    It is pretty amazing, but I'd rather have seen more of the setup process and less of the hike. Also, all that effort and the result was one very expensively underexposed negative? Ouch!

    Its a night time/long exposure, how can you tell its underexposed? The end result is phenomenal, in any scale or standard.

    Oops, my French failed and I parsed "surexposee" as meaning under- rather than over-. And if you take a look at the photo as shown at about 6:10 (when the caption says "mais surexposee!!") you can see that the fireworks blew out in the center. The two 11x14 chromes look good, but as I interpret the video, it seems like Aziz the 20x24 shooter came home without a keeper.

    I agree.

    I would have been much more frustrated about the slight movement. The exposure was quite subjective. There is no perfect exposure for such shots. You choose between the overall image or you aim for perfect fireworks and everything else is underexposed to a point where the whole image is bad.

    Man, I wonder how a negative that big would translate in... le gasp... megapixels.

    The first lesson is: PACK MULE!

    That descent in the dark just scared me, though.
    Using film since before it was hip.

    I might be alone on this, but I don't really get the point. It seems to me when people use anything bigger than 5x7 or maybe 8x10 it becomes all about trying to manage impossibly gigantic equipment and the photography itself goes pretty much out the window. It always seems like there's just too much else involved to spend any time or energy thinking about the art.

    Isn't all the fun about getting there, the Journey?
    Besides, the big PITA isn't the format but the photo spot itself, IMO.

    I know I'd have tremendous fun shooting 20x24... But I wouldn't go into mountains and remote places. Medium format would be the MAX size for such remote places...
