    Another option is to tilt halfway and use apertures to finish the job.

    That compromise is pretty much included in the shot above, but perhaps could have been done more skillfully. Actually, in the same location work the previous week I used TMZ 35 mm and got much nicer results. I'm loaded now to return to a nearby spot that has less tree presence in the near field. That should help.

    Though I am looking forward to moving to 8x10, I have to say I do enjoy my 4x5. Guess it will have to do until I can find the right 8x10.

    Managed to find some time to get to the beach and capture this image. I’m relatively new to large format but really enjoying the process and images.

    Cheers

    This goes back a long time, I was 13. The photograph was made in 1954 on a trip with Brett Weston and my dad. We were passing through Bridgeport, California, late afternoon on our way home to the Bay Area. I was using a 4x5 Brand 17 camera and 250mm Zeiss Tessar lens. The three of us set-up here that afternoon. In case it looks familiar, Brett's photograph was published soon after in the US Camera Annual.

    Nicely done in what looks to have been pretty tough conditions! If you're not a traditionalist when it comes to 1:1.25, you might think about a 3:5 aspect ratio across the bottom of the frame--"pruning" the top of the tree might help unify the two major components of the image.

    Hi Matt

    Yes, I really like this + that you didn't go down the oft chosen 'f64 route', so something a little different.............

    Details of the location would be good

    regards

    Andrew

    I like the framing -- the first thing I thought of was a movie studio portrait of John Wayne in some western shoot-em-up.
