    It really does not matter to me, tend to lean towards the typical 8x10, 11x14, 16x20 - but I have seen other formats that just WoW! me. Each image seems to have it's favorite format - One which the image is at it's best - does anyone else ever see that?

    I shoot to try and use the whole neg.
    I crop to get the best out of the neg. I don't crop to the paper size.
    Most of my work is done on 10x8 inch.
    Just started using 12x16 and it's amazing, though you need a reasonable neg. Oh and I only shoot 35mm. Would love to shoot medium format but I don't know that it will ever happen.
    Possibly going to try some 11x14 soon, picked up a brand new 11x14 lpl easel for £20 quid the other week. 11x14 could be a handy size for those negs that I want to print big but need a big crop.
    Had never heard of 11x14 till I started looking net forums.
    Nor do I know anybody in Scotland that stocks it, though silverprint in London have it I belive.
    Meanwhile my weekend print session was ruined late last night by a kidney stone attack. Had to throw the fiber prints out of the bath so I could get into it to try and kill the pain. Today was completely lost as I'm totally shattered and I'm now as far behind with my current project as ever!

    I enlarge 4x5 in sizes from 5X7 to 16X20. (8X10 and 11X14 are most common). 8X10 and 12X20 I contact print.

    I have been concentrating on 9 x 12 images on 12 x 16 paper, and using 10x8 paper for work prints. This works great from my 4x5 work.

    I think you'll find that is Rob Gray of Ozzie fame. He has done some superb work.

    You're right . . . I was surfing his site today and while doing so I had the niggling thought that I had put his name down as "Paul" somewhere. I think I may have been getting him confused with Paul Butzi when I wrote that post.

    The prints are by Rob Gray and I'm having them framed for my birthday
    Let's see what I've got in the magic trash can for Mateo!
