I decided to rescan, re-edit, and recompile my Crater Lake Pentaptych.
This is made up of 5 individual 6x4.5 film frames, each one cropped slightly to fit with the adjacent frame. I think I got better alignment as well as more consistent scanning.

Good stuff, nice work Colton!

I am just starting out in large format (shot film in general for about a year now). It is a whole lot of fun and I have a huge amount to learn.

I just received some expired (2 years old) TMAX 400 film today, so I loaded up a couple of film holders and went out after work today to see if the film was any good. I developed in HC-110(h) and rated the film at 250 ISO. The film works, but it is much more grainy than I thought it would be. Maybe it is the developer. I need to mix up another batch of Xtol to see if that does better.

Anyway, here are two I shot and developed today, both shot with a red filter with an oncoming storm. Both were shot on my Zone VI 4x5 camera with a red (25A) filter.

Those are very good. The second one really stands out in it's detail.

Really lovely quality to this, Colton, and I like the windowed panorama. The blues are amazing, and the softness of the distant shores. Really nice images.

Fantastic, Colton! My parents were just there... Have yet to hear their take on the place, but my dad has been wanting to go for years (or decades), so I imagine it lives up to its reputation.

Wow thats so much better Colton and I didn't think the first needed anything! The reds of the dirt pop and you got more of the mountains out of the background. Now you just have to find a big enough wall.

ColoradoCJ Xtol completely blew me away. I wasn't even diluting it since I had 5L of it and ended up using it quite quickly. Throw it when it goes yellow though...

All I can say is wow. Great job! That is a fantastic set, how you set it up. I'd love to see 5 big canvas prints of this on a wall!
