Pentax K7 with Tamron 90mm macro

December 2nd, 2009

I was playing with my Nikon and doing some test shots in low light when my father-in-law left his Pentax K7 on the dinning table. I took the opportunity to take this picture.

Nikon D90, AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G and Adobe Photoshop CS4.

Wow, I love this shot! It has great composition and depth. I love how you had the lens leading out to the lower left corner. This picture also has a lot of sharp detail. Great job! I am hoping for a Nikon D90 for Christmas, and I hope that I will be able to take shots as good as this one!

Wonderful shot! The D90 is a great camera, I have it myself. How is the 35mm? I have been looking at it myself ^^

You don't honestly think I'll put a background of a camera on my desktop. I honestly don't know why anyone would.

Beautiful capture! It has great sense of texture and detail. I can almost feel the focus ring on that lens.

@Hrisebro The 35mm is fantastic. I don't think I've taken that lens off my old D40 since I bought it (bought the lens, not the camera :P).

Fantastic! I loved it when I first saw it in the loupe! I love Nikkor primes, I already have the 50mm for my D90 and plan on getting the 35mm soon.

How much did Pentax pay IFL to headline this little gem? Probably not as much as Apple, I would assume.

Hi all and thanks you your comments! It really feels good to have my first photo published on Interfacelift - which means that some of you people really like it. I appreciate it - thank you!

Hopefully there will be some more nice images on the public side of IFL :)

p.s. I love this 35-mm lens because it's so sharp. Travis, I hope you'll get your D90 for Christmas!

Couple of people asked me by e-mail which camera settings I used.

I took this shot at f/1.8 @ 35mm and exposure time of 1/40, ISO 1600 (Nikon D90 does a great jobb with noise-reduction at high ISO values).

I wouldn't use this as a background, but its definitely a nice, sharp, black on black picture.

I'll download this right after I use my hand vac to clean my upright vac and put the microwave inside the oven.

You know, this isn't my kind of image, simply because I love pictures but don't actually take any. But this should certainly please a lot of people who come to this website. And it is well shot. Honestly.

This would make a great desktop background....if it was a Canon ;)
Seriously, I really like this. The contrast is lovely.

IFL has become a joke... there have got to be hundreds of brilliant loupe pics and this gets chosen over them... unbelievable. What a shame.

It appears that my comment has been rated as immature. This sight must be populated with the most boring people if they think this is a suitable background. It is a decent picture but maybe you should send it to an online electronic store or something. I'd say just about every background on this site would be more suitable than this.

P.S. Go on, rate it immature if you don't like hearing the truth. Still love the site though.

bazman05-

Your comment was rated immature because it was. Your statement had no meaning other than to cause trouble. Not only is the photo good for technical reasons, but people on this site are frequently interested in things like photography and cameras. I'd imagine a good many people on this site (yes, it's spelled site) will be using this wallpaper.

You should probably consider that not everyone has the same interests or disinterests as you. Another thing to keep in mind...it got voted from the Loupe, so obvious someone wants it.

And so the hunted becomes the hunter. Excellent shot.

I have no interest in cameras but find the composition of this picture intriguing to the eye. Some people perhaps want only cookie cutter landscapes every day, now that's boredom.

PoopChef, Apparently you don't care about what a picture contains if you call pieces here "cookie-cutter landscapes". The purpose of a wallpaper is for exactly what it contains, not the technique. This may show some understanding of composition, but it is not interesting to look at simply because what it contains is not appealing.

And beyond that, landscapes and nature images speak beyond the photograph, recording a piece of the world. This communicates a message almost masturbatory in nature. It isn't intriguing to look at on any level beyond love for a product, and a sense of wanting. It doesn't attempt to go to the level of contemplation that most IFL photos go to.

Wow... Lots of different opinions on this one.. :) I wouldn't use it as a computer background but it's truly a nice crisp image.. Nice work!

Not my style of shot for a background. An interesting and fun choice for a personal submission. I found that the print on the end of the lens being out of focus kept drawing my eyes to it rather than the overall subject.

