DA*55 Photos of San Jose Del Cabo

My short trip to Baja, Mexico coincided with the annual Festival in the Centro Historico downtown area of San Jose Del Cabo. San Jose, founded in 1730, is the oldest city on the Baja Peninusla.

The festival gave me an opportunity to try out the new DA*55 lens with my K20D. While I only spent a few hours on two different afternoons walking around the festivities, I tried to test this lens shooting a range of different subject matter and in different lighting conditions.

Original images all shot in RAW and converted using CS3 to jpegs for posting on Blogger. Other than setting my white and black points (levels) on several images, I did not do any additional processing to these images.
