Thanks for hosting again, aaacb!

Here are some additional photos I shot at Dahlia Hill in Midland, Michigan. Volunteers plant and maintain the dahlias, and there's no admission charge for spectators.

I used a monopod-mounted Pentax K-S2 with an older Pentax 100mm macro lens.

I like this as posted. Perhaps if you moved to the left, positioned your camera even lower — or both — you might have been able to eliminate the overhead wire and/or the person and vehicle at right.
Best wishes from a car guy in Michigan.

Thanks to aaacb for hosting and also to all who post in this thread.

I am continuing to post at Facebook a daily floral or nature photo. I am trying to give friends and relatives something to which they can look forward during the pandemic. Here is one of the images I captured on Saturday morning at Dahlia Hill in Midland, Michigan, U.S.A.

I used a monopod-mounted Pentax K-S2 with an older Pentax 100mm macro lens.

Welcome to the 638th edition of Pictures of the Week (POTW), covering Aug. 3-19, 2021. Let's see what you have been shooting and/or processing.

POTW is a great spot to show off six or fewer shots you take or are editing within the thread's date range.

My images were captured with my monopod-mounted Pentax K-S2 and an older SMC Pentax Macro1.4/100mm lens or SMC Pentax DAL 1:3.5-5.8 18-55mm AL.

To post your photos, just hit reply and attach away. Feel free to start immediately.

Please:
• consider including in your post any special circumstances or tips on technique or equipment which might be interesting to others.
• identify your camera and lens if that information is easily available to you.

And please invite other Pentaxians to join us.

Some rules:
1) No theme, just post your favorite pix
2) Six or fewer images per person per thread to prevent thread bloat
3) Any Pentax, Ricoh or Samsung camera, film or digital

The current host will invite a new host via Private Message (PM), but if you are interested and willing to host POTW, please send me a PM, before I contact others.

Thanks very much to all previous hosts and to people who have posted images!

You might want to try using Nik's Viveza software, which allows use of Control Points with its Brightness, Contrast, Saturation and Structure tools. You could thereby work with small portions of the image. Or you could adjust the entire image. I use the Viveza 2 version. But there's a newer version. Best wishes.

Welcome to the 633rd edition of Pictures of the Week (POTW), covering June 2021 and July 1-3, 2021. Let's see what you have been shooting and/or processing.

Please note that because very few photographers participated last week, I have broadened the eligible period this time to include all of June plus the first three days of July. POTW is a great spot to show off six or fewer shots you take or are editing within the thread's date range.

My images were captured with my monopd-mounted Pentax K-S2 and an older SMC Pentax Macro1.4/100mm lens. For the daylily close-ups I added a Rayox M-150.

To post your photos, just hit reply and attach away. Feel free to start immediately.

• consider including in your post any special circumstances or tips on technique or equipment which might be interesting to others.
• identify your camera and lens if that information is easily available to you.