On a personal note after seeing this that may be cool for the future is to take this clean image and then take another with a "lived in" look with the smudges and dirt after a days work. Before and after at its finest.

Too many complaints towards the comments of others that do not do any good other than to make yourselves look foolish. Comments here whether they are good or bad help the person that placed the submission. Everyone likes what they like for their own reasons and as such should respect the comments of others. I did not see one original comment that was childish in nature or a straight flame of the shot. Responses on the other hand claiming childishness actually were and did nothing but clutter up this thread with useless remarks.

Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, but what gets me are the people who only make negative comments. Never mind the dozens of great photos they download without saying anything, but heaven forbid one comes up that's a bit below par or not to their taste and suddenly they feel the need to share their opinion.

I like having nice dark tones photos...regardless of the content...bring about a unique felling in me. Hence, an imaginative shot to say the least. Will put it on my 2000+ rotating images that have come from this amazing website.

Keep them coming my fellow enthusiasts :D

Sinjun Balabanoff,

Your taste is not the same as everyone else's, nor is it superior (thankfully). Your coming in and offering criticism which is not constructive is nothing but trolling, if you can't see that than get a brain.

Stop overanalyzing what should be considered good, this is a site to make your monitor look nice after all, not art school. You derive more joy out of trolling around than you ever could by simply enjoying a website at face value.

You're one of hundreds of drone commenters who proclaim how they can't stand something here and have nothing interesting to offer the artist or anyone else for that matter.

...and that's funny that you agreed with what Mercyflush64 said given that his last paragraph offered derision to people taking issue with other people's comments and not offering constructive criticism if they don't like a submission (which sums you up nicely). I guess you really are short on neurons.

"IFL has become a joke... there have got to be hundreds of brilliant loupe pics and this gets chosen over them... unbelievable. What a shame."

I somewhat agree. This photo is beautiful, but not one I'd have as a desktop wallpaper. There are loads of great photos in the loupe, that I can't download because of ones like this being selected.

Could you swap the cameras around, and photograph the D90?

Hey I like it! I'd be proud of that if it were mine (not that I'm a photographer). I also like the content.

And don't mind what some of the negative people are saying. To them I say it's ok to give constructive critisism, but to just write comments like "I hate it" or "It's not my style" or "stupid content" is lame and unnecessary and worthy of an immature tag! People are sharing their work free of charge out of the kindness of their heart and all you can do is attack them for it. If you don't like it, we don't need to know your opinion unless you've got something constructive to offer on how you think the photographer could improve their work. If offering this you should also be polite, respectful and friendly. Is that too much to ask?

"IFL has become a joke.."

I guess IFL has, by dint of their awesome power and fantastical mesmeric techniques, compelled me to download hundreds of lame, unimaginative images. The next time I log in I will be sure to wear my aluminum foil helmet.

If I don't care for a photo, I usually don't comment unless I think I have something constructive to offer. That's my philosophy and you have a right to yours.

Now if someone could post a nice shot of an Instamatic!!

lol @ stubulman

Anyways very nice picture, like many other said before me,
it isn't one that will appear on my desktop but,
it's a crispy clean sterile photo of machinery on a dark background.
It's a nice contrast and certainly something different than most
pics in the Loupe, although I might not have voted on this one,
well done :)

Nice photo! Just curious: how does the K-7 compare to the D90? I own the Pentax K200D and K-7, but never tried the D90 before.

I really like this, simple and very moody with the really dark tones This is almost perfect for me, just the right amount of highlights, really deep shadows, and the cropping of this image from the camera body to the tip of the lens frames it perfectly.

Even so, I just bought a new 32" LED Monitor and this is now my wallpaper and looks incredible.

Thanks so much for sharing this here.

The only thing I could timidly suggest is the DOF be increased, and I know it's hard to do given the shooting distance, (at least it would be for me), but this would have looked superb had the lens and f-stop ring numbers and 'Tamron' on the lens hood been sharp.

I would love to see another one of these here with the sharpness covering the whole camera.
