Pentax DA 12-24mm F4: $599 AUD - Pentax Australia. A bargain!

Great price indeed, part of me thinking it's because the DA* 11-18 is around the corner and CRK is just trying to empty out the inventory lol, not for me at this point because I've moved on to K-1 but would be a good deal for someone looking for a wide zoom, star burst was lovely when I had mine.

If I am honest I don't really know anything about surfing, but as a test of my Nikon D3 and Sigma 150-500MM OS HSM I did take some surfing photos for fun

From the Blood Bowl above to the Gold Bowl here, still K-3 and DA 10-17 Fisheye with Metz 58 AF-2


John @ Bar 8/52 by Eric C, on Flickr

Decided not to take K-1 along for the trip up the coast for this event, mainly because I was not willing to deal with the bulk and weight of K-1, also for shooting events K-1 RAW files can add up really quickly. K-3 was more nimble, also it has a higher fps than K-1, enabling me to spray and pray later with my DA* 50-135 f2.8

As a challenge to myself, I took the K-1 and Sigma 15MM f2.8 EX and Metz 58 AF-2 flash to all of the evening practice before Bondi Bow-la-rama this year and see if it works as a sports camera.


Keegan @ Bondi 7/52 by Eric C, on Flickr

Well the conclusion is that after printing some of the shots in A3 size, yes I do want 36MP in my life!

Weekly Challenge #412 - Motion Winners
Posted By elpolodiablo

Thanks for playing everyone, a lot of interesting interpretation of the theme, without further ado here's the winners!

Winner is charliezap , love the way the motion of the ride contrast against the stillness of the person and how the background perfectly complement the flow of the ride, well done!


2nd place goes to StephenHampshire , classic panning shot beautifully captured, on top of the elements you mentioned like the wheels and rods, the steam coming off the chimney/just before the front of the wheels/ off the side of the engine all contributing to the sense of motion, just wonderful!


3rd place I have decided goes to atupdate , this is a very clever way of showing motion by stacking, which compress the whole trick into a single image, very creative indeed!


Honourable mention 1 mattb123 Beautiful blue hour shot, I only wish motion is a larger element of the shot that I can pick up on straight away!


Honourable mention 2 SpecialK the trail smoke really help portrait the sense of motion, the thing about aerial acrobatic photography is that it's impossible to orient which side is up, fun shot though!


Brief comment of the entries,
rod_grant - Hahaha, that is indeed what kids this ago would be like, just wouldn't be still
Vaskebjorn - Beautiful bird shot, colour really pop, I only wish the tip of the wing was not a bit obscured by the branch
JeanF6 - excellent action shot, the dust kicked up by the wheel help enhance the sense of motion, well done
sealonsf - The blurred out denim walking to the left gives the frame a sense of motion, in contrast to the stillness of Addy, cute.
RossCo - Great sense of speed, the even more blurred out rider in the back enhance the sense of motion too
NickDB - Beautiful sunset colour, the almost double image of the kid attract you attention straight away
jacamar - interesting, we know they are heading in the same direction, but somehow beak of one of the penguins breaks the formation haha
eva - love the motion of the hula hoops and her expression
aaacb - beautiful dance photo, somehow her face was showing though the blurriness
Tamia - nice sense of the raging waters, great job!
bigoak - what's with scooter riders? They all seems to be having a great time!
Bruce Clark - Nice, the tail smoke really gives a sense of where the plane has been and where it is going
jchorst - Nice to see horse shots here, as I understand it horses as well as human are harder to capture in slow shutter speed because their movements involve going up and down, compare to say motor sport.
dlneubec - Contrast of the flow of the fall and the still of ice is really nice
noelcmn - wow how fast is the bird flapping its wing to create this effect?
ramseybuckeye - haha the ears definitely shows there is quite a breeze going on in the show, and what is this third eyelid that you mentioned? Got me intrigued!
lukulele - Nice, the leaning of the rider and the blurred out wheels both enhance the sense of motion here.

One thing I found a lot of fun to capture is motion, while I tend to use panning to get the effect I like, I would love to see what others had in mind for motion, so anything goes, show me your creative motion shots!

The Challenge will close at midnight Tuesday January 30th.

The fine print:
Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.

Rules
1. Post ONE photo (max 1024x1024).
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax/Ricoh (DSLR) camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge

Here are a few examples from my archives:

Finally start using my K-1 for skate photos with the arrival of Sigma 15MM EX Fisheye, still learning to master this combo as it is so different from my usual set up of K-5IIs and DA 10-17 Fisheye.
