You beat me to it by a couple of minuets John. A fine photo with no blown highlights

Still not been for the motor Decided shopping was the safer bet, +1/3 exposure looks just right.

Well framed and just right to capture the smoke detail. Nicely done!

John did you really give it 1/3rd stop over exposure. I generally give them 11/3 stop UNDER exposure to avoid blown highlights.
Nice action shot by the way.

Hi David, my K20D generally under exposes a little, depending on circumstances of course, but I've grown to know exactly when (most of the time). I prefer under to over exposure. I've been told the K7 has a slight tendency to over exposure, but I've never tried one. Just trying out the DA 17-70 bought from a PU member, it certainly has fast AF

Thanks for the kind comment.

regards,

Nice shot, John. I like the perfect colours, sharpness and the texture of the smoke.
