    Mexico, summer 2018. I took this on FP4 with a rolleiflex 3.5, just printed it last week.

    I've been posting a lot of photos from the Gulf Islands National Seashore on the coast of Mississippi, and I've got two more to post. The first is the resident gator that lives in a pond at the head of my favorite trail there. I've never actually photographed him because he is usually just floating with his head on top of the water but this time he was really on display and I luckily had a long telephoto. I shot this with my Nikkor-T 500mm f/11 on my Chamonix, with a 6x12 back:



    Speaking of this alligator - back in December when the gov't was closed I saw a local news broadcast about how the shutdown was affecting tourism at the National Park. They interviewed some guy from New Jersey, and it was quite entertaining hearing his thick accent exclaiming "I hear tell of an alligator somewhere in the park" and that he was disappointed he didn't get to see it. I guess these animals are a bit more wild to the northerners .

    Also down at the end of that trail is my favorite part of the park. I have shot dozens of images in this one little area of the trail that is just chock full of beautiful scenes. Here's one more:

    Corran, Shooting a 'gator in LF? You must be nuts! But I like it. Congratulations.

    John, last year a friend and I went to the Big Cypress National Preserve to photograph, and drove down "Alligator Alley." They aren't kidding with that name - saw dozens and dozens of gators. At one point we were watching one swim through a culvert and crossed the road to see him come through the other side. Afterwards we looked up and about 10 feet to the right of us was a big ol' gator eyeing us from the shore that we had totally missed when crossing. We scampered back to the car and for the rest of the day were a lot more alert...

    You know, you could probably corner the market on contact prints of the more charismatic herpetofauna in that part of the world--though there's always the possibility a big gator might end up going "whir/click" instead of Dr. Hook's crocodile's "tick-tock."

    Well 8x20 would work nicely for their shape. I might want a longer lens than I have though...

    Your gator picture is actually raising some questions I've had about working on the "long end" with LF. Here's my thought process:

    1.) From what I gather, it's reasonable (if not uncontroversial) to believe that a 6x9 negative of well-exposed, say, FP4+ can support a 16x20 enlargement of pretty high quality.

    2.) If I am content with 16x20 as my target output, then the equivalent of a 6x9 negative (nine or so square inches) becomes my "quantum" no matter what native format I'm shooting in. 4x5 thus has two "quanta," 5x7 has a little under four.

    3.) Therefore I should feel comfortable either optically or digitally cropping into an LF negative, to the point that my effective lens focal length is doubled (in the case of 4x5) or even quadrupled if I'm scanning 5x7.

    So, what am I missing? I realize that I might pushing the envelope for LF lens sharpness, but I'm also avoiding the stability issues that might arise with a big lens at the end of a racked-out bellows.
