tarakanchik: pretty interesting
Thanks. I didn't think it would do well here, but worth a shot. Most people go for the standard "pretty" shots.
I wouldn't call it "Lomo" but a nice shot nonetheless.
jonikon: The K-30 may be a very good camera (leaving the reliability issue of Pentax DSLRs aside), but it only makes up one half of the image quality equation, with the other half being the lens in front of the sensor. Unfortunately the Pentax DSLRs suffer from a lot of cheap lenses with poor optical qualities, or very expensive lenses with acceptable, but not exceptional optical qualities. For example, the Pentax SMC 16-50mm f/2.8 lens is over $1400 at reputable dealers like B&H photo, but this lens only gets 3 stars out of 5 (or 60%), for optical quality from the Photozone lens review. For value and the ultimate in optical lens quality, Nikon is a much better choice for lenses than Pentax, which makes a Nikon DSLR the better choice for a camera.
There is no reliability issue with Pentax DSLRS that is any different with any other brand. I used a K20D for 3 years with ZERO issues. Granted the SDM issues with some lenses have been a sore point but optically Pentax lenses are as good or better than any other. You're splitting hairs - the Nikon 17-55 f2.8 gets 3.5 stars. No big difference. How about looking at photos instead of charts. Sony lenses test horribly but I've seen a number of great photos taken with them.
photo nuts: Entry with the nicest colors. Well done!
Thanks nuts. Just one of those "keep it simple" pics.
James A Rinner: Very nicely done! Thanks for entering and congratulations on the 1st!
Nice colorful image. It caught ny eye because I actually own a Honeytone amp just like that!
John Cal: Excellent work, very creepy :)
Creepy seems to turn up in a lot of my work. Hmm
Thanks. My first 1st place!
Thanks. A little upside/downside
Thanks. Sadly the building was demolished recently to make way for a boring office park
Great shot of a really cool looking bird
I realized that after posting, that's why I withdrew immediately. I got caught up in the Lomo in the title but not the B&W :-)
