Silence - close your eyes.

Now, imagine the wonderful sounds that these two acoustic instruments produce ...

high and low, clear and soft, rich of overtones ... wonderful - can you hear it?

Is that a hurdy-gurdy in the 2nd shot?

It‘s a five string acoustic bass guitar.

Getting lost in California did yield some good pictures that would not have been possible otherwise.

I have always struggled with the da21 in the flat lands of Cambridge (UK)... However, a recent trip to the Canadian Mountains reminded me just what a gem it is.

Monochrome in France...

I like black and white, and I like what Fuji and Panasonic have done with their Acros and L Monochrome film simulations respectively. I shoot in RAW+Jpeg so using digital filters means I have the best of both worlds. This particular filter was on the Pentax Q, and was highly regarded. I don't know if it made its way to other Pentax cameras, but I know it's not in my K5iis, but happily it is back in the KP. You have to take care with your metering, but the tones are wonderful - deep blacks, lovely mid-tones and bright whites. I cropped some for square format - my favourite aspect ratio. I'm in France for a week and took these this morning... A bright sunny day!

Nice shots!

Curious to know what in camera digital filter settings you've applied here then, something that existed on the Pentax Q and now KP (possibly K-1) but not the K5ii? Feel free to indulge and let us know the exact settings you had set up for your shots.

I believe it is Bold Monochrome. I'm familiar with it on the Q but hadn't realized it was on the KP until I saw this thread. So thanks Jeff for posting this. I skipped the K-3, was it in there?

The neighbor's Big Boy

Here is My Neighbor's cat laying on the steps to their 5th wheel trailer. I had to crop in 16-9 since he is a 16 pounder and very long!

I don't know if it is on the k3... I looked for it on my K5iis but could only find monochrome. I think it's a great addition to the KP. I was thinking of getting one of the Fuji or Lumix mirrorless cameras with their deep black and white options.... no need to do that now!

Thanks... I didn't do anything else except use the bold monochrome option in camera. I used spot metering where appropriate and selected the aperture I wanted. Nothing else. I now have some great B&W jpegs and also the raw files to muck around with if needs be. I specifically wanted the option to create speedy B&W images with more impact than the usual monochrome options found on most cameras. I don't want to spend ages in Lighroom/Photoshop/Nik Effects when I can get such amazing tones in-camera. Personally, I love this option but I suspect that very few people will use it, partly because it will be skipped over, and partly because people have an aversion to in-camera digital filters, and would rather spend ages doing it themselves!
