    Nice work, Dave!
    Good saturation and minimum loss of dynamic range of rock textures.
    Is this scene before sunrise?
    Swung focused on the plane parallel to the rocks?
    It looks like no wind at the scene based on your shutter speed.

    Many thanks for this. Here's a a repost (I made the mistake of inverting the neg without turning colour management off in the scanner - hence the wild colours). Bit frustrating: had to rescan and re-spot.
    Much more muted, but consistent with the Portra look, and much truer to the conditions at just after sunrise. Yes, focus was on the plane from the left edge of the largest stone to about half way in to the distant fields from the edge of the frame. Lost a bit of sharpness on the foreground grass, but not a problem, and, as you say, zero wind.

    West Kennett Barrow! Wow, that brings back memories. I shot inside at midnight back in '88. Stumbling around on the top of the hill I didn't realize I was so close to Silbury.

    Here's something more recent, another try at my favorite trail in the Ft. Ebey State Park - Hokey Ka Do Do, it's called.

    150 mm lens, TriX with yellow filter, f22, 2 s, N+1 dev and scanned from print.

    Really fine image, Merg.

    I am always in doubt when I see images captured on black and white film and scanned from the negative only.
    It may be my prejudice, but to reveal how much a large format photographer knows about the process and the full (almost) depth of an image obtained from a large format camera, the posted image should always be scanned from the printed image, either it by traditional or digital processes.
    Just saying...

    Dave, that’s a different look indeed.
    I only take pics by color transparencies so I really can’t tell in the case of negs, but
    I probably use a reverse nd grad 0.9 after sunrise and at the sunrise or, nd grad 0.6 well before sunrise during dawn.

    Sorry not LF pics, the following is a example by nikon D100 way back in 10 years ago or so.
    Japan alps about 3000m in Nagano prefecture.

    Thank you, Helcio.

    I agree completely. Over the years that I have shared my photographs on this forum, they have been scanned gelatin silver prints. At best, they are not true representations of the original, and for that reason I do not offer works for sale from my website. When I published a monograph of my work in 2017, all of the scans were made by the publisher, who was himself on press with my original prints for comparison. The results, duotone with stochastic screening, were a very good representation of my photographs.

    On a good screen and with proper calibrated process with regards to scanning / editing, when I send off for prints they come back looking exactly as I expect from my screen.

    Silver prints scanned to me do not look as good as in-person. IMO, a scanned negative is better than a scanned print.
