  • Thanks, Rick! Much appreciated. :-) Phil
  • I suspect that these are some logs put in the stream bed to ensure that it stays wide enough at this bend. This stream is sort of a drainage. Yeah, I'm not too optimistic for the good ole' K10D, ...
  • Thanks for the info! As jeanphilippe already pointed out: it must be hard to follow a bird with that lens. Congrats again for your captures! Phil
  • Thanks for the info. I just can imagine. :-) Phil
  • Thanks! I did a lot of different shots at different focal lenghts, and this rather close crop - omitting the top part of the tree - turned out to be the most interesting IMO. Thanks for looking! Phil
  • Thanks, Dean. Didn't we all have one? :-) In fact it was a thread here on the forum that prompted me to look for a used K10. I loved its low ISO output - as demonstrated e.g. here ...
  • Wow, impressive captures! I like them. Which lens did you use? EXIF says 600mm? Phil
  • Thanks! Glad you like it. Structure was the main thing here, color unimportant - so the pic really cried for a b&w treatment ... Also thanks! It's in excellent condition, and really big compared to ...
  • Created photos The furious tree
    ... saw this specimen on my Sunday outing today. No leaves yet, but spring isn't far - was the first warmer day in this year. Leaves will come soon to this beauty: Taken with my "new" used K10D ...
  • I suspected this ... :-) Thanks for your clarification. Thinking about getting one sometime ... Phil
  • No, you're definitely not ... I took several series of 20 each, but only around 5 of this one were sharp enough (the others weren't good at all - wrong focus and/or aperture). Wonder what caused ...
  • I concur! Great capture. I was by chance on my way to try the same thing - got a foto club assignment to take a picture of the moon. I also chose the Q7 - but since I don't have a 400mm lens I had ...
  • Wow! I think your result is already very good. Looks like a hyper-realistic painting somehow. Great idea! Thanks for sharing your result. Glad to! And thanks for inspiring me in return. :-) Phil
  • Nice! :-) I think I like the DNG version best. I am very interested to hear how the GR handles ultra long exposures. Battery drain, longest exposure you achieved, resulting noise etc. pp. It's ...
  • Thanks! I sure know. Even have one of those overpriced original release cables from Ricoh, but didn't have it with me. So B or T was not an option that evening - setup on the small tripod wasn't ...
  • Thanks! RAW, developed in Lightroom -  slightly cropped on bottom and left side, BTW. Phil
  • Thanks! Glad you like it, Rube. :-) Phil
  • This one is pushing the GR to its limits. It was fully dark, around 9:45 pm in the winter. There was very little illumination. Only a street lamp further away and around the corner of the street ...
  • Thanks! DNGs, developed with Lightroom. For me the GR has turned out to be a versatile and very fast camera which is totally unobtrusive in everyday use. I had somewhat of a learning curve until I ...
  • Yesterday evening I strolled through a small town with a quite dominant church. There was some snowfall earlier, and most pavements and streets were wet from it. I had the GR and a small tripod ...
