If I might emerge from lurking and make a suggestion. Perhaps if you joined up to the Flickr Singles Challenge group it might help you get Explored :)
There are 99 members now, you could be 100! The link is here

A new month and a new Single Challenge. All are welcome!

Ever wanted to find fame and glory by being Explored on Flickr? .......... Then why not join the Single in Challenge?

The idea is simple:

Every day, take a picture with your chosen lens of the month and post it to the thread of the day. Then other members of the group will comment on your shot. Don't be shy and comment on other member's pictures too.

Here are some more details

1. You need to join the group to post
2. This thread is only for discussing the March 2013 Challenge - if you have a problem this is where you ask.
3. You can upload your pictures to an album in the forums here, Flickr, Picassa .......... Here are some of mine on the forums and on Flickr.
4. Each day has a thread of it's own. Here is March 1st.
5. This is how to put your pictures from an album on the forums to the daily thread

if you post from Flickr you need to copy and paste the BBCode

This all must sound a real pain but by Day 3 you will be an expert! I promise ;)

The only strict rule we have is it must be a Pentax or Ricoh body and the pictures you post must be from the same lens.

If you miss a day don't worry.

We are a very friendly, very international bunch. Come and try!

I still have some film negatives to scan and some comments to give but I'd better get my lens review in. I used the 17mm F4 Takumar fisheye. I had thought this lens would give me a lot of trouble but it turned out easier than I thought. I worked well on both the K-x and the K-01. The front element curves slightly outer wards and after a few days I replaced the original metal lens cap with a small neoprene bag to prevent scratches. I think the main problem with this lens is the price. I got this one cheap but for eBay prices you would be much better getting the DA10-17mm which is much more versatile and better at preventing flare.

Got a nice new shiny bit of kit recently?

Got a dusty Takumar sitting on the shelf?

Ok the December thread is now up. Find it here. After all these months I don't think I can explain how to post to threads for new members. :(

@Paddy I was wondering where you had gone! Post up when you can :)

@Jaskassp that theme sounds like a good idea. I am rather zoomless at the minute though. I need to think of what lens to use.

Flowers are fine! You have to shoot what you see :)

On the subject of cameras, I was very surprised yesterday at the JAXA museum. I only saw 2 other DSLRs and they were both K-30s.

Game Single in July 2012

Still the hardest working group on the forums is looking for members, old and new to join the Challenge for July.

The rules are simple. Choose one lens and post a picture to the daily group thread. Here is a sample day from May 2012.

There is no pressure and everyday doesn't have to be a masterpiece.

Many parts of the world are represented Australia, Asia, Europe and North America. It's a great way to get more involved in the forums too.

Here is how it works
  • Take a picture each day using the same lens for the whole month (it's ok / inevitable to miss a couple of days - so don't worry)

  • Upload the picture to a "Single in July 2012" album in your album space (Here is mine but you make your own :) ) on the forums or you can use Flickr (Single Challenge link) or other hosting service

  • Post the picture to the daily thread here.

  • Comment on other member's pictures. All comments will be warmly received from the basic "I like it" to "Well, I think you channelled Ansel Adams wonderfully!"

  • Have fun, learn lots about your camera / lens combination, and yourself!

EASY!

You can freely select any single lens to use for the whole month, and it's OK to use extension tubes, macro add-ons, teleconverters etc. However, please include the lens details when you are posting your pictures.

As this is the Pentax Forums I think it would be best to use Pentax cameras or bodies. As to lenses any manufacturer is ok. So full frame must wait unless you want to use film :)

If you are unsure how to post pictures please check the video below or ask in this thread.

Wasn't there a Single in September last year? Does there need to be a revised title? Also this month repaap put the name of the lens he was using into his album title, which I thought was a good idea. With so many people this month it was hard to keep track of who was using what.

I think I am in again. September can't be any worse than August, can it?

@Jack Thanks for the hard work rounding up all the previous Challengers.

@Karen It's a pity! I really enjoyed looking at your pictures - not only your dogs but the countryside too. The stone bridge and the winding road going up the hill.


Nice to see everyone else keep going. August would be six months for me - so why not?! Now to decide 24mm Tak or Mir 24 ...

My last photo is up now too. It's amazing that when I started the month I really didn't like the DA70 at all and was thinking of selling it but from using it this month and the comments from people in the challenge my opinion has now completely changed.
My aim for next month is to make better comments!
Thanks everybody!
