Sorry, but she was wrong, but you probably can't tell her that. There is a lot of evidence that money, and the things you buy with it, can buy you some happiness, and happiness is an emotional connection. See the link for the article that sums it up nicely, and pay close attention to paragraph 11:

Scientific Proof That Buying Things Can Actually Lead To Happiness (So

Plus, the new camera allows us to have the experiential happiness that is mentioned. We take the new camera out and DO something with it, which provides that emotional satisfaction. Trying to hone or develop a skill, and progressing in it, also gives us that sense of accomplishment, that adds to the happiness quotient. And after seeing a number of different cameras and the user interface, I really think Pentax has the best!


This may be more applicable to men than women, which may account for some disconnect in this way of thinking, as women are more socially oriented than men, stereo typically.

Hello All:

New contest is now open and runs until Midnight Nov 20 EDT-USA

(I was asked to post a new contest as there was no closure on the previous one. I trust the reason for this did not involve a serious problem)

Rules:

Any forum member may invent and post a caption for the photo, posting the caption as a reply in this thread.

All readers of the thread, including those posting captions, are encouraged to vote for any and all of the captions they appreciate by "LIKEing" them using the forum's LIKE feature.

At the end of the contest period, the host will count the votes and report who won. In case of a tie the host gets to break the tie, but will not otherwise submit a caption or vote.

The winner will be notified ASAP by the current host by PM and a post in the thread. The new host should post a link to the new contest thread at the end of the caption contest round just finished.

Submissions should be text (no video or audio files) — caption, limerick, motivational, poem or prose — whatever inspires you to describe the photo or catch attention. Submit by replying to the thread. Contestants may submit more than one entry but it must be in a separate post.

Important:

Even if you do not submit an entry, please “like” any posts you feel deserve it as this is how the winner is chosen. And if you DO submit an entry, please also find an entry that you like from among your competitors' efforts and "like" that one as well. Enter often, vote more often. and most important: Have fun !

If the image is too big for you, edit your account "Settings and Options" for a smaller display size.

Hello Team:

This is a Spring theme, but let's see what you can do with it. These little guys were in the nest, 5 feet from my desk, outside the window. Perfect opportunity to do some close up nature work!

I forgot to post this a few weeks ago, but at Niagara Falls over the week after the 4th of July and had a bit of a surprise, with 3 pentaxes and one pentax owner (ME Super) film camera, commenting on each other! I had my K-1, there was a K30 and K50. And the most popular camera at the falls network (we visited both the US and Canadian sides), yep, the camera phone!

PS- It helped to start the conversation having the Pentax Forums T shirt on!

Great contrast on the leaves. I different effect, nice!

The shooter in the first image takes away from landscape, IMO. THe front rocks are too prominent, but the image works all the same.

NIcely done! I like the effect you did in editing. Turn off the date in the camera. If digital, the image is tagged with it anyway. You can even crop the bottom of the image to remove it and the image is still quite nice!
