*** June 2023 Image & Video Thread

This is the place to share your L-mount images & videos. Please note that it is not essential that the content was created during June of 2023. If it's an L-mount image or video, and you want to share it (and have not shared it before) feel free to post it here!

Other suggestions:

  • Unlike DPR, you can’t add your own title to a thread. So to add a suitable title, I’d suggest just doing a bold heading. Adding EXIF data would be a nice touch too.
  • If you can provide details on the subject, camera, settings and processing, that can provide some members useful insight as they regard in your images.
  • If you have more than 10+ images to share, please break them up into more than 1 posting.
  • Thanks for all participation whether seasoned pro or beginner… Don’t be reluctant even if you are new to photography or L-Mount!
If you especially want C&C (criticism/critique) or technique feedback, say so. It’s assumed one does want such feedback, but direct requests may garner a more studied analysis/response. If you don't want such feedback, say so, and others will respect your wishes.

If you feel you've been ignored, select your post, reply to it with a brief note to the effect of "Can I get some feedback?". Not getting feedback on a post isn't uncommon, so don't feel offended - no one is charged to ensure all posts get attention (we're not organised enough for that). If you want particular feedback (composition, exposure choice, etc.), saying so can be helpful for the potential respondents as to what your needs may be.

It is courteous and advisable that, should you post images for feedback, you also make comment on at least one other contribution. Respectful acknowledgment of everyone is the goal, and it’s requested that all participants assume some responsibility to that end.

I've been experimenting with some Vivitar glass in PK mount on my S5. I've had these lenses for many years and don't really know their condition. These three shots have been post-processed to add movement blur. The lenses are not this "bad". -)

Here are some shots without the same overt post-processing. These lenses do a fine job. Back in my Pentax days I spent a lot of time hand-picking these from a number of available options.

Love this effect, Robin! It's always fun to see the results of vintage lenses on our favorite cameras :)

Great photos Robin, I really like the way these lenses render images.
 
Last week we had a company which included a mini classic tour. I took place on the backseat of a mini cabrio with the 70-300 mounted.
While driving I tried to make the best of it, and believe me that ain't easy. Those 2 shots ended up very nice with the surroundings to enhance the scene :)
Still very happy with the 70-300 lens, which is 99% on the cam.

Well, sometimes 105 is just better with its superior optical quality, especially if you need to get closer.
