Camera: Pentax K-30
Lens: Pentax DA 70mm f/2.4 Limited
Location: Marin County, CA
Date: Jan 12, 2014
Aperture: f/22
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/5 sec.
Date Uploaded: Jan 13, 2014

Another blur experiment. Came out pretty much as visualized. Was lucky to get a cloudless day to play with. Midday shot so not as much tonal range as I might have achieved and had to work with a pretty fast shutter speed, but still relatively happy with the result. Needless to say, I expect this to get destroyed by the voters. :)

Lens was the 70mm limited stopped all the way down plus a 1.7x teleconverter and a polarizer and under exposed 2 or 3 stops, but still couldn't get below 1/5 sec. About a 50% crop from the center of the image.

Wonder if anyone will catch the double meaning in the title.

This one started out with a 7 and after 20 votes I was still hanging around 6.75. Surprised the heck out of me, but then the long expected decline -- down to 6.25 after 40 votes, hung there for a while, and now its just trying to keep its head above a 6. Fingers crossed it stays there, but either way did better than I expected with the voters.

My highest score too, but I maybe a bit biased, as it's something I also love to shoot.

I originally gave you an 8, now it's a 9. I get lost in it. Who knows what it will be if I come back again, ha

I love the softness of this. Would REALLY love a bit of "punch" in the colors.

But... I'm shallow that way... *grin*
