have a shit ton more, just been shooting with it for a few months though.
Now would that be a metric or imperial sh*t ton? Great series. That guy doing the arc welding really likes to play it safe too, lol.

Many great photos here! I hope I can add a few soon. I recently purchased a 645NII and 5 lenses (all A series manual focus)...the 35, 55, 75, 120 macro and 150. Camera and lenses should be delivered next week. I'll try to get out and take some photos to post here soon. Thanks for the inspiring images folks!

Nice glamor, Latex. Looks like the new camera will be a keeper.

Pardon my cutesy farm shots of my wife and friends, but these show what I love about medium format. The first is barely cropped, the second more, and the last one is little more than 35mm. The 645 holds its own. The film, however, is soon to be discontinued Fuji 160s 220.

Nice use of what appears to be the reflection off the camera.

Thanks Gene. Love the sharpness of your images! What is up with those film manufacturers?! Don't they understand they NEED to just keep making their stuff for us!! Time to buy a big freezer I guess...

Here's a little different mood. On XP2 film.
Internet boards don't really do MF justice, since we reduce an 8000 pixel wide negative scan to 800 pixels.

dont mean to give unwanted crit, you should have put in a blue or yellow/red filter to bring out some contrast (depending how you want to tone what i guess).

so here's a few i took today at a rally against wars...or stuff in general i guess:

not particularly good, but something that bears posting:

Assuming that was meant for me, I appreciate the suggestion, and I've noted that a different filter might have helped another shot I posted on another thread shot on a different film. I was not thrilled with this film, Ilford XP2, as it was processed. This was one of only a couple of shots that I liked from the day. One either likes this photo for what it is or not, because I doubt that filters would have changed much in this particular instance. This film was flat, flat, flat.

The scene with the jogger consisted of various levels of tan/brown plus the jogger in blue-gray tights and dark blue top. A yellow filter might have darkened her tights a bit, and might have darkened the very small amount of sky visible. I think blue might have been counterproductive. With a chromogenic B&W film like XP2 and the brown desert winter colors of the scene, any effect that filters might have imparted would be very subtle and difficult to judge in advance. The original photo does convey the feeling of the scene. On the other hand, it might have also been nicer in color.

This being the digital age, we do have other tools for changing local contrast (for purely educational purposes), and creating a slightly different look.

I know how it is. I shot a roll of FP4 which was supposed to be somewhat contrast-y and most the roll came out like flat despite what were some otherwise good shots. I've just kicked myself for not having the color filters because I'm cheap and didn't get them.

Yeah, digital touch up is a must do. I can't imagine posting straight scans if only for dust. I normally just do a little level touch up on my other shots (my scanner gives a reddish cast to color film) in addition to some sharpening.
