Hi from Boston.

Hello all, I shoot mostly stock theses days with various DSLR's but in the past was a P645N /P67 user so have always wondered about the Pentax Digital line...been dipping my toes with a K7 and 21mm Ltd so see what it's all about. Of course I've come here to glean any info I can.

I don't have too much to offer in exchange yet, but you can see my work at Dermot Conlan Photography

Welcome. I like your Boston 20-20 work. Well done, and it's fun that I know exactly where you're standing for each shot in the series.

I particularly like the Fort Point Channel ones (#4 and #7). Not so sure about the ones with the super-large moon.

Thanks for the welcome, moons like a lot of other effects in photography I find are a personal thing.

I guess for me the obvious non-reality of it clashes with the familiarity of the scene. For someone who doesn't recognize the skyline it might be different.

On another note: have you been on the top floor of the parking garage in the Museum of Science? Seems like an excellent place for more for this series.

The series was started to generate stock images and a lot of stock deals in non reality...I don't shoot to make art, I spent ten years doing that and made some pretty pictures. Now I shoot for other reasons. Yes that garage has beenon my list , I see it in my "idea" book from last year but maybe this part is over now.
