Grand Master

by davidtrout

I've chosen low light photography as the subject for this week's competition.
Here's one I did in January in extreme lighting conditions.
The K30 was handheld
at 1/30 sec. The lens, DA*16-50mm, at its widest angle and wide open at f2.8.
ISO: 12,800. That's not a misprint, I swear the K30 is better at high ISOs than the K3 or K5.
Location: Freemason's hall at Beamish Museum.

PS This was a bitterly cold and wet day when half a dozen of us met up for a mini Pentax Forum meet.

Wonderful colour and sense of occasion, David. I do enjoy these places.
Best wishes,
