Good looking shots, CR, pauk, and Ray

Ok, so as promised, some K10D files developed in Darktable. It's early days, I'm still learning my way around. The lens is the SMC-A 24 2.8.
I'm sure someone will tell me that my pictures look about the same regardless of camera, lens or software that was used
A good series of images, CR. Yes, I'll tell you that. They look about the same as you normally present to us and I see that as a sign of somebody who knows how to post process. Your style shows through no matter what equipment or software that you use. As always, enjoyable viewing. TFS.

A few more from yesterday's (17 April 2018) outing. K10D and Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4.0 DC Macro HSM 013 Contemporary.
You just never know what I will photograph.

Grevillea.

You are too kind. And you are getting some nice results from that Sigma/K10D combination. I hadn't considered the Contemporary 17-70 lately because I like my 16-45 a lot, but maybe I should reconsider that...

Thanks, CR. That Sigma 17-70 is a great lens when it nails the focus point. Some times it doesn't but I am working on it. I am assuming that I might be part of the problem. I have often wondered if I should have gotten a 16-45 but I always wanted more at the long end. That's why I upgraded from 18-55 to 17-70.

Windy Post Cross yet again. Sorry about that, but the darn place keeps on giving me moments that I want to remember. This is with the 18-55mm WR.

I don't think you ever have to apologize for your images from this place. Once again, perfect composition, lighting, and...lens? Beautiful shot.

I can't think of a good reason why this isn't being sold for a good amount of money.
A photographic masterpiece in my oh so humble opinion...

Well, I'll be sorry if you don't keep sharing those moments with us. That one is a great example of your photographic skills. It has it all: composition, subject matter, lighting, subtle processing and it's pleasing to the eye.
I assume that the water is the snow melt runoff, yes?

I wasn't sure, Paul, so I asked Mr Google and he knew. It is a Royal Enfield Classic 350. Single cylinder, of course. They sell for about $6490 drive away here in Australia. There is also a 500cc version for about $2000 more.

Thanks guys.

Paul, yes it's that 18-55mm again after all these years of pouring scorn on the poor things (although mine isn't exactly in showroom condition). Christian, I'm flattered at the thought that my snaps could have any value. And Ray, the snow melt is long gone now and the stream (or leat as they're called here) is at about its normal level in this shot. In just under four weeks we've gone from blizzards and snowdrifts to warm sunshine.

The K10D has long since been gone from my life... but even still I often unearth a bit of overlooked images.
From 2009 with the DA* 50-135:

A couple from my last trip to France:

First is a French bullfight in Arles (where the bull has all of the advantages!) and the second is the I. M. Pei pyramid at the Louvre taken at the very end of the blue hour.

So, did the bullfighter make it out, or did the bull poke him in the backside?

The object is for the "bullfighters" to grab a ribbon attached to the bull's forehead and escape with his life, in order to win a prize. While none of the bullfighters were gored while we were there (thankfully!), it has happened a number of times. The bulls obviously have learned a thing or two in their careers. Even being behind the red wall around the bull ring is no guarantee of safety. While we were there, a bull used his horns to toss the boards in the wall at one spot into the ring, got into the area behind the wall and circled the ring with everyone there bailing out over the wall into the ring, until the bull left that area and then they went over the wall again, in the opposite direction. Reminded me of a cartoon on tv!
