Marvelous place. Really showing through. Nice exposure. I would prefer a little more highlights but I can see that light coming through, so it’s anticipated...

Thank you for your comments. These digital renditions of printed copies, processed by someone
with my computer skills, are a sad version of the originals. The print has full detail in the shadows
under the leaves in the upper right corner, as well as the foliage of the trees on the left.

Peter, you have again managed to mesmarise your audience (again) with this masterpiece - really beautiful. The unbridled wilderness of the jungle is brought to the fore. Tonality as usual is topnotch and I appreciate that the print is probably a magnitude better the digital version you have presented here. Composition is IMHO on the dot, my eye catches the root on the right first, hops on the leaves goes up and decends back on the highlights on the right. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you Vijay. I had the opportunity to return on several occasions to Tikal and do similar work with large format. A tad more cumbersome but the results are worth every pound of extra luggage.

There is a distinct difference in value separation and presence,
a somewhat three-dimensional feel to the larger format images.
It is particularly obvious in the brightest and darkest areas

The cool thing about LF is that it is cheaper than MF- you donīt need an enlarger.
And there is NOTHING that gets even close to a LF contact print

Sir, you are the best LF enabler I have met; yet you don't speak much, your work does that!. My goodness, I must admit that this truly amazing; my jaw just dropped and took a walk. I can't even begin to fathom what would contact prints from the LF masters would look like! Please accept my heart-felt thank you for presenting this wonderful work here.
