I like the way they are driving the speedboat backwards
The lens look good and sharp at f/8 but the k-5 seems to struggle in bright sunlight. I'm not sure if these are from RAW or JPG, but you have the Contrast set to +2 which is too high for bright sunlight. I'm not sure if that effects the RAW files as well as JPGs.

Algi, I all ways use raw, I have noticed that in bright sunlight you can have a problem, posible because we are not used to it in this country.

That's true Your shots are also being reduced to 800mm by the forum software 800 wide is the preferred width, but if anyone wants to see them 900 wide clicking on them should open them in another tab.
