Good Morning, all.

Following some silliness on dpreview, I think I will be spending more time here. So, by way of introduction...

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia. I've been shooting with Pentax since the mid 1980's, having bought a Super A after using a trusty old Zenit SLR. The Super A served me well until I bought a K10D at the end of 2006. I continue to use and enjoy the K10D. My favourite lenses are the FA31mm LTD, the DA70mm LTD, the DA12-24mm, and the A50mm f1.4.

I enjoy landscape/seascape photography and I am experimenting more with macro (I have a Sigma 105mm EX DG). I also make valiant but vain attempts to photograph my two young sons. I don't post photos on-line, mainly due to apathy. But it's on the To-Do list.

Software-wise, I am a Linux user (Suse 11.0). For raw processing, I use ufraw or digikam, and for photo management I use digikam. I like to do all major photo corrections, curves, etc in 16 bit, and I may use uncompressed 8-bit images in GIMP if I need layers.

Anyway, that's a bit about me. Over and Out! Paul

You don't post photos of squirrels, do you? We hate squirrels, and those that hang out with squirrels.


(kidding, welcome, and we've been discussing the unfortunate state of affairs on dpreview. It's much cooler here anyway.)

Squirrels, no... Possums, on the other hand

And thanks for the warm welcome, everyone.
