    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.

    To my reckoning there are 7 prints outstanding.

    Sent mine to Carl Radford 1st class yesterday.
