    I just started with a 4x5 and am learning tilts. I find that in shots like this it doesn;t work because the tree extends through the whole vertical leaving the tops of the trees out of focus. I have to try just working with smaller apertures and leave tilts alone for these type shots.

    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.
