I received a very nice square format print from Brian Jeffery today. Looks like it was worth the effort clearing the litter from the site, Brian. It's a shame that this seems to be necessary at so many photogenic sites these days.

Anyway, it's a great print of a very difficult subject - silver birches in what looks like direct sunlight. Tough metering and printing and both have worked out well.

I wonder if a little more blank foreground would lend a little more balance to the print or whether it's just me being used to 6x7 rather than 6x6.

Anyway, I'd love to the the IR version and as I can't make the spring gathering is there any chance of posting scan?

Thanks very much

Barry

thanks for the comments Barry.

It's funny, I've only recently purchased my C330 with its square format. Before that I've been used to filling the full frame of 35mm. So, I think if I had taken this picture using my SLR I would have almost certainly have flipped the camera on its side, and as a consequence included more foreground. Would this have been a better shot? I don't know. Perhaps I should revisit the shot with my A1 loaded with SFX :) (Any excuse). My main reason for using the full 35mm frame was the drop off in quality experienced when enlarging only a portion of the negative. However, I suspect this is going to be much less of an issue with 6x6; perhaps I should look at sacrificing some of the negative in some shots...

What upset me about the litter was just the shear amount of it and the fact that it was on MY local recreation ground. I'm seriously considering wandering up there with a big black bin liner once in a while in an effort to clear it up a bit.

If you don't mind an RC print I'll pop the same picture taken with an IR filter in the post later this week?

Thanks Brian, I've no problem with RC and would like to see the alternative take.

And good luck with the black bin liner, we often go on a litter-picking walk round our area which is out in the sticks but even here people just throw things from their cars. Bizarre.

I shall watch the post eagerly.

Should I name and shame those who haven't sent a print on time, nor had the decency to offer an excuse or appology?

I seem to have missed the post near the beginning that says the closing date was the 18th. I was assuming it was the end of the month. Whoops. Sorry 'bout that... I'll get mine sorted at the weekend.

Cheers, Bob.

Sorry about the delay. I too was caught out by the short time, compounded by being away for a week over Easter.

It will be in the post this week, either tomorrow or Tuesday.

Cheers

I was contacted by the sender of my print. He had received my old work address and sent it there. He graciously is sending another print. Please don't put to much shame on him, he did send it on time.

It has been over a year since I worked for the last company. They usually throw any mail away assumng it is junk mail.

I don't have you for round 5, would I be correct in assuming that "MN" is Minnesota, if so then this is the UK exchange. If not, then have you changed your handle?

cheers
