4 shots stitched Aptus 54s (turns into about 6x12), on back of Special Crown Graphics, using Xenar (Schneider) 135mm/4.7, tilted and dropped a bit.
Another image from my recent adventures in Death Valley. A little more wind than I would have liked at the dunes, but the moody weather gave a nice result.
p65+ with 75-150mm at 115mm, 1/60th at f/8 iso 100
I am with you on the weather conditions: a fine shot to begin with is beautifully enhanced by these conditions.
Should look awesome printed BIG.
Agree guys this is a winner. One part though that bugs me is the hot spot on the right side with the light in the mountain. Maybe just a slight burn. Keep my eye from running off that side would be my only suggestion.
Trying to find some IQ 180 shots.
Death Valley Racetrack IQ 180 , 110mm lens at 5.6
Coincidentally, I drove through Death Valley several weeks ago also. I had never been there before so it was more a trip of discovery. Hopefully I'll someday have an opportunity to get back as I could definitely spend a lot of time there scouting out interesting shot possibilities. Anyway, here are a few with the S2.
P40+ with the 35mmD lens at F14
Low light shooting with the Blad - why not?
I am a long time Nikon shooter and some of my favorite images are available light people shots with the high ISO D700.
Now with my Hasselblad H1 / Phase One P25+ life surely is different. But yet, these spontaneous snapshots are feasible.
One of my better half with her Caribbean tan
Available light only @ f/8 and 1/30 sec. / ISO 100
Kurt - love third one - very cool colour composition
Guy - thanks i am trying to experiment with some old stuff.. Still waiting to arrange some portrait sessions where i can try few ideas out. Its really interesting to see how well some of those 100 year olds do with digital backs (and film).
Wayne that is beautiful.
+1 Wayne, truly a stunning image. The depth and 3 dimensionality is amazing!
From a trip down Utah Hwy 12, last spring.
P30, Mamiya 35mm MF, processed/converted to B/W in C1.
10 seconds, 80mm wide open. Light was changing too fast to do some more shots for focus stacking (the ZD takes ages to write an image to the card)...
Great image, Jamie!
While we're doing tulips: P65+ on 645DF, ISO 50, 100thth Sec F14 110mm LS on arca cube, Gitzo CF and complicated studio setup!
Fall evening, Ketchum, Idaho
Mamiya 645, P30, 35mm MF
Another great one, Jamie!
Here's my contribution from my first shoot with the H4D and 35-90mm.
Shot using a Broncolor Verso A4 with battery dock connected (best kit in the world, love it!), 2 heads. Key light from 60" Softlighter attached up high and 2nd light from back right side with P45 reflector attached.
Hey Wayne, wonderful image!
Here's mine from the same morning a few dunes over...
P65+, 100mm HR, Alpa STC. Still getting the sand out of my Alpa!
Very, very nice! Love the balance of warm/cool colors.
Love it, Dave.
I see you caught something in the 2 minutes we had of sun hitting the sand
Wayne and Dave:
STUNNING dune shots, both! Congrats!!!
"Perfection is not attainable. But if we chase perfection, we can catch excellence."
As you said, the wind picked back up while we were out which made efficiency all the more important. The good news is practice is so much fun!
Sorry, no shift on that one, just a crop. Everything was changing so fast and there was sand blowing everywhere.
I do have a test shot of a full shift on the Alpa STC with that lens (~18mm). I was completely surprised because the image goes all the way out there. It is not as sharp, but there is very little color cast (it was taken in snow). I'll send you a pm with the images tomorrow.

Lots of beautiful stuff, everyone!
From an earth day celebration today in Baton Rouge... all on an aptus ii 6 and mamiya 210/4

This year I dragged the Big Blad along on vacation in the Caribbean.
Coupled with the 50-110mm is was a bit more hefty than your typical vacation P&S , but I am glad I took it along.
The only (slight) gripe I have is that the poor quality of the Phase One back screen resulted in me not realizing that I had the CP cranked up a bit too much .
It will definitely come along on future vacations.
As always, the web JPEG does not do justice to the original...
P40+ with 300mm lens
Waiting to see more winner shots, Guy, well done!!!
I'm with you Tareq.
Nice work Guy.
Thanks guys off to a gig. Check in later
