Black borders around photos taken with K-r

Hey folks, I just recently acquired a Pentax K-r, and I noticed that there are black borders around the perimeter of the photographs I've been taking with it. Is this just automatic lens correction?

Here's a crop from the top of the frame:

That seems to do the trick. I don't know why I didn't just try that before posting this thread. :P

That could just be the hood if it's misaligned.
