Lost Creek Trail, May 2011

This is about 5 miles up Lolo Pass road, near Welches, Oregon.


There was a slight breeze, which shouldn't have mattered, but at F45 (to keep detail in the shadows, and also to get the nearby details sharp), I needed a 14 second exposure. The actual print is much sharper. I'm starting to notice a pattern. My print scans are much sharper when I view them very large, but a little fuzzy at normal viewing size. Anyone have any experience with this?


Camera: Deardorff 8x10.

Lens: 165mm Schneider Super-Angulon. No filter.

Film: Ilford Ortho+ developed in PMK Pyro at N+1.

Contact printed on Kentmere VC Select FB developed in Kodak Dektol.
