Marlea: I want some of what he's having.
Love this pic, you just have to feel happy yourself looking at it.

Tkanks, Marlea! His hat and coat are made from goat skin, they are very simple but practical and long lasting. I'm glad that the image made you feel happy.

Doberman: I would name this picture "Alone in the dark" :)

I know what you felt. It was a hazy morning, but the sun happened to shine on his face when I took the photo, which made the background rather dark.

Roland Karlsson: Exquisite colors. Well balanced. Even the border.

And, of course, totally priceless man.

Thank you, Roland! He's not rich materially, but spiritually, a happy and healthy man of the land he lives on.

In reply to:

Xiaomao: K-5 scored 83% in 2010, K-5 II (s) scored 81% in 2013. Does it mean a step backward? Anyway, I prefer what K-5 IIs delivers.

Thank you very much for the reply!
K-5 IIs has been with me for 2 months, I find the upgrade from K-5 worthwhile, though your review doesn't highly recommend it.

On Review in progress: Pentax K-5 II and K-5 II S article (42 comments in total)
In reply to:

zos xavius: I don't care what anyone says. I have a k-5, and the k-5 IIs is pretty enticing to say the least. Better AF, no AA filter. They took an amazing camera and made only improvements on it. Good job. I realize this is just a holdover camera until the k-3 comes on-line. I just hope and pray they keep the same good, almost retro looks of the k-5, and bring a lot more improvements. For aps-c the nikon d7100 is going to be pretty hard to beat. Especially for the low price they are selling it for.

I've been happy and surprised to find how K-5 IIs is better in terms of sharpness, noise control, focus speed, ..., as compared with K-5. I just can't wait for the much-rumored K-3.

pen araneae: This is actually a moth.

Thank you very much, Pen! I made a mistake. It is a moth. I think it is one of the arthropods.

In reply to:

Wildbegonia: Very nice too. Love cats but my heart feels for the little fella, got my 5 *s too.

Wild, thank you very much for your voting! I'm glad you like it. The cat was actually playing with the mouse, in a merciless way! He either bit the mouse or tossed it, and I was the witness of the scene. Pity that I didn't have enough time to boost the speed of the camera and the image is blurred.
Happy New Year!

It is called "pink clouds stone", or "rosy pork stone". It is actually scrunched ferruginous kaolinite, mainly found in Liuzhou county, China. It looks like pork and it is believed to symbolize good fortune and good luck by the local people.
krym49's reply is the best one! Congratulations!

Thanks a lot for your comment, Louis! I was an early bird for this capture, getting up at 6 a.m. and rushed to the sight in 15 minutes before sunrise
