I know they are a little simple in composition, especially "Dented", but I loved the tones and shades of blue...
These are from the K10D at ISO100 with the 16-45
I added a bit of film grain to them but it dis'nay show up too well on the web versions. (sorry, I like grain )
The K10D is stellar at 100, great look of film right outta the box!
I kinda think these shots have a Kodachrome64 look... maybe not, I've never used that film, I'm only guessing by some K64's I've seen.


Anyhooo....

"Dented"



"Boat Launch - Lake Huron"

Dear Joshua,
If they were K64 pix, you wouldnt see any grain! Never mind, I know what you mean, & yes they have got the look of kodak slide film,
becos there is so much blue!, & i like them.

For me, Boat Launch is a near perfect picture. Simplicity itself, wonderful composition, superb light, beautifully exposed, and one of those picture opportunities that most of us would have just not realised was there.

And on top of all that, it has a quality of expectancy, of latent possibility. You feel something is about to happen (or perhaps has just happened), but you don't know what. The tension is palpable.

Stunning, Josh. Well done.

Very nice pictures Josh epsecially the second one

Can you give us a link to the original sized images so i can compar your lense 16-45 with shots taken with my kit lense the 18-55
This Pic has been saved several times in JPEG so quality has deteriated. The original in RAW is excellent.

Glad you like it - the light was so strong that I could only get correct exposure of the face if the chest was slightly over exposed.

Will probably try a greater DOF next time.

The full size original looks better this is just a 640x480

Yes see what you mean Liam the focas is centered towards the eyes which is ideal. What i was trying to say was its a shame the nose and mouth area are not in focus also. Thats only a very minor point and a personal opinion. Other than that is a goog picture except the exposure but you could maybe it this in Photoshop if you wish.

Cheers Pete

Quite right I had'nt noticed the nose and mouth - keep glaring at those eyes

I'll try it again this year and use F11 (or so) instead - I think 2.5 was a little too open for it.

Comments always appreciated.

Just how I like it!

How can I learn if nobody tells me where I'm going wrong.

Keepi it comming - I'll post a couple more when I've put the K10D through its paces in a couple of weeks time
