Cups grow on trees. Just playing on the kitchen bench and it turned out better than I expected. :)

Thanks, Dave. Yes, there are those who know but nobody seems to listen to them. It makes no sense.

Thanks, Tim. We are safe but I really feel for those who have lost their homes. The count exceeds 600.

Thanks, Mark. This morning most of the smoke haze has gone and there actually are some clouds in the sky but I doubt that we will get any rain. The situation here has not been helped by an extended drought which means that the bush is very dry and once a fire starts it grows very fast and becomes almost impossible to put out and to add to all that there has been very few controlled hazard reduction burnoffs during the winter months because the greenies won't allow it. End of rant.

Thank you, Paul. I know that you have recently experienced similar conditions in your state so you know what it feels like. Yes, we are desparate for rain but there is none on the horizon just yet.

These images are not showing the normal colours that you and I expect from a K10D. This is Soldiers Beach where I have taken many beautiful photos with bright blue skies but not today. The sky is not overcast but is full of bushfire smoke. Our state is burning. Last night (Friday Dec 6) there were 108 fires burning in NSW and 74 of those are "out of control" according to our Rural Fire Service. The smoke that you see is affecting the health of many people especially those with any sort of breathing difficulties. The smoke has also reached New Zealand and is affecting them as well.

Taken with Pentax K10D and Super-Takumar 50mm f1.4 7-element version.

Yes, you should, Ken. Because that is exactly what you will get - something different. K10D works well with the DA 15mm Limited, as well.

Thank you to everybody for your kind words. I have always been happy with that shot and a lot of credit must go to my DA 15mm Limited.
As it happens I will be back in that building next Wednesday so I might even give it another try. Plus there are lots of other good photo ops there.

Re the Moggie 1000: Memories, memories! I had a 4-door sedan version of that model for many years. I was working at British Motor Corporation for some of those years. Thanks for the memory!

I hope that is doesn't come to that. You are too smart to let that happen. Just relax a bit. Don't let your drive to attain perfection do that to you.

BTW, I did notice that there was something missing in that previous image ------ a pony! :)

I did as you suggested and clicked through to Flickr and viewed the images at full resolution. Unfortunately, not on the same screen.

The differences are there but to my eyes they were very subtle. I thought the K10D profile looked the best but everyone's eyes are different as are our screens and the environment in which we are viewing.
All of them are acceptable and it is a very pleasant and well composed scene. Exactly what we have come to expect from Dartmoor Dave. :)
