Moving on from camera tests

After 34 pages, I think we all get the idea that this camera does a good job of all sorts of things. So, two pictures from me that don't test anything.

Oh boy, now you are really teasing us! But again, great action capture!

But is our hero about to lose his nut?

Both great shots Noel (I checked them out in Flckr). I think I like the first shot the most.

That's the main thing for most of us - to enjoy taking photos! Is it a Grey Heron or a GBH?

Astrotracing in the Badlands

When I was in Badlands National Park, I was only lucky enough to have clear skies for one of my five nights. Glad I went out and made the most of it! This was shot at the Pinnacles Overlook at 0131 MDT. I used the K-3 iii's astrotracer mode to shoot a 110 second exposure at ISO 1600 and f/2.8 using the Pentax HD DA* 1118mm lens at 11mm. This is cropped slightly. If you pixel peep too closely, you'll see that the astrotracer is giving a bit of star trails on the edges, even though there are spot stars in the core. Given that I cropped in for the final image, I probably should have shot at 16mm where astrotracer is known to do better. (I blended the foreground from another shot with astrotracer off.)

Big shout out to Erik Kuna of KelbyOne for both the Outdoor Photography Conference and KelbyOne classes. I used the low level light painting Erik taught at the Outdoor Photography Conference to light the foreground and the postprocessing followed Erik's class on postprocessing Milky Way images.

You can't see me...



A Antechinus.... the males tend to not live much past 1 year.... as they expend so much energy during the spring mating season!

SOOC with only a copyright signature added in DXO PhotoLab 4.3

This gentleman was gracious enough to allow a photograph. I decided to post SOOC JPEGs for now until DXO gets finished with their Pentax K-3 Mk III profiles. Try as I may I have not found any readily available RAW processing software that can compete with the straight out of camera images. Check the detail in this image, there is a damsel fly flying by in the upper left of the frame in front of the cloud formation. Now that is some great detail!!

Cool! It's probably a Yellow-footed Antechinus I think? I used to see Antechinus in the rainforest at Mount Glorious near Brisbane. One time, an Antechinus was on the side of a tree when he saw me, and ran around the other side of the tree trunk, then stopped as if to say "What? You're still there!". As you say, the males generally only live until the next mating season, because they spend the mating season searching for females, fighting other males and mating (40 minutes at a time) and stop eating. Their immune system breaks down, they sicken and die, so no males until the next generation grows up. The females carry on alone. I once camped at Forest Top on the NSW/Queensland border during Antechinus mating season. It was hard to sleep with them scurrying around through the leaf litter all night!
