Pentax DSLR rookie


I discovered this forum whilst searching for a solution regarding an e-dial issue on my brand new K-r.
I am a keen amateur photographer, having began with a Miranda 35mm SLR and zoom lens waaaaay back in 1985 when I was 14! I hail from England but have lived in Jamaica,W.I. for the last 5 years. This is my first DSLR, having previously owned a Pentax Optio S4i. My interest lies with many genres of photography but I am particularly interested in fine art photography.

Apologies for the resume - If you have any questions or can assist with any of mine, I would be grateful

(P.S: I did fix my e-dial with the help of your forum members - saved me a whole heap of delivery, insurance and customs costs)

Welcome, chong71, from a fellow newcomer to this forum.

As I am now based in China, I was intrigued by your name, but now I am even more intrigued by the fact that you are in Jamaica, because I lived there for a while in 1991. You will have plenty of beautiful images to share with us soon, I think. One of my best memories is of walking down a country lane at midnight being able to see everything with near-perfect clarity even though the only source of illumination was starlight - the air was so clear and there was zero light pollution.
