    Jim, I am trying to figure out what lens was used to make this, and I'm stumped. Was it a projections lens, or maybe a Verito? Its lovely!

    Thanks Jon and Paul. This was done with a Pinkham & Smith Semi Acromat 11". I would love to do a whole series of images on nothing but Pontiac hood ornaments from the '20's to the last Chief that graced a hood. Our era of industrial innocence and beauty . . . now forbidden.

    Had a couple hours today to shoot out at my favorite state park after renewing my year pass. Trying out some Foma 100 in 5x7, developed in Pyrocat 1:1:100, shot on my Mercury 5x7, cropped slightly:



    One more further down the creek, full-frame:

    gorgeous work, nice tonality, great sweep to the frames; looks wide, 120mm?

    Definitely like the first shot--the chutes on either side of the central boulder really hold their texture...are you using the "multiple" vs. "long" exposure trick here? (FWIW, speaking of crops, I'm thinking you could hack out a 6x17/6x15 take that would have a lot of "graphic" interest.)

    dasBlute, I forgot to mention the lens - it is a 72mm XL. I had this Mercury custom configured for this lens and it has a focus helical to shoot handheld if I want.

    CB, it was a 1-second exposure, not multiple. I think it was just short enough to keep that texture. At f/32 + a 2-stop CF, even with the sun out my exposures are quite long. Perhaps I should've sprung for 400-speed...

    You're right about the wider "format." Really I should've gotten closer to the boulder but I wasn't wading yesterday as it was way too cold for that. I also didn't want to completely redo the same photo I've done before on 6x9, or maybe I do...

    I really liked how it looked with the raucous water flow so really a shorter exposure would've helped, and about 5 feet forward.

    Ha, I keep pushing the waders idea (or else a climbing tree-stand) but that flow would be a little pushy even for a heavy wooden tripod. At any rate, I'll look forward to your 5x7 work--I'm in the minority, I think, in that the native format is a little too rectangular for me, but it seems it can broken down in a lot of useful aspect ratios and still support a reasonable print.

    Yep it was flowing very fast, and very heavy from recent rains. It's generally fairly shallow so overall it's not too bad for standing in and I usually hold the tripod steady in that kind of flow.

    Down in south GA during the summer, wading could be much more dangerous as it was actual flood waters during the rainy season, with varying depth that could change drastically and invisibly as you walked forward. So I'm used to walking very methodically and carefully.
