    Very nice, other-worldly, and I can't quite tell, but it looks like your exposure has captured detail on the moon's surface.

    I'd enjoy seeing an image cropped from this one so we can better appreciate Diana's face.

    I bet your g-claron's performance would help this work.

    Well, I have no idea how the g-claron would help in this case. It's quite capable to render some detail from the moons face. As is most lenses.

    Which one of my two exposures, the one expected to render the moon, also did.
    The other exposure bracket was intended for rendering the rest of the image, since it was pretty dark, and had a very overexposed moon, as you would guess.

    It seems the bit about seeing the negative was edited out?

    I was curious if you might re-scan the negative for a cropped image, or simply crop from your existing scan if it can bear it. My eye sees an image in the left third of the image, but it's hard to tell if it would be as satisfying as your given image with the ghostly ribbon of fog. Moon detail might be won, but the ghostliness might be lost.

    Here a is a 1:1 crop of my existing scan. It's 2200 dpi (as much as I can go) and scanned on my Imacon Precision 2.

    Personally I don't think it will stand up for too much cropping.
    I'll have to go back next summer and shoot it with a longer lens

    That's more moon texture than I thought was there!

    The detail hiding deep inside a LF negative is often surprising – even astonishing – when focus, exposure, and shot technique are working for you.

    But I think you're right. The cropped landscape image I see is basically the bottom-left quadrant, with lake reflection, near trees, clouds, lower peak, and moon. But that might not bring-up the moon texture enough – and the drapery of fog would be lost, which is my favorite detail of your ethereal image.

    I like the tension between being invited to enter into the image but these beautifully lit thorns say otherwise.
    And lastly -- I appreciate the open upper corners. This could have easily been a vertical with the tree branches sweeping up into the corners and enclosing this space. It would be a good photograph...but it would not capture what the photographer mentioned about this being an open landscape.
    Thanks!

    Not far from Kiev, there is an absolutely fantastic place called "Vasylkiv Carpathians". Among the flat terrain, ravines and gorges suddenly appear, overgrown with grassy vegetation and trees.

    I was in Vacationland last week. I took only a Crown Graphic, and now wish I'd had more flexibility with movements and smaller f stops.
