Going into the weekend here, I thought I would finish up the Heron stalking series with what happens when you get too close...

You get BIF! (Bird in Flight)

Eye's get a little big... hmm... what is that guy up to? He is getting closer...

Retract wings, check... It is now safe to unfasten your seat belts and move about the lake. Thanks for flying with us.

That's a great sequence. Even if the K1 is slower than a k3 for sequence shooting, it's obviously more than sufficient in this case.

That is a good sample there Arnold. I have seen conflicting reports on that lens (is yours the SuperWide or SuperWide II? I wasn't sure if the non II was available in AF...)


Some people report as you do, that it is sharp corner to corner, others say it's a flare monster and soft wide open, and I wondered if it was just the difference in model number, the whole series or peoples shooting styles.


Your pic is at F8... have you tried it in other situations where the sun is coming cross wise or closer to the element, or at f2.8 yet? Just curious, Thanks!
Eric
Yes, it is the AF Superwide 11. In this picture, f8@350 you can see aperture reflections (no hood used), but the picture is not washed out. I like this lens.

Here is one straight out camera, 1/25@2.8 hand held

@LeRolls - wow... just wow. The lighting, background and water rippling in that first shot are fantastic. Beautiful work, as always
Thank you kindly. Yeah, even I was kind of surprised how well that one came out. Of course Kelsea was also quite ecstatic as well.

Awesome Brandon! And well worth clicking through to see the larger photo on flickr too!
Eric
Thanks to both of you!

That's a very nice scenic. Lighting and color you cannot go out planning to find (and be successful).
Indeed. I actually thought I'd get skunked this evening until very late in the game as the storms that were moving through waited until the last minute to begin clearing.

Hey that's in my neck of the woods. Nice shot!
Thanks Matt. I knew I was in your territory in CB - I remember seeing several images you've posted from there. Beautiful country!

Some beautiful images here..... I am a Canon shooter using a 1DX and 5D MK III and have decided to give Pentax and the K1 a shot..... And I'm not disappointed :-)
Wow! Dramatic! Did you use HDR or were you able to get this image from the data of one shot?

You do really superb squirrel, Rupert.

Only got my K-1 few days ago, so far happy only with one shot, rest are pretty much snapshots that I just take out of excitement of owning such a great camera.
I know just how you feel

@LeRolls - I'm constantly impressed with your portrait work. Superb
Me too. We've had a couple of really good portrait/fashion guys in the last few years. Remember Benjamin Kanarek? Benjamin Kanarek – Official Website of Benjamin Kanarek Fashion Beauty and Commercial Photographer And there was that guy from Scandinavia. LeRolls is doing good stuff and I'm sure that he will do better stuff in the future. "Stuff", BTW, is a technical term. It can be applied to any skill where you can't explain exactly what it is that they do that makes it good.

I knew it would happen one day, you have gone off your rocker. But there is nothing to fear you'll be O.K.
Madness and Genius are born from the same family.

But you need to examine the reason for your failure. I think you simply chose the wrong bacon, probably the cheap rindless variety from the supermarket. (Probably past its use-by date) You must get the real quality stuff from a real butcher. And you need an experienced "wrapper" otherwise you will fail. I can help out here, I am an expert bacon wrapper. Just let me know when you need me.

Cheers
Yeah. I agree. I don't know what it's like in Texas, but when I lived in Michigan, I could not buy bacon. They had a thing they called bacon, but it was just strips of fat. They suggested "Canadian Bacon", but that wasn't edible. It was a round manufactured meat product. Toxic. Back bacon is the way to go. Green or smoked, it's personal taste. This stuff



Streaky is good too. It's better for wrapping things to keep the moisture inside. I speak with some authority as an early member of the breakfast newsgroup "alt.2eggs.sausage.beans.tomatoes.2toast.largetea.cheerslove". It breaks all the naming rules, but it was allowed to go ahead by someone with a sense of humour. It used to be a fun group, but it was hijacked. Anyway, we knew our bacon.
