  7. Re: Your Best Photograph from the Previous Month - Critique and Discussion Encouraged

  9. Re: Chamonix 5x12" camera, with options is a reality

    Very cool! I'll stick to shooting half-frame 11x14 for now, but the size and weight of the 5x12 is pretty nice.

    Re: DOF on 8x10 vs. 4x5?

    I feel the same way about Linda Conner's work (POP instead of platinum). She was using the qualities of the lens, not just taking photos with it...a more conscience approach.

  14. Re: pros/cons of two different lenses at the same focal length?
