Eric,
It might be a coincidence but I thought your colors, especially butterflies colors were stunning lately !
And super Sharp as well...


***************
This morning, spent 3 hours around Dieppe in France while the sunrise, had a lot of fun with Tripod, Focus stacking and / Or HDR. Used 3 lenses that I was carrying, Pentax 20-35, Pentax 24-70 and Pentax 70-200mm. Not a light kit but all 3 lenses were really useful.
Weather was with no rain and light was OK, but I was kinda disappointed not to have a nice sunrise light glow.

This one is handheld, Pentax FA 20-35mm /F4 @5,6

I dont use Flick anymore.
I think I found the issue, for some reason the jpeg quality in my export settings in Lr went from 72 to 52...and quality suffered a lot.
Here is a few shots with Jpeg 800px (panorama 1600px) and Quality as 72.

Pentax smc FA 20-35mm /F4 as usual ! It was at a time where my 24-70mm was at the repair shop, so the 20-35mm was glued on the K1.

A few pictures from a trip to Limoges, France.
I forgot about theses pictures, sometimes there is too much of a backlog !

All taken with Pentax smc FA 20-35mm /F4
The last one is a handheld picture taken @1/80th, IBIS did his job pretty well.

Off topic, but Has something changed in PF about image compression ? I use the same settings since about a year (Jpeg 800px / quality in Lr = 62) but since about a couple weeks I have the impression every images I post are overly compressed with great details lost.
What are you guys settings ?

Second one with the light leak is killing IMHO.
I would delete the "holes" in the ground in front of the model, it is distracting to me, thoses behind her are great Power lines though.
Great picture !

I keep experimenting with ON1 Raw Software, and I couldnt get the same Export results as Lightroom when using the same settings (jpegs, compression, size etc).
Image is pretty ugly with some weird compression I just noticed after posting it.

Welcome Back ! Nice B&W as usual Teiki !



Wonderful !
Im not writing this because this flower is the basis for my everyday cold and refreshing drink : Bissap !



Great set Norm, and the PS picture is stunning !







Always a fan of you series Jean, Im surprised everytime ...and that is very nice to be surprised !



Wow, another nice set Frederic!



Wow, this B@W is very nice and unexpected for a night shot like this. Congrats mate!


Very nice set. You're doing justice to this lens.
I want to try it because I see so many incredible pics taken with this lens but my main concern is about the 28mm...I would go without any hesitation if this lens was a 24-105mm :D



Theses colors are fantastic ! and great framing as well.

*********

Im slowly trying to move away from Lr as it became so slow to work with, and the only software I can think of now is ON1 Photo RAW.
The biggest problem is to leave all my Lr presets, it took me so much time to fine tune them I just can't resolve of letting this work go away.

Still, Im getting used to ON1 and it's great to see how developpers are trying to improve their soft on a sustained rate of enhancement. It's a lot faster now, it's missing some features but it looks like it could be a good Lr/Ps challenger quiet soon. My only complain is some random crashes when workin in the layers module, a lot less than about 6 months ago so I see we are going in the right direction.

It's fun to learn a new software, Im trying different things and I can see I've overdone the edits :D, but I guess it's part of the learning process...first you overprocess....then you move the sliders back after some time héhé !

Pentax 24-70mm /f2.8
Very boring weather day.
I took some time to seat on this bench reading for a while, then all of a sudden the sun came in and the whole vibe changed for a couple minutes...

My first time using ON1 Photo Raw2017 to develop a .dng.
This software has come a long way from the time I bought the beta version back in december 2016.

Best Eclipse Shot I've seen so far, it's like I can see the time passing by, thanks !



Love this one, for a couple seconds I couldnt really understand what I was seeing, I really like this feeling when it happens in front of a picture.



I can see myself there, thanks for this nice picture. I like the translucid water !

K1 painfully slow to write files to SD.
Posted By DimC

One of the main weakness of the K1 is the buffer cleaning time.
I've been in troubles a couple times due to this limitation while shooting concerts.
I was very afraid of this issue when shooting my first wedding but everything went fine as you have some downtime (short I agree) during wedding ceremony.

One of the main problem of this buffer issue is that even if you have 2 SD card slots, you can't really use the SD card backup mode as it's so slow you can't even take 6 or 7 pics without the camera going to a halt...
I was forced to use the RAW + JPEG (with jpegs files to almost minimum size) but I was scared to death about a SDCard issue, so I was using multiple smaller SD Cards changing them every 10-15 mins during the ceremonies.

Of course I turned off all in camera image enhancement as I shoot raw only, Still buffer is filled pretty quickly.

Really impressive lens on the Pentax K1 is the SMC Pentax-FA 20-35mm F4 AL !

It's a very good alternative to the newer Pentax 15-30mm /f2.8 IMHO. I was reviewing some images I took since I bought my K1 back in november last year and a fair amount of my favorites are taken with this lens.
Ill be very curious to read what you guys think about this lens on your K1.
BTW I bought this lens by looking at some pictures in this same thread, dont remember who displayed some amazing shots and I was hooked immediatly.
