    Definitely like the harmonics here, especially with the curves of the swale playing off the receding ridgeline and the cloud above. Seems like a scene that...

    Definitely like the crop--I think "Padley Gorge" has similar potential up there in the canopy, maybe a semi-pano that lets the sinuous beech branches play off the cuprous yellow tree in the...

    I actually run one of those on a 50L panel loader that doesn't have wand pockets, though in the past I've cobbled together something similar with a couple of Grimlock carabineers and a chalk bag. ...

    Excellent, if you're headed northbound toward Gatlinburg, the first "Quiet Walkway" past the picnic area will take you to a particularly photogenic section of the LP--though you might need some...

    Just to take up your questions:

    1.) The most turn-key solution to change formats is to get what's termed a "format change kit" which is simply the carrier frame/GG assembly, bellows, and back...

    I suppose it helps that the treetops are fading naturally into the fog, but that's a technically impressive shot (not to mention a great composition.) Hope it prints nicely for you.:)
