These ancient clipped yew trees are in the churchyard in Painswick, Gloucestershire, England.
Jim K, thanks a lot.
Photographing inside a forest is a new challenge for me now - so far I have only rarely shot inside a forest where the forest itself would be the subject. I think I'll have to explore that more.
Here is another one from the same outing:
Chamonix 5×8″, Schneider-Kreuznach Xenar 210mm, 13×18cm, Fomapan 100, Rodinal.
Nice ferns Jiri. I've been walking in woods and forests a lot recently and have found it a real challenge to turn out images that satisfy me. One simple problem is that it's often so dark under cover of the foliage that exposures need to be too long to freeze the waving ferns and foliage. The other challenge is literally to 'see the wood from the trees'. I know these are problems for any photographer anywhere but to me they are heightened inside woodland. So it's all the more satisfying to find an image that works.

wonderful feeling of light in your image!

This is very nice indeed, but then again I am attracted to abstract images.
If I may, I have been wanting to ask you a question for some time now. I also have seen your images on APUG as well as here on this forum.
Since you are posting on this forum, I have to assume this image was captured with a large format camera. (Or are you just using LF sized film?) Given the nature of your "fuzzy/out of focus" images, why would you go to the extra expense to capture your images with LF? It seems to me there is no advantage over a capture with 35mm or even medium format if the images won't be sharp anyway?
I'm sure there is a good answer, but I was just wondering?
