That's very impressive for a Lomo and 6x12 to boot!

Phil.
Thanks Phil.
It's kinda interesting shooting with a camera like this, I find you can't take it to seriously. You just shoot and see what you end up with.
Here's another from the roll.

I think I may get there and be disappointed that they don't look as spectacular in person as they do in your black and white photographs.
Tuco's photos are very excellent, but the dunes do not disappoint in person. They are very much worth the effort to visit.

Oh yeah. I didn't notice. I have no idea but most likely from the sharpening. I applied it lightly though.
The Hologrid must be failing!!

I'm not usually one for the whole Toy Camera/Lomo thing, but ...

Belair X 6-12, 90mm @f/16, expired Kodak T400CN
Looks pretty good.

It is easy to dismiss these cameras but they can get people out shooting film for fun fairly inexpensively. I have a Holga 120N that I ran some rolls through and haven't shot it since. I must say to get good exposures on that camera for conditions that fall outside of its two apertures and one fixed shutter speed actually puts you to the test of the fundamentals.

Dramatic in a good way I hope?

I thought I might like to go to the dunes someday, but on second thought, I think I may get there and be disappointed that they don't look as spectacular in person as they do in your black and white photographs.
Steve's got that right. Don't pass up a chance to visit if the opportunity presents itself. And to make it easy, a good introduction would be to start with the John Dellenback Dunes Trail. That section is for hiking so you won't have to compete with dune buggies.

Ha. It wasn't on the scan so I put in in there somehow. Speaking failing, my monitor is going bad. Crap.

That is a nice result!

How large was your scanned tiff file on that 6x12? My 6x9s are enormous and a little slow to work with on my cpu.

Very nice shots here recently! Really like that 6x12 format, Colton. And Kris, very nice tones and composition.

Winter is here, and itīs quite boring when the light is usually very flat. Anyway, hereīs some shots from the shores of Helsinki with my frozen bronica.

I've just scanned 1200dpi jpegs so far.
I might try a 2400 tiff to see if I can squeeze a little more out but at 2400dpi it will be over 50 megapixels, a tiff will be huge.

Great link! What is also cool is the very extensive series of lakes behind the dunes. Flatwater kayak heaven!
