    I took this with the Toyo 45CX and a 90mm Schneider Super Angulon on 100ASA BW film. Scanned on Epson 4990 and touched up for dust with PS CS.

    If Zeus was a photographer, he'd use LF.

    Cool shot. I can almost feel the texture.

    What's LF?

    Dimitri, you're just no good with that Toyo. Just send it over to me! :lmao:

    Seriously, good shot. Great composition and cool tones.

    Thanks! LF stands for Large Format. In this case it's a negative 4 inches by 5 inches (or 9cm by 12cm).

    Has a nice range of tones (something I ALWAYS immediately look for in a B+W photo) and the composition is lovely.

    I have a friend who is a professional landscape photographer. He has put the bug into me to move up into the bigger formats (Medium or Large). Pictures like this will only urge me further....so please stop before I find myself out another couple of thousand dollars :mrgreen: .

    Thanks! The mine was abandoned in 1941 and it was left intact for all these years. It's in a natural state of decay and I'd say in about 50 years from now it'll be all but nothing left standing.

    Thanks to all for your comments. I'll try to post other shots taken there with the 4x5.

    Do those negatives only come on plates or can you get LF film in rolls already?

    "Linhoff, Linhoff"... that does ring a bell!
    I hear that word mentioned by my dad and uncle, but you know I was only between 2 and about 8 when they did quite a bit of photography on the side.

    It must have paid well, though, else I wouldn't know where the Leicas, the Rolleiflex (which - so my sister says - is beyond repair, unfortunately), and maybe even that mysterious "Linhoff" came from, that I only dimly remember from having been mentioned. :scratch: wonder where that went to, if it ever was there in the first place, for my sister does not seem to have it in her collection (of all the cameras my dad and uncle used back in the sixties when they had their little private company for advertisement, portraits and event photography going).

    As to your photo here: it is just WONDERFUL!
    I so wish I at least knew how to develop my own black and white film (regular 35mm, of course) ... but I don't even know anything about that. All I remember is that our new bathtub back in the early 60s was only smooth for the shortest of moments, after that soon enough all the smoothness was gone and it was a rough and scratchy from the developer that my dad and uncle poured into it after use :shock: :lol: !
