ND filter: Image 2
Stacked: Image 1 (ND filter CANNOT get that kind of turbulence in water)

I like both, but I prefer the Image 1 because the "movement" feeling at the bottom

Pentax K3II Failure

Exactly!

Sorry, I don't have the schematics, but...

That's the reason why I said "IMHO, I guess that many dead digital Cameras could be "homed" fixed, by checking-cleaning the power switch and testing the boards fuses."
Multimeter is useless if you do not know the value to compare vs the "meter", at least the fuse must be near to 0 Ohms and being the couse of Dead failarues most the time and are easy to identify in the boards.

Well, being in the matter, Tamron 70-200mm f 2.8 is an IF focus type lens, that does NOT prove my theory but this is going to be first case to archive. Thank You.

Pentax K3II Failure

Before switch to software programmer I worked in an HP's Service Center.

Being in warranty period: repairing "electronics" devices means identify the damage board and replace it with a new one. 1 to 4 weeks to get the spare.

If the device was out of warranty, we do NOT fix the board at component basis... except for a board's fuse blown or the switch failure (that was the only components we checked)

IMHO, I guess that many dead digital Cameras could be "homed" fixed, by checking-cleaning the power switch and testing the boards fuses.

My own theory in why the main fuse are blown in Pentax DSLR: a voltage/current's peak by a temporal focus screw's stuck or powering the lens IF.

What was the latest lens You'd been using before Your K-3II fails?

If the flash hot shoe is NOT riveted (it is screwed), you could get another cheap camera to get the spare from.

I don't know if the *ist model will fit.

Oops!

In Electronic components Failures most commonly occur near the beginning and near the ending of the lifetime of the parts.

I'am lucky cos my K3II, after 3 years, never let me down :)

A really good camera, I'm waiting for the next sucessor or the K1iii... or an used 645D by december, whatever happens first ;)

I'm really sorry, let me redeem myself

In western culture, when we look a picture in fact the first thing we do is "scan" tha picture. What we see in the upper left corner is what we seen first.

"Gabriela" shows nothing intesting (a wall edge) in that first quadrant so the next thing we look is the eyes of the model, following the scan secuence.

So I saw first (in a fast stare) a disruptive door entrance in the wall, then I loved the bokeh of what I have seen after, the model... If it was me, I would do the shot again: I would use a plain wall, to acentuate the isulation of the model.

My favo quotes form Oscar Wilde:
'The only way to behave to a woman is to make love to her if she is pretty and to someone else if she is plain.'
'Friendship is far more tragic than love. It lasts longer.'
'The tragedy of growing old is not that one is old but that one is young.'
