Helios 44M 58mm f/2 and Pentax Super Multi Coated Takumar 55mm f/1.8 images

The Tak image looks a litter brighter (or perhaps warmer). But the real question for me is whether there are differences in the histograms. In theory with some simple tweaks to the brightness and contrast, could you make the first image look like the second? If yes, then it is more a matter of whether the camera is reading the exposure right through these lenses. But if there are more significant differences in the histograms, then you would have a sense of which colors are picked up better by each of the lenses. The main appeal of the Helios come from the bokeh it can generate. If my primary concern was sharpness, I'd pick the Tak every time.

The first owl shot is fantastic and the staring pose in the last owl shot is just plain fun.

#12 did not get my vote, but I think it is a truly brilliant photo (I just put my emphasis on the "Candid" part and thought another image hit that note better). But I'm truly impressed by the angle and timing of that image.

I really like it, but I might crop a bit tighter to get rid of the very bright top right corner which I find distracting.

I don't think the GTA is Canada even if it is the centre of the Universe ;)

For me, these days, it is more about logistics than anything else because there are too many competing interests and logistical challenges within the family. I still can't see us getting to Algonquin, but if we can manage an overnight trip this summer, I'm all for exploring small town Ontario. One thing we have done a lot over the years, both in Ontario and Maryland is fruit and vegetable picking. I know of a lot of people who would benefit from "learning" that food actually grows somewhere and doesn't just magically appear in a supermarket (or grow inside of tins for that matter).

I understand your comment about the Rockies. And there are a lot of cultural / historical references that make a lot more sense once you've actually explored the terrain yourself.

You are doing a good job advertising for the welcome centre and the area as whole. One of these days, maybe I'll get out of the GTA...

Tamron 28-75 lost aperture communication

I just checked my lens and you haven't lost a contact as others have noted. It does look like you have a build up of dust or other grime in the groove just below the screw. It is hard from the angle and lighting to see if anything is up with the aperture lever. It doesn't look quite right, but that may just be a distortion of the image. Feel free to post more photos if you are still having problems.

Also, you mention switching out of A mode - can you manually stop the lens down? Does the camera recognize this?

Is it okay to be critical of your shots once in a while? The perspective is fine, but I'd rather you put the in focus wheel towards the right third, or perhaps made the third wheel the one in focus.

The standouts for me are 4 and 5 (just for the cute factor) and 13. For the others I'd be slicing hairs to pick one over the other.

There is a lot to like in this collection, but I fully agree with Marina's mother. Should you have the chance to shoot her again, I'd encourage you to experiment more.
