Hello from Switzerland


Link Posted 18/03/2010 - 20:12

I just joined to comment on a topic asking for the differences between the DFA100/2.8 and the newer WR version of the lens.

I am a Pentax (D)SLR user since I bought a MZ-5 nearly 18 years ago. Now, I am using mostly two K-7 and a Kx with a lot of lenses collected in all these years.

My main photographic domains are nature photography (landscapes, birds, wildlife, macro), and I am being addicted to southern Africa as well. But in the last few years, I tried to gain more experience by taking the camera to the events such as the Jazz Festival of Montreux or sports events.

My galleries are under pbase and flickr

Welcome, welcome. I think we would all love to see some of your photos in the Gallery and assist, if we may through constructive critiques, as you expand your experience in different venues. By giving help we also learn.

Best Regards,

I gladly welcome C & C's. Being foggy minded they really help me learn.

Thanks for all the replies.

I will certainly post series of photos on this forum. As for the gallery, I am already using pbase and flickr, I will most probably link to the photos on these galleries rather than organize them on an additional site.
