Here's my take on post processing:



Corrected some highlights, cropped and rotated a bit to level the perspective, cloned out some dust spots and adjusted some sliders.

Contest Raw fragility - the Duplo DA21ltd give away contest

Dear Duplo,

first, let me say that this contest is a truly generous gesture from you! It shows your great spirit and passion for photography. On this occasion, I would like to wish you lots of wonderful shots on your future photographic journey, and I sincerely hope you find another workhorse lens that will serve you like this one has.

My name is Luka, I am a post grad graphic student and a passionate photographer. I come from a small, but beautiful Central European country of Slovenia. I have always been fond of photography, but it really grew on me back in 2008 when I got my first DSLR, the K200d, when an adventure of neverending challenge and learning started for me. I practically discover the world surrounding me through my viewfinder as I take my camera everywhere. It kind of helps me express my view of the world.



I took this photo a couple of years ago from a hill called Sveta Ana (St. Ana) in Slovenia. It is titled "Morning impressions on marsh fields". Me and my girlfriend got up early and went uphill to catch the golden hour. When we got there, we ran into our dear friend, also a pentaxian. I saw this wonderful scene developing in front of me, and I didn't have any long focal lengths with me, so my friend kindly offered me his Tamron adaptall 300/2.8 with a 1.4x tele converter for a couple of shots. I captured this beautiful moment at 5:46 Am and it didn't really last long. The golden sunrays pierced the mist on marshes fields and all the trees were bathing in mist, just one little tree stood out from the crowd. It felt amazing. Marshes are not a very friendly environment and those trees have seen it all in their lifetime; They withstood floods, draught, were covered with snow and ice and been hit by strong and cold winds. But this magical moment they deserved.

I think I would benefit greatly by winning your generous contest prize, as the focal length really suits my photographic style. And where it comes to this focal length, nothing can really compare to 21 LTD. It has been on my wishlist for a long time now. Your 21 LTD really has such an amazing history and experience that I would do my best to give this little gem some new adventures and experiences. It obviously deserves it.

Best regards,
Luka

It would probably be FA 28/2.8 AL for me.

Your favorite non-Pentax lens?

my favourite non-pentax lens is Sigma 50-150/2.8 HSM II. I was split between this one and DA*50-135. While I was just charmed with optical quality of the DA*, the SDM performance (coupled with my K200d) simply annoyed me... Oh, and the sigma cost me exactly half the price of DA*.
Before I bought 50-150, my favourite non-pentax was sigma 10-20/4-5.6.

cheers, Luka

thanks! Good results! So, for NR you find it best using Topaz Denoise?

I personally use the Imagenomic Noiseware plugin and it really does an amazing job. Guess I have to try the Topaz.

Cheers, Luka

Glad it's working now. It's a lovely little camera. Always keep mine in the bag, just in case I go all sentimental about film chemistry :)

The P30 shutter won't release without batteries. Give it some fresh battery infusion, and it will snap like a tiger:cool:
