10-20 and could never do much with it. If I could have used it as well as you did in that wonderful shot...I'd still own it!
Regards!
Thanks Rupert for your kind words.

Night shot taken with Sigma 10-20 just now...
