A few from the yesterday.








Very Nice!
Last one is so detailed...hard to believe it was shot at 630mm.
Did you use a TC?

The images above are wonderful, but I'll observe, there's something about the color rendering that to my eye is different from what I've seen in K3 & K5 images. There's also a vague 3D effect, perhaps a consequence of a more nuanced tonal gradation.

You could also be perceiving the reduced DoF inherent in larger-format perspectives.

Perhaps, but if shallow DOF were the whole story, then APS-C images taken at wide apertures (f2.8, f2, f1.4) should have the same "look," and I don't think that is true.

Stuart, your work with this new camera is fantastic. I look forward to viewing each new post.

Your best friend is often the highlight of each new installment. The look, the manner in which he carries himself, he knows how to pose.

He looks like a great companion.

He also makes me think of my late girl ZoŽ. <<<<{click}


I miss her every day, even though it has been 9 years. I never thought I would have another, but seeing yours is stirring something inside me.

I only need to convince Mrs. Racer. See, I had ZoŽ before I met her. In the beginning of our relationship she admitted to being jealous of ZoŽ.

It might be easier to get her to let my buy a K-1.

Just bring home a puppy, job done!

And while she's playing with the puppy, casually suggest you could get some gorgeous pictures of the puppy if only you had a K-1!

As to my Jack, he's not as compliant as the pics make him seem.
But he gives me good practice at focusing on moving subjects and the K-1 has made it lot easier.

I thought the young lady was lovely...then I saw the little tot and she stole the show! Fantastic shots!

Such wonderful shots in this thread, and they just keep getting better! Me...I'm still stuck in Crop Mode shooting squirrels and a few birdies. I need to expand my horizon!

Maybe a good meal and a little nap will give me some new energy?


Regards!

Good point.

FA* 28-70 @ 33mm/f8, ISO1600 and 1/800 to deal with heavy wind on top of Bernal Hill, shot with a polarizer, cropped to pano then 50% desaturated. The jpeg does not do this justice though, the PNG is far more crisp. That said, the PNG is also 98MB, so there is a tradeoff :P

EDIT: PNG link for the curious: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B18UkUdI7YizN0VIbUdPS0I5bGM

I don't know where that is, I don't want to put down any place, but I don't want to live there.

Hah, it's San Francisco. It's certainly not for the faint of heart, IMO. I also missed a much nicer backdrop by about two hours, but I still wanted to see what I could pull out of the gray skies.
