Like i said, "quick" - "edit" - "sample". The intent is to contrast with the previous desaturated edit. Not to show a perfectly finish product, thats for the OP to work on. I'm surprise you did not spot the jaggies :eek:

Ipad calibration? Who in their right mind would do serious photo edit on an Ipad?

It is desaturated on my IPad. The cute little girl is bubbly, some extra colors wont hurt. Quick editted example.

Let's say I am a very talented sketch artist, I sketch up an image so realistic most people think it is a photograph. Would you let me enter it in your photography contest knowing it's a sketch?

Let's say I am a very accomplished photoshop artist, I worked on a straight out of camera jpeg, apply a charcoal sketch filter to it, erase all but just essential lines. It now ressemble one of Michael Angelo's sketches. Would you let me enter in your photo contest?

There is a line where a photograph crosses into graphics art. Cross this line and photo contest judges will throw your submission out. Different judges have different tolerance for it. And It varys according to which technique used. But it boils down to a perception that the end result is no longer photography.

Other than contact corrosion, I would verify if the batteries are still good, or if the charger is broken. I had broken third party battery that behave like yours.

How to upload photos from K3 to computer

Recommend using SD card reader approach:
- it is a lot easier to destroy your camera usb socket from repeated cable in/out than SD card in/out
- your camera tends to be placed in precarious position while usb cable is attached
- your camera cannot be used while usb is attached
- usb cable approach drain your camera battery, SD card reader drains from your computer
- most new computers have built in SD card reader slot, same for TV.
- one less cable to lug along. External SD card readers are very compact.
- no worries about usb alphabet soup

SRP is at par with BH Photo, the latter gives an outright $100 discount. The store clerk did mention that the owner give Pentaxian special discount, unfortunely did not say how much.

Thanks Freddy. One was achieved with wide open aperture, fine manual focus, careful background positioning, and FA77 pixie dust.

The top edge shows patchy clouds, this tends to support your theory of selective lit area. the shadow on lower rightmost rocks suggest lighting from the left side.

I am still wondering how the overall look was achieved though.

Here is another. Long exposure taken during low light, the far sky is correctly exposed, one would expect lots of dark
shadows in area facing the camera, but the opposite is true, many of the side of building facing the viewer are lit,
the yellow and red buildings are relatively saturated.

I am suspecting HDR as well. I've shunned HDR myself because the result is usually revolting (IMHO). But this one is really smooth. I can barely see any halo (on the upper third far background between the sky and mountain ridges).

What I find striking:
- foreground is well contrasted while exposure in the sky and far background are clearly subdued
- relatively rich saturation inspite of low light
