A few more experiments with Acros 100... I'm still getting a feel for what the B/W approach gives me in this hardscrabble landscape--subject isolation remains a challenge!

I love the forest shots. Great detail and tones. Really fine. The first one has lovely depth. The second has a bit more mystery with the reverse tones added with the lighter tree trunks. Good work. Keep at it!

So you're using a 6X7 film camera now? Must be a very nice light load to carry down the trail!!!

The light in #1 really makes it stand out for me!

Thanks for the kind words, gents.

BTW, Mole, I had my first "mid-life crisis" a few months back when UPS delivered a new backpack--in the midst of bending stays and otherwise customizing the fit, it occurred to me: "Hey, I'm never going to buy another pack this big in my life."

I have to agree totally with what Jacquot said. The detail in #2 is astounding!

Thanks, Dewman--those big 6x7 negatives hold a lot of information even down-sampled for the Web. (Fine-grained films like Acros catch a lot of light, too...a different kind of cat from the old Tri-X 400 I used back as an undergrad!)
