    Wow !!! this is stunning Ed and definitely print worthy. I also am very over critical of my own shots but this I'd be very happy with. What was it shot with ?

    Ed, it's a stunning image, but something bothers me that I can't put my finger on immediately. I'm not sure without playing, but the colour is maybe too orange and not golden enough?

    My feeling as well - difficult to express - it just doesn't feel right.

    Dramatic image though!

    Hi Ed

    It is really Stunning - the sky is quite vibrant, so cool yet so warm there is something about the forefront that takes away from it. But the forefront seems that the shadows are plugged (at least on the screen) yet the the trees don't give off a defined shadow. Can't remember seeing some like this - I think the problem is the trees.
    Anyway it is stunning -
    best

    Ed, I agree with Paul, Swissblad and Philip. it is certainly stunning. My wife walked by as I was looking at the image and said "Wow, where is that?". On my screen the image appears oversaturated and there is something about the blue and intense yellow juxtaposed in the sky that is troubling and not natural looking. The trees should enhance/complete the image, but somehow their arrangement is not harmonious. Just my 2 cents; I wonder about a B&W version.

    Thanks all for the input, it confirms my assessment and does help pinpoint the problem.

    The sunlight on the haze is overly yellow which is obviously bothersome. It was very hazy which helped with the sun beams but the color came across weird. I also had centerfold issues that had to be corrected so perhaps the back got too hot.

    Maybe I'll revisit the raw file and see if I can improve it.

    Re: Fun with MF images

    One of my test-pics from the weekend.



    Trying out C1 - and I think with the P45+ it's really a thing which is needed. I normally use LR for nearly everything - but actually I feel there's a little bit more work with the Phase One. We will see if I will keep it.

    It is a great image and I love the orange, it makes the image. I tend to crop below the bright sun, I think it is the only negative if you are looking for one. THe fog at a distance and the tree shadows are powerful.

    This is a rare case that I somewhat disagree with Tom and others who felt the image wasn't quite right with regards to color balance. With respect to the subject and location, I almost expect a scene like this to have somewhat exaggerated color..warmth, yellow-orangery (for lack of a better term) as an emphasis to the hot day's sun that often shadows over the African plains. I tried a neutral rendition and it didn't do it for me. What it looks like in print might be a different matter, so I'm basing it what I see on a screen. In any case, a stunning image and I would most probably leave it uncropped, but would have to revisit that again by viewing both versions side by side.

    I agree with Tom, the color and contrast is unnatural. It is too hard/contrasty and too saturated to be real. But then again, I have never been to Africa...

    Hi

    I have to say - I enjoy this post, hearing different comments, I use the word enjoy, because it is refreshing and interesting to have honest opinions from people I respect based on their posted work and comments, this kind on honesty is so refreshing. I think we all owe Ed a thanks for asking and is so great to talk images not what socks we had on when we pushed the shutter. Everybody that commented and ED - I thank you!!!

    Re: Fun with MF images

    I have started using a Fuji 645W range finder so I can shoot film again without to have to only relay on my 4x5 or 8x10.
    I have a soft spot for range finders after my Mamiya 6 cameras.
    And because I feel completely comfortable with the 6x6 format, it was time to try the 645 format.
    For some reason, I never feel really comfortable in my comfort zoon

    I dropped three rolls of C41 films to a local lab that I had not used before.
    I actually did not know that they still had a machine that could handle the 120-format.
    And of course was they able to make a mess out of the films.
    They looked as if they was trying to make some kind of bellow out of the films.

    So I give up on labs. I already develop my own B/W films and now I have chemistry for bout C41 and E6.
    I can at least do better than the different labs I have used lately...

    Söderåsen nature reserve. From one of the mistreated films. But I did like the subject, so.. Cropped.
    Fuji 645W, 60mm, Kodak Portra 400.

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Ray, I share your attachment to rangefinders. I have my Mamiya 7II tucked away in the dry box. Fortunately I have a very wonderful lab not too far from home and when I want to shoot and get lovely C-type prints back (say a day out with the family), I'll pull out the M7II, shoot a couple of rolls and get 5R prints from them. It's wonderful, simple, pleasing photography. The whole family are excited in anticipation of getting our photo's back, and it usually involves a set-lunch at a little italian restaurant around the corner to the lab, no editing, no viewing on ipads.

    The only camera I truly regretted selling was my first Mamiya 7. As soon as an opportunity came up, I bought one back a couple of years ago. Even if only a handful of rolls go through it per year, it's still a most rewarding experience and worth having there.

    Just a wonderful image. You're making me envious Bill. My wife and I were going to travel up the 400 to the trans Canada and camp along the way on Georgian Bay. But someone let his passport expire so we traveled through Chicago instead

    I agree and perhaps someone can tell me why I don't like these images from the Palouse as much as I think I should. I'm reasonably happy with the 2nd, but the 1st is frustrating. I like the variation in colors and shapes, but something is lacking.

    Tom,

    The first one looks like three horizontal panoramas stacked on top of each other. Maybe separate them? The elements are striking.

    Tom, I think the second works very well because there is a focal point - the tree upper right. My eye goes to that then delights in wandering round the rest of the frame. The first has nowhere for my eye to stop...

    Thanks for your kind comment on my dawn picture,

    I don't know if I have much to say. As Matt said, it looks like a bunch of images stacked on top of each other. I am not one for cropping, by it also looks like the top of the image should end just above the building in the top right--the bases of the turbines are awkward. Perhaps letting more aerial haze in would give it the depth it needs--it looks like you processed it for the middle ground to give it contrast as the foreground looks oversaturated with a very hard black point, it also shifts the image toward yellow. I would process for the foreground letting the background shift to blue. Not really knowing how that would affect the image, it would also be my guess that the mid- to background are going to wash out a bit. I might try some layer masking (if you use Photoshop) to bring the tonality down, but not affect the contrast too much to give it a bit more substance.

    You might even try this in B&W.

    Anyhow, my 2c...

    Hi

    I agree

    I think the problem is the horizontal shadow bands slicing the image. So in agreement with Matt's comment it looks like panos that were stacked.

    I would "unstack" crop it and then see where the image takes me. Try some of the other comments offered up.

    Thanks

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Thank you all, Matt, Bill , Will and Phil. The first image does look like horizontal stitches; I didn't see that. Ironically, it was taken with a 600mm - no stitching, but the intent was to compress and stack the topography. The haze was quite pronounced and likely is part of the cause, along with a lack of something to draw the eye.

    Tom, although I haven't been to that area personally, many including myself have seen many images of the Palouse and what struck me about your images was the harsh lighting, or it appeared that way. I feel this had more to do with your somewhat dissatisfaction of the two images (ewspecially the 1st, more than anything else. Yes, the 2nd image has a focal point which the 1st image lacks, but the right kind of lighting I suspect would have gone a long way in presenting such a landscape in a interesting and attractive way. This landscape begs for this type of lighting, in my opinion.

    Gradients are pushed to the limits on the JPG. Still holds on my monitor, hopefully on yours as well.

    Truth be told Dave, I sought out the hard, directional light of sunset to bring out the textures of the grain and the shapes of the hills. I think the harshness you refer to is more a consequence of my processing as noted by Will. Unfortunately for me, it was very hazy that evening and I was committed to using long lenses, which just exacerbate the lack of contrast. I concentrated on restoring contrast to the scene and went too far.
    If that 1st image is to be salvaged, I think a slight crop on top and the lower third will retain the interesting textures.

    OK, you can't post a piece like this without sharing exposure, camera, etc.

    Great image!
