The Pentax' First Outing - My Tuesday shots 05/04

Having recently taken delivery of a new Pentax camera last weekend was my first chance to take it out for some test shots. There are two lenses in play here, an 18-55 and a 50-200.

ISO: 400
Exposure: 1/100 sec
Aperture: 5.6
Focal Length: 47.5mm

Macro shots have always been amongst my favourites so I started with the 18-55  lens, cranked the aperture to f5.6 took some close-up shots.

ISO: 400
Exposure: 1/180 sec
Aperture: 4.5
Focal Length: 21.2mm
Flash Used: Yes

This shot is of a footpath under a railway, taken in bright sunlight through the contrasting tunnel was very dark. I used the flash to lighten the tunnel and I'm somewhat pleased with the result.

ISO: 400
Exposure: 1/320 sec
Aperture: 7.1
Focal Length: 62.5mm

Finally I took this at range using the 50-200 lens. I wanted the horse as the main subject as well as the hills in the background. May be next time I'd use a different aperture but overall I was very happy with the results, and I hope you enjoy the images.
