Good composition for this shot, the bokeh is okay as it keeps the leaves from being distracting, and the railings lead you into the subject, IMHO

Thank you for the kind words, DickC! This is my first roll shot on square format, I'm not yet sure whether I prefer it to 6x4.5 or 6x7, but it definitely made me think more about composition.

Good deal. The square frame has some unique properties to it. You can create a circular movement with vertical lines, for example. And some of the rules about position in the frame do not apply to a square frame as does a rectangle one. If you don't remember them from any art classes you may have taken, it would be a good time to brush up on it.

EDIT: Here is a prior post playing around with the square frame on my 500C/M and 100ACR.

I'm familiar with most of the rules and compositional tricks (indeed thanks to an art elective from 6 years ago), however this one I don't know. Could you elaborate on that?

Very nice star trail shot by the way, indeed one that works really well in square format

Thanks.

Well, I can't find the link with the example I had in mind. But it's similar to examples using horizontal lines to divide the frame into sections such a horizon plus ocean edge. It's square so the concept works vertically too.

Rolleiflex 3.5, Lomo 400 (can't believe how good this Lomo 120 film looks. Came in a 3-pack for...cheap.)

Wow, very nice indeed.

I'm fairly certain it's Superia 400, which has been discontinued by Fuji in 120, leaving just Pro 400H (amazing film). You might want to stock up.

You haven't had any of the infamous Lomo 120 problems of the backing paper marks showing through on the film?

I will try to stock up indeed.

Haven't had the paper show through but I have had the end of the roll stick to the spool (had to free it in a dark closet). Sometimes there's an adhesive strip at the end, sometimes not (and I guess sometimes it wraps back around the spool).

Great shot, btw. Never thought about trying to fit filters on the rolleiflex.

Yes, my bad forgetting about your Rolleiflex. But perhaps one day you will have a different camera. I have some Rollei filters in yellow, orange and red for my old Rolleicord. So you can still find some.
