Confused of Malvern's recent activity

  • Created discussion thread K5 Upgrade?
    Is it worth upgrading from my K5 to a K3, if I can get a good used one at a sensible price? I've been perfectly happy with my K5 and I held off upgrading sooner whilst I invested in lenses instead. ...
  • OK, the better way to achieve long exposures without having to use such a very small aperture would be to use a neutral density (ND) filter
  • Diffraction is a characteristic of the sensor size, when used with lenses at small apertures. I don't think diffraction is the issue with these shots.  Whilst f13 is getting towards the limit, I ...
  • So, you're not a Pentax fan then?  Fine.  Go buy something else.  I don't see why you feel the need to have a rant about it
  • Tom The green button has nothing to do with auto focus.  The green button is connected to metering/exposure and is used to take a meter reading in M mode or, when using either the Green (auto) mode ...
  • Thank you for your kind comments, Larry
  • Thank you, Jim.  Yes, the K5 still does the business.  I keep wondering whether there would be any advantage in upgrading to a K3 (there have been a number of second hand ones available since the ...
  • Thanks, Chris. Yes, it's a good location in that regard.
  • Many thanks, Miles
  • Thanks, Paul.  I was lucky to be in the right place at the right time for once.   You're right about the Tower of London but unfortunately there were parts of the bridge (and another photographer) ...
  • Submitted a challenge entry Sunset, River Thames

  • Created photo thread River Thames - Sunset
    One from this weekend......taken on Friday evening while I was up in London. 3 shot panorama taken with K5 and DA 15mm looking upstream from Tower Bridge. Comments & Critiques welcome. Best viewed ...
  • Excellent images.  Thanks for sharing

  • Thanks JD Broadway Tower and Morgans have a similar sense of whimsy about them but the Tower was built in much older :-)
  • Replied in Many Thanks
    Many thanks for your various helpful comments. I can see that the vertical framing is a stronger composition and indeed I do have other shots taken in that format from slightly different angles. I ...
  • Created photo thread Infrared - C&C Welcome
    I've recently had my old camera body permanently converted to Infrared (720nm filter) with the intention of using this mainly for B+W landscapes.  I'm still on a learning curve in terms both of ...
  • Wayne / John Thank you both for taking the trouble to reply.  Yes, I could do as you suggest and indeed I have shot infrared that way in the dim and distant past but that wasn't really my question. ...
  • Created discussion thread ND Filters and Infrared
    I've recently had one of my cameras permanently converted to infrared (with a 720nm filter) with the intention of mainly doing B+W infrared shots. I like taking long exposures in order to blur the ...
  • I'm not familiar with the settings on a Canon and so can only talk from my experience with Pentax but the principles will be the same... and it all depends on what you shoot and how you prefer to ...
