New boy from Newport

I'm new to this forum, looks good though. I just upgraded from a Samsung GX10 to the fabulous Pentax K5. I thought the GX10 was good, it was in it's day three years ago,
but the K5 is on whole different level.
I was happy enough bumbling along with my GX10 and the two kit lenses that came with it. It was producing some good pics and some of them were doing ok in the competitions at my camera club. I had a small windfall and was able to afford the K5 and a Tamron 17- 50 2.8. the difference is chalk and cheese. I went out with my local hiking club on the weekend to Pontneddfechan Waterfalls in the Neath valley, and this is what came out of my K5, I did put a ND4 cokin on the front. I was impressed with them.

Welcome to the Forums. Congratulations on your K-5 and a good start with posting here. Was the water really that colour, or is a bit of further PP yet to be effected (looks like some HDR work already)?

Cheers
Rob

Nicely done, then. Waterfalls may be cliched to some, but they're not easy to capture well.
