    I feel this would make the case for an image that breaks all "rules": tilted background/not neatly straight or divided in thirds etc. But it's beautiful. There are no rules.

    A 16x20 print from 4x5 negative (Portriga Rapid III, selenium toned)
    Beech Forest, North Island, NZ, 1986

    This area (Te Urewera) was a National Park, but it was disestablished four years ago (this is the first I have heard of it, when I went to check the spelling). The area is now managed by the Maoris of the area. Beautiful temperate rain forests surround a incredible lake (Lake Waikaremoana). Tracks still open to visitors.

    That's a print I'd love to see in person--for some reason, the big beech in the background makes it for me...really conveys a sense of plenitude and scale.

    My first good effort with my Intrepid 8x10. Been a long break in LF-stuff and I have been feeling guilty about it. Now I'm all excited again!

    I found this mushroom when I was here with my daughter and wife and I thought it was just perfect and decided to come back to it later.

    Thank you. The actual print color is not quite so brown -- hard to replicate the color on the screen (16x20 Portriga Rapid III, Grade 3, selenium toned). Forest images are tough -- trying to bring some visual order out of the chaos. A lot of good examples here.

    I had to burn down that fern some -- a lively little thing! It is an older print. I have learned a few tricks since then (for example, I would now use some local flashing in the upper right instead of just burning), but I have moved away from silver gelatin enlargements and do mostly contacting in alt processes.

    Wildlife photography with LF? Sure, as long as that wildlife is a slug!

    Thanks for the liner notes--I've spent a lot of time afield, and it's just one of those rare images that seem to "get it."
