  • Thanks.  I just focused on the flower and waited for the bees to cooperate.
  • Thanks.  Honey coloured bees.
  • Thanks.  Its's as if the warm light of the sun pulls the whole scene together.
  • Yes I was lucky.  With the cloud cover the contrast was low so the autofocus struggled and then the sun pops out and voila.
  • Thanks.  At that time of day the intensity and angle if the sun is just right.
  • Thanks for looking.
  • Created discussions Bees in the late afternoon sun
    I saw that the flowers on this bush were getting a lot of attention from these small bees so decided to take some snaps with my 200mm. I don't need to get close. At first I tried following them ...
  • Replied in Bees
    Nice detail and colour. Putting your k50 to good use. Are these crops or are you just less cowardly than I am? I use my 200mm, not the macro version, I wish, and then crop. Although if I had known ...
  • Replied in K50 How Good.
    Lovely images. I like 1 and 4 best.  I experienced the reverse.  I haven"t  owned  a k50 but I did have a k30 which is a k50 in starwars fancy dress.  I got it as a back up to my k5 but soon found ...
  • I think you are right.  Somebody on another thread on here made the same point.  I am in Japan and l see lots of people taking photos and they are pretty much ignored.  Culturally everyone minds ...
  • I was taking a photo of a crowded passageway under a railway bridge which was lit up with reflections from the light of late afternoon sun. There was also a homeless person sitting at the entrance. ...
  • Replied in :
    Nice, but this was not my intended post.  See above.
  • Created discussions :
  • Took this which is a grid on my computer screen. This camera is described as having little to no distortion.  Really!  Looks pretty average to me. An image from a 15mm wide open to compare
  • I did a quick search online to see if I could find any figures and just comments stating great lens matched to body so little or no distortion.   It is not the distortion that bothers me.  It is ...
  • Created questions Dp2 merrill distortion?
    I recently got the dp2.  I usually use tele lenses which have very little distortion and the Dp2 is 30mm so I was wondering if the distortion/field curvature in these images is normal for this ...
  • Replied in k-01 or k-r?
    I agree with Brandrix.  I have had pentax bodies k10d,20d,k5.k01,k30 and k5iis which is my current camera.  I can say that out of those the best value body was the k30.  I originally got it as a ...
  • Replied in Bees
    Verrry nice.  I do not like bees.  Generally if one enters a room I want to leave it, in a hurry but when I have a camera I just cannot resist shooting them err I mean photographing them of ...
  • The first image I might have put down to pf but after looking at the second I doubt it. If you are sure it is the body.  You could try the K30 it produces excellent images.  I had one and saw a ...
  • Thanks for all the replies.  Camera not faulty.  Sigh of relief.  I will follow the advice re settings.  Other than battery life no complaints.
