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.

BTW, do you know what a Rupert is in the British Army?

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.

Another special moment captured by Ken, you have a great eye for capturing beauty hidden in the otherwise mundane city scapes by using the golden and blue hours. I always enjoy your work. Congrat's on a well deserved win!

An embarrassment of riches, do the amazing city shots ever end today? I like your B&W conversion.

This works really well for me - I love it. The lack of sharpness on the little girl actually helps to convey a sense of movement, and I don't think it would have been improved - in fact, it may not have been as good - if she was rendered sharply. Nice photo!
