    I started this thread for those who have roll-film images of churches they want to show, that can’t be shown in the similarLF thread.

    Re: Post your churches (medium format)

    Why on earth do we need a specialty thread for medium format church photography, or for any particular subject matter, on a Large Format (view camera) Photography site? We already have threads for medium format images and for 35mm images. But opening threads like this carries it too far.

    After all, there are plenty of sites that emphasize MF. Go post the images over there. But, not here. (I could see a thread like this in the Lounge.) I guess I also dislike this thread, because some of the images above are negatively affected by keystoning, which is contrary to the LF values that are espoused on this site.

    To be sure, I like medium format, especially MF view cameras. But, this site has taken a stand against discussing smaller than LF cameras and equipment, except in the Lounge. I think that it should take a stand against these sorts of threads as well.

    Yikes. Maybe it should be renamed "Safe Haven for Medium Format Church Photos." Would that be any better?

    This is the everything else section of the Forum... and to sort of agree with you, when I saw the thread I sort of did a face palm, but the reality is, it's perfectly OK and not against the rules. How is this different than Post Your Trees in LF section? It's not polluting the Large Format section of image sharing. If it's a problem, I am sure a moderator will take action.

    It's different in that it's LF on an LF site.

    I'm OK with Safe Haven for MF. But, I disagree with any specificity beyond that. Or, it can be posted in The Lounge.
