I dunno. I was just experimenting playing around with the extension tubes for close up. And I really have mixed feelings with this shot. The neighbor kids were out working in the yard last summer and volunteered. The image was cropped just a little.

Interesting crop and shot... The background figure echos the foreground figure, and he seems to be looking toward the foreground figure, drawing the viewer's eye the same way.

I got that same lens inexpensively a while back but haven't yet used it. Surprising how much smaller it is than the 165/2.8. Looks like a good performer?

The lens does okay. Look on page 60 and I have two portraits shown using it. One is outdoors with flash fill utilizing the higher flash sync of the leaf shutter for daylight balance.

Tuco the sand in your last one is amazing.

I don't have much to contribute right now but I have been going through all my past 67 shots for a calender project and came across one I had pretty much forgot I had taken.
This was the 4th frame from the very first roll I ever ran through a 67. I was testing a 67II that got me hooked but I eventually sold. I used the money I made from it to repair my current 67, 45/4, and 90/2.8 setup. This was also one of the first frames I scanned on my Epson V500.

Thanks. Is that lake in Oregon?

Thanks. The OOF guy in the background didn't think too much of it and I don't blame him

Last Saturday, I went snow-shoeing and I took my GW690 for a spin as I did not get the chance to shoot more than a roll with it.

I was using Kodak TriX320 in order to shoot hand held.
I then forget that it was 320TX and developed in Pyrocat HD thinking it was Across
I had a shot with incredible Makie lines but two other shots did not come too bad.
I think that I should sell some of my 35mm and use MF all the time.






Cheers,

Luc

Those look great. What is the time difference for those films in Pyrocat?

the film was shot at 1250 with incident metering
developed in pyrocat hd 1+1+100 for 18' at 20~21c

I would have expected no detail in the shadows


Cheers,

Astronomers calculated the date Van Gogh made his painting of the moon rising. The relative positions of the Sun, Moon, and Earth were the same on the date in July 2003 when this photo was shot of a moonrise at sunset. Not in France, as for the painting, but overlooking the Kittitas Valley of central Washington State.
There's some smoke in the air from two fires in the canyons at the other end of the valley.

I'm getting to like your style of shots, from what I have seen so far. Another nice one.

Some great shots being posted in this thread. Nice to see some 645D shots showing up.

Nice shot Colton, lovely scene.
I can't wait to get out and do some 'real' landscape shooting with my 67. I just ordered the 55/4 lens and folding focus hood to go with it. Have a trip to NZ planned in April, will see how I go over there.

Oh, duh. It was late, I was tired and I didn't catch the word "had". I thought you just bought the gear.
It wasn't late (for me) and I wasn't tired, but I still missed that point in the same manner

Nice. Looks like somewhere along I-82. Shots like that are challenging to get both detail in the moon and land like Ansel Adam's Moonrise Over Hernandez.

Nice portrait, really well done. Why do you have mixed feelings? Only slight problem would be the pentagram on the background person's lip. But that's looking for something.

What is the effect of the tube here, btw? Never thought they could be used for portraits (don't have one, never did, so could not try).

Thanks, yes, that's I-82 zig-zagging up the hill (Manastash Ridge)
