Merry Christmas - LBA Post [2 Img]

Merry Christmas, all. A couple of LBA shots from the DA 70 that I opened Christmas morning; the 1st pic is of my grand daughter digging into a present, the 2nd is of our dining room wall after the sun came out on a cold (for coastal Texas) Christmas afternoon.

Happy New Year Everyone,

Jerry

Nice. Congrats! I'm still trying to decide between the DA70 and FA 77.

Merry Christmas Jerry!

Congratulations on the new lens. That is a precious photo of your granddaughter. I love the detail you can pick out in the border and the wall of the second photo.

Merry Christmas Jerry. Congratulations on the new acquisition to your LBA "family" Was thinking seriously of the 70mm pancake but have decided to wait till the 77mm ltd comes available again. But with captures like yours maybe I'll rethink my decision.
Great picture of your granddaughter. I like the expression of concentration on her face. The shadow detail on your dining room wall gives it almost an abstract feel. Nice capture.

Thanks, Tracy. I hope you're enjoying the holidays, family and your new K10D as much as I am.

Hey, you gotta be east(he's another sailor)saltwater.

Thanks for the kind comments. I went for a DA 70 to complete my trio of pancake lenses for those times I want to travel light. An FA 77 (with it's speed and extra reach) will probably be more versatile.

Happy New Year

Yep, Jer that's me! Unfortunately "between vessels" till I retire, then watch out! I've got my eye out for a nice ketch
I've got all this nice "Christmas money" and the FA 77 is nowhere available! Woe! Maybe I'll wait, but both the 70mm pancake and the 12-24mm wide zoom are both calling. Choices, choices choices

The shot of your grand daughter is really beautiful. How was it lit?

Hi Jerry,

Great pictures! The first one is a great portrait. The dynamic range on the second one is very nice - great detail. Thanks for posting them?

BTW, where along the coast in Texas? I'm in Clearlake (which is neither), but used to live in Galveston.

Thanks very much. I just used a bounced Pentax AF 36k0 FGZ mounted on a K10D.

Hey Russ, thanks for the kind comments.

I live just down the road (FM 2004) in Lake Jackson - not right on the coast, but pretty close. However, I dock my sailboat at Waterford Harbor in Kemah - so I spend a lot of time (especially weekend time) in your neck of the woods.

Wow! I have been considering getting one of the Pentax flashes that can be used in auto modes with the K10D, but this shot of your grand daughter is the one that I think has pushed me over the edge into just doing it. The skin tones and light on her hair really look like you're using diffused studio lighting. I have been using the attached K10D flash and have been dissapointed with how harsh the light is on skin tones of fair skinned people.

Thanks for the info!
