    Re: Post Your Own 12x20 LF Image

    I seem to like HP5 more and more as the format gets larger. I'm not a fan in 35mm. The reciprocity-induced contrast boost seems to help.

    Re: Post Your Own 12x20 LF Image

    Indeed CB, I think this format is a bit more relevant than the 8x20 long-and-thin negative which was hard to find compositions with. Also I am traveling to Myakka next month so maybe I will find...
