    There are many that use the square, and use it well, for landscape work.

    Just an example of a square color landscape photo I took.

    Rolleiflex, probably Kodak 160 VC color negative film.
    Oak, Spring, Western Foothills of the Sierras
    Scanned 8x8 RA4 print I made.

    I don't think any rectangular format would have worked the same way with this particular image.

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    But Vaughn, how would we know? All we have is what you show, and it's a square already!

    Very beautiful image. Almost makes me want to do color again!

    Hey, Bowz,

    You'll have to take my word for it . Not that I don't think that someone (or myself) could not have taken a great rectangular image right there, right then, but it would work in a way that was very different.

    I do not do much color -- but sometimes color just works.

    Here's one of the few landscapes of mine that I'm pleased with.

    This thread is getting me quite depressed

    Loads of great unprinted Square negs, just developed another 9 rolls yesterday, but I have no darkroom access for about 3 months, and no neg scanner here either . . . . . but the negs are great, luckily I can read a neg so I know exactly how I'll print them.

    Ahhh, the curse of having more negatives than one can print (for whatever reason). Should we all be so blessed (or cursed!)

    Cursed, blessed, how many four drawer filing cabinets full, some of the film not even really seen by eyes of my own (after art director is done rejecting them ) - how little money, how little time.

    Let us count our blessings/curses!

    I actually broke down and used a smiley. Against my religion, but hey, I guess they are useful.

    I'm already there - too many negs to print. But it's good to have that reserve, because sometimes when I go back through them, I find things I didn't see before.
    Four drawer file cabinets - I'll say! I could probably not even fill one long drawer yet.
    I view it as a curse, because a lot of the film is from a time I didn't have the amenities to print. Now that I have the amenities, it's easier to focus on what's fresh, which leaves little time for the old stuff. But sometimes certain pictures or series fare better if they ripen for a while... That's the blessing part of it. Sometimes I even go back and find negs in the collection that might be useful for a new project. Another blessing.

    Go with that smiley, Bowz!

    I find square landscape photos usually very balanced but it took me a long time to learn to compose square landscapes myself. Is takes a different kind of seeing. And if the square does not work, one can always crop.
