Thanks Eddie. This makes the frozen fingers less painful. ;)
Excellent colours, comp, and sharpness. Well done!
SungiBr: Ricoh is unleashing all products Hoya promissed ages ago. And took less than two years to do it.
They seems to be listening all of us pentax users, and are showing some serious commintment to pentax user base
Richard - you didn't know Pentax users have been screaming for (and dreaming of) a toy cap lens for the Q for "ages"?
This is BIG!
Much more important than, say, a TC. Or a viable extreme telephoto. Or a FF camera. Or...
Thanks, ysal. It's a whole class below Walter's (Toxiq's) winning entry, so I don't mind the placing.
Yikes! 1/2 and 1 star votes.
Hopefully this is because the voters mistakenly believed they were looking at multiple leaves. This is actually a single compound leaf.
minturnino: Finally!!!!! Great Pentax!!! While Tamron do not update the lens to Pentax Camera..... Pentax solve the gap!I hope that the cost is fair and not excessive in relation to the competition!
Hmmm... The Tamron is available for other mounts (on eBay) for $500.00. If Pentax can rebadge other companys' designs and get a 60% premium for the same lens, more power to them!
A Snapping Turtle is a TURTLE. Surprise!!!
Well, genius: Sorry to disilusion you but this IS a turtle. A female Snapping Turtle. She's returning to the marsh after laying her eggs.
Thanks for the compliments.
DeedleD: I used single (center point) AF with the camera in CAF. I'm able to get near 100% in focus shots of a 20 shot sequence of my dog running directly at me once the focus locks on.
Too bad the head is soft.
I thought this would have finished even higher. Excellent composition and subject. A bit more DOF would have made this a top three shot in my opinion.
got my highest vote. Excellent composition and exposure.
I love the ear tufts on your European squirrels!
Just an all-round excellent photo, Walter.
Congratulations on the well deserved win!
I appreciate the comment. I really wanted to add a border and the text that Audubon would have used, but it wasn't allowed.
