Hi from Staffordshire!

Hi all!

I'm Chris from Staffs, UK.

I've moved to Pentax from Nikon via Fuji on the promise of the K-1 being more suited for my architectural photography (medieval cathedrals) with my style being detailed, medium contrast, bracketed exposure images. I used to be all mega contrast but I'm not keen on that. I also do a lot of railway photography and the images taken thus far with the K-1 fill me with hope for what I can achieve. The attached images show to me - pleasing colours and tones but I tell you, it's weird for me getting used to an OVF after the EVF of the X-Pro2 but I genuinely enjoy getting back to DSLR photography once more. I'll keep my Fuji for portraits etc or when I'm too lazy to lug the K-1 about :P

Oh and can you spot, in the top image, the thing that makes me really chuffed to have captured it?

Anyway, look forward to meeting you all on here and posting images for critique

BTW I'd link my Flickr but there's no Pentax contributions.... yet

Hi Chris,
Along with the train driver a wave from me, living just several stations down the track from you at Derby!
Enjoy your K1 - it's a great camera.

Hi, Chris, and welcome to the forums from another Brit Glad you could join us, and thanks for the detailed intro; it's always nice to learn a bit about new members!

Congratulations on the K-1 - those are fine looking railway photos. I'm still on APS-C as far as Pentax is concerned, but have tried the K-1 and was mightily impressed.
