    One from the H2 & P20 with HC 80mm f2.8. I have fusticated madly over where to crop this so am including the original image from ACR (WB to shade and contrast to 35) and the finished image.

    Question where is the water flowing. Down , always give movement space to go. We normally would call that negative space. Try it

    It seems to me that, in the original, you have a very narrow field of focus; the foreground and the background are not in focus. So your crop does put the foreground in focus, which to me is really important, but, as has been said, there is little negative space on the right for the water to "flow" into.
    IMHO,
    Bob

    Thanks, Guy & Bob - that OOF foreground was my dilemma - should I include it or cut it. I eventually did cut it, as you can see, but I'll try another edit

    Wow! I really appreciate all those positive comments on "Abandoned". Thank you all.

    (I'm treating the IQ180 like I used to shoot 4 by 5, very slow and contemplative.)

    Personally I think it's important in MOST situations that the foreground be in focus. That's how we normally see things. If it's OOF, it confuses me and makes it difficult to look at comfortably. Of course if there is a specific object you want the view to see and have only that in focus, blurring the foreground can work really well.

    With your image I think you've done about as well as can be done. If there is anyway to extend it on the right to get some space between the specular highlights of the water and the edge, that would be great. I suspect if you do that, the OOF foreground may begin to appear, but it might work with just a little OOF. Certainly worth a try.

    Keep 'em coming!

    So I decided to take a shot and see for myself the capabilities of this macro gem.
    was this with the old 120/4 macro or the 'newer' Mk II 120/4 macro?

    I'm trying to decide between the 120 and the 28, seeing that the 80 is perfect for portraits, but the 28 is just so perfect for landscapes and wider angles that I can't pull off with the 80.

    Taken with the old macro.

    The new macro, i'm told, offers better corners both wide open and stopped down.

    Sometimes corner performance is over-rated -- and the Bokeh on that lens of yours is very pleasing. Great capture!

    Stopped by the Babcock Mill on my way to the Northeast. Hopefully when I come back this way there will be some fall color. Looks at least a couple weeks out but some of the maples outside the park have already turned.

    Wonderful scene Ed. Many other great postings since I last visited. I liked your "birds" shot Bill; coincidentally, I am going through old slides (and have been for the past several years ) and found this one. Pentax 67 with 500mm lens, Provia:

    Beautiful image! I have an RZ67 myself and have been quite enamored with the look of 6x7, and was wondering if shooting with an MFDB delivers the 645 look or the 67 look. What are your thoughts on this?

    I shouldn't mention it here, but I have resorted to a GH2 for no-flash (dance) studio pictures of dancers and gymnasts, mainly for my wife's website.

    The H4D-40 is much better than my H4D-60, and it would be nice to have both...

    A tech cam would be good for this shot?

    I have used my H4D-60 for dancers with my 4 head studio flash system, and should be able to use it with my 4 head Metz system.

    PS I have a diagnosis, and I am booked in for a Cardioversion on 6th October.

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Dick, the trick here is really the flash (lighting) and not so much the camera itself.

    I use the Profoto Pro 8a and two pro-heads to photograph her using high-speed flash photography.

    With the Profoto Pro8a, you are looking at 20 flashes per second or 1/12000th second per burst.

    It was that incredibly fast flash speed that freezes her, not the H4D-40.

    Hope that helps.

    I'd have probably fit in more at the museum if I had had an iPhone. I got some of the weirdest looks I've ever gotten. I did have a guard stop by and chat about medium format which was cool.

    It's different, yet the same. Intellectually, I know that 110mm is the same no matter what. 110mm on my 645AF feels distant/detached, on the RZ I find there is an immediacy. But then I'm not really using any of the good Phase/Mamiya lenses on the 645AF, just the 55-110 and the 105-210.

    Great shot, Ed. But then... Do we even have to say that Oh wait - yes.. Praise is balm for artist's soul (or something like that.. )

    This is what photography is all about. Capturing moments in time. Well Done
