    My father worked here 44 years. Shot with Fujifilm GA645Zi. My first shots using the camera. TriX shot at box speed, D76 1;9. Not sure which version I prefer. Probably the cropped square version. Still need to clean up edge but I wanted to get some feedback first. It's going in a zine I'm making for family members, theme is Detroit.

    Man I love this. The texture and DOF are wonderful.

    The square-ish one ... but I like tight. The empty space actually has content.

    Right, that's what I was thinking. For some reason a 8 x 10 crop looks a little off for some reason, I didn't post that however.

    These are great. I prefer the original: the square crop seems a bit pinched for space at the top.

    This is a great image! I prefer the first one. The frame feels more balanced to me than the square crop. This would look fantastic as a large canvas.

    Fantastic! I prefer the second crop, but only slightly.

    How about metallic paper?

    Very nice man!! I'm leaning toward the square crop. This image just screams "massive", reminds me of a Star Wars intro scrolling off into the distance. LOL Which there was something in between the two.
