Great shots with the mighty K2DMD. I love how the third one shows the pecking order! Lion, jackal, vulture!

Excellent shots with superb both camera and the lens !! I like very much the roughness of these photos which coresponds perfectly to the subject. Your shots are very much live-like experience , contrary to digital shots which for my usually too clean and too 'plasticy-synteticy' .. Thanks for sharing these shots of magnificent subjects !

A few weeks ago, I took my power chair out by myself and met up with a friend to have a beer at a small, local beer joint. Before leaving, I had my mom put my Bronica ETR-Si around my neck, and since my hands don't work well, I had her preset the exposure to Sunny 16. It was still daylight when I left the house, and I managed to shoot one decent frame on the way. I met up with my friend, hung out for a few hours, had a few beers, and then headed home. The sun had just gone down behind the western hills, and it was just getting dark, but the sky was still fairly bright. Sure enough, I come this scene that I think will make a great photo, but now I'm by myself. I managed to wind the camera to the next frame, but my exposure is still at 1/250 and f/11 with Ektar in the camera. I didn't have any way to meter the scene, but I figured I needed f/8 and 1/125 at least for a good exposure. Well, I tried as hard as I could, for about 3 minutes, to change either the shutter or aperture luck before giving up, defeated. At this point I was quite frustrated and discouraged, but I decided I would take the photo anyway, and just hope for the best.
Here's the results. I figure this is at least 2 stops underexposed, but sometimes you have to take what your given.

The sky looks fine to me. Maybe cropping some off the bottom will balance things better, but it worked out OK for the conditions.

Silhouettes are great... probably 1 stop underexposed. And I would also crop the solid black part in half. Around bottom 1/4 of the image.

I like it Colton, if it wasn't overexposed i don't think you would have gotten those colors. Your narrative really puts my small struggles into perspective.

Thanks guys.
When I first edited this,I played with cropping some of the black off the bottom, but I didn't like it and I decided to leave it.

I like it Colton. I wish you could have changed the settings like you wanted, but this is a nice shot that really brings out the colors. It must have been really frustrating. The sky is lovely, and I think the bottom is a good silhouette and balances well.

Gofour's pics look like the real thing, or better like YOUR OWN eye would see the lions in real life; most digital shots today look like a CG crapfest like Transformers.

Minolta SRT-101b, Kodak Gold 200. I deliberately got some flare on the first one, though I can't remember which lens I used now. I like cool flares on film and I want to learn to use them more.
