I really like that Dragon's Breath image. Very nice composition and colours. I'd be happy with that if I had taken it.

yep, awesome work with "Dragon's Breath", steve.

I also like the textures in "decay".
Why, thank you!

My journey with the K10D has been a pleasant one. It is looking pretty worn as of late (scratched rear LCD, labels rubbed off, etc.), but still takes nice photos.

Great Images!

Thanks to everyone for posting such fine examples of the K10D in use- not to mention the skills of the photographer!
Here's a couple of older shots, they're X-posted from other forums. I really enjoy how well the sensor handles subtle color changes like the sunbeams against the sky, these are sometimes hard to pull out. Also the realistic texture of the metal on the macro gear photo, another great quality of the K10D.
As an aside, I saw a decent 'user' K10 sell for under $200 on the marketplace here recently. Quite a bargain, I was tempted to buy it myself!

Nice shot. Always breaks my heart to see those old cars wasting away like that.

And that one appears to be an intentional part of the landscaping. My dad collects old Buicks. Every once in awhile I suggest that a few of them might make good planters.

K-10D often handles high ISO badly.
Last night it did OK.
ISO 1600 (maxed out) with monopod support.
The lens was an old Tamron SP23A 60-300mm and I was shooting wide open because the light was so bad.
