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

    Tonality aside, I thought it might be helpful to remove the footprints at the lower left, and darken the lower right.
  6. Re: Your Best Photograph from the Previous Month - Critique and Discussion Encouraged

    I think it's got a magical quality.

    Perhaps this minor edit ?

  11. Re: For macro lenses on 4x5in cameras, what focal length is most useful?

    You're most welcome.

    As you probably know, the Fujinon A series are corrected for 1:5, which makes them quite sharp from very close to infinity. Similarly, the APO-Sironar-S line is corrected for...

    How much enlargement ?

    The Castro district of San Francisco was named for Castro Street which bears the name of the family of Mexican general Jose Castro (1808-1860).

    Re: How sharp can I expect from 4X5

    There are many ways to consider the resolution question. Here's yet another one, based on my having shot both crop-sensor and large format extensively.

  25. Re: Comparison of Howtek 8000 Resolve to Epson V850

    For 4x5 film, a 16x20 is roughly a 4-to-5x enlargement. This tallies well with the notion that that actual usable resolution is around 1500 dpi, since a 300 dpi print at 5x requires 1500 dpi.

    Color cast aside, after sharpening and all other corrections have been performed, at what size print can the difference between scanners be discerned ?

    Re: Goerz Artar question

    Another option is front-mounting onto a shutter. I had Grimes make me an adapter ring to fit my 10 3/4 inch RD Artar onto the front of an Alphax #4 shutter.

    Ask SK Grimes. It wouldn't be surprising if they have done that combination before.
