Since the Fall Season is here in PA and just about to it’s peak, I’ve been “out there” doing some practice with my Pentax camera trying to capture better Images.  This one above is pretty good.  Used a different Lens and settings while the Fall Color is still here.  Soon it will turn to all brown and drab looking.


This is located just down the road from where I live.  There is a Public Park here where all can go.  Don’t know if it even has a name.  The River is just off to the left of the Image.  The Pentax still does a good job using the Bracket method for HDR.  For this I merged 5 exposers at –2/-1/0/+1/+2 using my Paint Shop Pro X7 program.  I like color.


This is my 1st try and shooting some Sunsets.  What I had to do here is have the camera on a Tripod with a slow ISO.  I also used a Pentax Remote Shutter.  Came out pretty good, but it could be better.  Practice is what it takes.


Here I’m running out of light, so I took a good educated guess at what settings to use.  It’s not easy trying to remember all of what you have been told or read in books and magazines.  This is one of the reason’s I “get out there.”


Thanks for stopping by.

I am 75 yrs. young and now retired. I worked in the Machinist Trade for 24 yrs. Served in the US Navy with a Tour of Duty in Vietnam. Being retired I do enjoy Photography with my Nikon and Pentax Camera's, snooping around in Historic and Abandoned places, using my Scroll Saw, Reading, Travel, riding a bicycle on the many Trails that are around my area, and what-ever else will interest me at the time. Come with me and see where I go, where I have been, and my Life surviving Retirement.

One thought on “PRACTICE

  1. Les, you may not have known what you were doing in some of these, but you done good. Using better grammar, these are great photos, and I think I’m going to reblog if I can figure out how to do it with this format, the one I hate so much.
