Birmingham with K7 and Samyang 135mm F2 . . . all taken today. Thank you if you enjoyed. I recovered and enjoyed shooting today. Friday was a stress trying to get something last week after a bad review post on Dpreview. Sorry if I annoyed you saying that you need a gallery in order to critique. There are a lot of reasons not to have a gallery. I was not myself when i said that and was still pretty annoyed with the bad review post. They actually had some true things to say . . BUT come on. Who can take 40 shots of stunners in an hour after work ?? Maybe David Bailey and that is all. It takes yrs to build up a gallery of landscapes. I think it was a troll. If not well they achieved the same thing as a troll. NEGATIVITY.

I am a complete novice with this forum stuff. I will have to be careful what I say. Anyway, enough of that = the monachrom Pentax is really something. Exciting. I may push the boat out this time around. early. I just love the whole concept that Pentax are so wild with this one. DPReview are a bit cruel with that news article " is it the wrong camera ... should it have been the GR " but in fairness any news article is actually good for Ricoh. See you around next time.
Kind Regards
Shoot for yourself and shoot what you like. I think that's the best way to really enjoy photography.

I bet if I showed *all* my images to people, I suspect for at least half of them they would wonder, or ask, "what did you take a picture of that for?" I have no answer other than something attracted my attention and so I photographed it. You need not apologize to any of us for posting the images you enjoy.
I have to admit I like colour but as you have demonstrated there is a mood that only B&W displays.

At Last we meet . . Hello good sir . . I have a big grin here . . pretty surreal this is. HELLO .
If I am honest some of the city shots are better in colour but mostly I prefer black and white in everything EXCEPT WILDLIFE THAT IS.

Even a bad screen with rubbish colour technology still looks loads better for wildlife photos usually.

I am late back so sorry I did not see this earlier. Watched big football game in a pub Arsenal . Helloooo Ozdean.
These from today. Nothing great today but i will try and post each day I do this in this pre K3 iii monochrome frenzy. Same Samyang lens on my K7. Sorry lots of bikes. I got carried away.

I really like the 5th one above (with the big posters on the wall in the background). It works for me.
Here are more for those not too bored with Birmingham. Rain day mostly. Taken today. These are actually at F4 and F2.8 mostly. I don't even know myself which is which exactly.

Thanks for looking. I know i posted too many. I could not decide which ones to apply CUT.

Was a lot of fun in the rain and keeping Samyang as dry as I could.
