    That's the first time I have seen that view. Is it from the steps at the front gate, or a ground view from the yard? Very nice.

    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.
    Just so I am clear on the 'rules'. Images made with a medium format camera are ok, as long as all parallel lines are rendered so.
    How about images originating with a large format camera intentionally showing converging parallel lines?

    I'm OK with Safe Haven for MF. But, I disagree with any specificity beyond that. Or, The Lounge.
    But this is the Everything Else forum, and I read to that to be everything except LF images and discussion, which has it's own forum full of specialty subjects dedicated to Large Format (even churches, if I recall). Perhaps you can ignore threads you disagree about? Just a thought.

    Neil, this thread is specifically in the subforum set aside for people who want to show their work from smaller cameras. That’s why it’s called “everything else”, as opposed to “large format”.



    You may be missing what subforum it’s in if you are looking at “new posts”.

    Yes, it’s in the section normally reserved for large format as the exception we allow for large-format photographers who also work in smaller formats and want to show that work to their friends here without having to dig through non-image-sharing threads in the lounge.

    Before this gets out of hand: we're not going to impose heavy-handed moderation here. The purpose of the subforum is simply to provide an opportunity to share and enjoy the work that so many of us are doing in other formats, subject only to the same rules that apply to LF picture-sharing so that the Forum doesn't get into trouble with illegal, violent or NSFW material. There's no other agenda.

    Taking off my moderator's hat and speaking as a member, I enjoy seeing what everyone is up to in their other photographic pursuits.

    Please carry on!
