I think at least after Fukushima it would make some sense to distinguish between nuclear power plants built in earthquake regions and those which aren't. I agree however that there are enough other risks involved (like terrorist attacks) to say that no plant is safe "enough".

Nevertheless, one has to start somewhere (to shut plants down) and old type reactors in earthquake California are the perfect start. That's what I wanted to point at.

It's a great combo. Since the 150-500 it's kinda slow, you can use higher ISO on the K5 and still use F8 (but even at F6.3 the lens is OK).
Here some pictures:

K-r nightclub photography II

hi, Last week I bougth the kr and had first gig in the nightclub photohraphy.. yet.. I did not know a thing about night club photography.. so during all this week I studied. how to photograph nightclub life.

last time I used settings like ISO 2500-32000 shutter speed 1/80.
got some decent compositions, but not much light got into the photos, and they were mediocre.

this time I used other settings - ISO 640-800 shutter speed 1/8-1/20
the results are different. Not that I like them much.. but this time, more light got into the camera and the club atmosphere was better.

however I experienced more blur than I wanted to have, also more various light fringe on people

however last time there were many beautiful women, and this time many drunk men. :)
so it balances negatively. :(

out of 180 I have 60 keepers, which I'll hand in.

here are some of the results I got..

another point I want to make is, in the very end I tried to use My flash off camera via pentax wireless flash feature. I was surprised that all of my several times the flash fired not at some strobe but after my camera command.! +1 for pentax.

any C&C are extremely welcomed and appreciated.

and on these two I used wireless flash..
