Good little birdies Rupert!


You too Frederick! That first one reminds me of the local "bottle brush" flower, usually red here.

Gorgeous shots, post liked.
Only thing I could say is the crop of the last picture, I would have done it differently (maybe at the knees, otherwise tigher and less black space on the left), but it's just a minor thing, constructive comments
First two are just perfect.

All fine FS!.....but the little birdie steals the show once again. Squirrels beg you not to cook him!
That last shot is pretty interesting. What is that place?

Here is a common shot...one Jpeg and one from Raw. the K1 Jpegs are plenty acceptable...to me...though the Raw is markedly better.

Jpeg


Processed from the Raw


I asked that little birdie at the top left to get his foot out of the frame...but he wouldn't budge......dinner tonight!

Regards!

I'm not astonished, raw is definitely better.

Now on to my question of the day....
I shot my K1 at my Mom's big huge 90th Birthday Party yesterday and used a Sigma 17-70 APS-C lens in crop mode. The shots were mostly decent but lacked the pop of better optics. This is a good range and I could use a new FF lens in or around this range. Does anyone have any suggestions and any examples to point me to? I will surely appreciate the advice!
After much reviewing and searching...I think I have decided on the Pentax 28-105 for a "general walkabout" lens. Seems to have very good IQ and the price was more reasonable than I imagined too. Since I will be stealing from Mrs Rupert....less is better!

Unless anyone here has any objections?...speak up now or forever hold your comments...I am going to order it.

Regards!

Makes me feel even more sure! Thanks! I looked at a lot of pictures in the Lens Data Bank here....it performed nicely at every range and the color/ contrast was very nice .

Regards!

Town Hall in a nearby city (= has a mayor rather than just selectmen). I've been meaning to walk around Northampton to photograph a few spots, and finally roused myself to do it.
Very nice image but it is not City Hall. It is Forbes Library.
