Re: My first 8x10 - Eveleigh Railway Yard machinery

I think you could do with a higher placement of the low values in order to increase the tonal separation in the machinery itself.

Re: First images from my home made camera!! :D

Re: The 8x10 is ready to see duty .....

John, No need for a cognac or a discussion. The bellows are not saggy and do not impinge on the image forming projection of the lens. I'll either be using the 8x10 conversion kit on the 4x5 to increase marketability or I'll be putting it aside, as you've commented, until I devise or get access to a ...
