Don't you think it has a lot to do with the fact that the view camera is more deliberate? The image is upside down, the darkcloth - "blocks" (for lack of a better term) the distractions and since it is a one sheet of film, one image situation you spend more time 'seeing'. With the little LF that I have done, I have noticed a Big difference - the mistake I make is trying to shoot at least LF and MF or 35, which I have found does not really work. Just some thoughts....
