That is an excellent shot, tuco, but part of me will always wonder how much better it would be without the grass in the foreground.

Stand development in Rodinal has been problematic for me on 120 roll in the past ( random uneven development). But I've been working on an initial agitation method with success lately. It's a convenient way to develop different films in the same tank when I shoot at box speed.

But then I get this. The dark vertical bands common to the highlights in the window which looks a lot like bromide drag but Rodinal doesn't have bromide in it. Geesh...

P67, 67 55/4, 100ACR, full moon rule for exposure

Thanks. I wanted a longer exposure but I was maxed out on filters. The idea is that a blurry foreground and blurry sky focuses your attention on the only thing in the scene - those fence posts. Did it do that?

I must say that the exposure meter in this camera is one of the best! The "big guy" just keeps on exceeding my expectations! Almost no editing needed with this image. Pentax 645N II, Pentax smc FA 645, 75mm f/2.8 Canyonlands National Park, Utah
Great photo! I've heard amazing things about the meter in that camera, would love to own one. Too bad they're not still in production.

The above shot is beautiful despite its tiny flaws.

As for the previous shot, my eyes were drawn to the road as well, which is probably why the slightly obscured roadway from the foreground grass is bothering me. But I think that's a Me thing, not a you thing. The shot is brilliant

Thanks again. It was an experiment.

Alvord Desert, Oregon. Pictures on the wall at this place showed single engine aircraft filling up at the pump.

[RANT WARNING]And now the BLM wants to restrict access to this area and collect its own tax (without public approval) from us in the form of "fees" to access our own public land. But worse, it now means you now have to enforce this policy and fine people for trespassing on public land without a permit; whereas, the land was free before and you didn't have to worry about being a criminal plus you didn't have a waste tax payer money on an enforcement policy, maintaining 4WD vehicles and extra personnel etc. [/RANT WARNING]

I think the grass inthe foreground, with some (presumably wind) motion blur, really adds something to the whole composition.
