Recently I've been experimenting with a borrowed Pentax K5 camera body to see if there is sufficient improvement to warrant upgrading from the K10/20 bodies I've been using for about four years. (Most of the pictures posted here since last July though were made with a Panasonic GF1.) In this shot, aside from just looking at the neat old factory complex that has been re-purposed as storage units and other businesses, I was also trying to strain the ability of the camera's sensor to record a scene with very high subject brightness range. It's done really well here, holding strong detail from top to bottom. It has also done a remarkable job of holding the weird color of the shadow areas. That color resulted from very high color temperature light from a mid-day cloudless blue sky bouncing back and forth on red paint and brick walls either side of the alleyway.
