      Excellent! Is it a crop or a 6X12 roll film shot?
      Anyway, I think you may consider shooting BW also - now that the doom of Fuji is upon photographic world..

      It's a 4x5 but I use a black plastic mask on the 4x5 to visualise the 6x12 result.

      Great textures and tones and a composition that not many could achieve!

      I can't help thinking you and mono were made for each other...

      Why thank you - might try more!

      This is spot on. Tones are excellent and the composition really works for me. Glued to your photostream!

      Nice work, love the composition and overall tone of this image, the slight movement in the tree's is the cherry on top!

      As a confirmed 'monochromist' I really like this one Tim - welcome to the dark side!

      why would you want to spoilt such a wounderful image with colour.

    11. Tim Parkin 19 months ago | reply

      Oh I definitely wouldn't - but wanted to see how Portra 160 worked as a black and white film

    12. Christopher M Hight 19 months ago | reply

      and did it ?? doubt it myself

    13. Tim Parkin 19 months ago | reply

      Looks pretty good - can't say until I put them over each other - we'll see soon..

    14. Christopher M Hight 19 months ago | reply

      lookforward to seeing the results..but I am bias as I only use black and white ..Fuji neopran 100 would be good

    15. Christopher M Hight 19 months ago | reply

      having looked at the colour image aswell for me theres more depth to the black and white image

    16. Tim Parkin 19 months ago | reply

      I did a LOT of work on that black and white though.. Here's the difference..

      I think I prefer the black and white - but the colour has the edge in shutter speed to fix the branches/leaves.

    17. Christopher M Hight 19 months ago | reply

      for me personally the movment in the branches/leaves is another layer and gives something of the sprit of the wood...great on landscpe this month too
