On scot rainbow 3 photo in OpticsEngineer's photo gallery (1 comment in total)

My wife saw the rainbow in the rear view mirror and stopped so we could take a look. As soon as the car stopped, my 7 year old daughter took off running because she was sure there would be a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. I took some quick thinking for me to yell at her that the leprechauns would see her coming and would take the gold and the rainbow away, so it was best to come back and look at the rainbow with us.

Probably was not the best idea to be pitching balls to my daughter and taking photographs with my brand Pentax 16-85 zoom lens on my K3. I put the camera away after this shot.

Visiting Scotland. Oat meal ice cream was on the menu so we got some. I liked it. My daughter... not so much

On Sony JPEG Balloons 2 photo in OpticsEngineer's photo gallery (1 comment in total)

Horrible case of JPEG smearing caused by setting the noise reduction too high. Looks like a crayon drawing by a nine year old instead of picture from the field at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta.

When winter is nearly here, the pomegranates split open so you know they are ripe. Then you see their hidden personalities.

On EM5_Zepplin Museum Germany photo in OpticsEngineer's photo gallery (1 comment in total)

Highly recommend this museum in Friedrichshafen if you are visiting with kids. Also the Dornier museum a few miles away is very good.

Forget the Schleissheim Aviation museum near Munich. Not nearly as good as these two museums if kids are involved. But in Munich, the Traffic Museum is excellent with kids.

On LF1 Bike Ride photo in OpticsEngineer's photo gallery (1 comment in total)

Taken as I am jogging along side just before the sun goes down. All the pictures came out like this. LF1 handled the "shoot while jogging" situation amazingly well.

On A look at the Lomography Petzval 85mm F2.2 lens article (166 comments in total)

Nice review. As noted a straight out Petzval is obsolete by todays standards for digital cameras. But it is still a lens that is taught in optical engineering schools because it forms the basis of many other lenses.

What castle?
That castle over there, don't you see it?
