Re: Clunes Town Hall

Mick, your 65mm + CF lens would eat this scene very nicely. And the flagpole would fit in too. It may be heresy but I've shot architecture with lenses wider than strictly necessary and then cropped heavily. No one notices. A 4x5 negative is very generous and even if three quarters of it is thrown aw...

Re: Round Silo, Lake Cargellico

The 65mm + CF strikes again, and beautifully. Perfect simple composition with that excellent double wavy white line carrying the horizon line across the face of the silo.

Re: Murdering Creek, Logs and Snags.

Ah, Mick, to burn or not to burn; that is the question. This photograph is an 8x10 contact and the bright branches are very small so I let them go almost to paper-base white. The (good/bad) excuse behind this is that the viewer would not expect to see detail in such a small area and won't complain w...

Re: Motorcycle Outfit

Mick, the 250mm lens seems to suit your photographic vision. Remember the perfect picture of Plough in Rain back in January was done with a Fujinon-W 250mm f6.3 lens while Motorcycle Outfit used a Fujinon 250mm f6.7. Is this f6.7 lens the legendary one, the one with outside lettering, the one in hig...

Re: Sedge Field, Coolum.

Thanks Mick. Every sedge stem is resolved out on the 8x10 negative. It doesn't happen with small formats. And it doesn't happen on breezy days either. Standing in water? Nah, not that heroic. There's a nice boardwalk out from the carpark.

Re: Large Format Fun

Ah, Mick you noticed an old trick: " Interesting gap between the background and subjects ." The camera has been pre-focussed so that anyone leaning against the wall and the grey backdrop will come out sharp; no need to get back under the focussing cloth. The lens already has the correct sh...
