Gandolfi, Jim, Thank you for the kind words.
The lens is a 16inch Kodak Soft Focus Portrait "Dinner Plate" (er... I mean "lens") F4.5. Its beastly large and require a tripod to support the front standard when mounted. Takes up almost the entirety of the 6" x 6" F&S 12x20 lensboard.
All the images were shot in the F6.3 - F8 range, using a lenscap and my internally calibrated chronometer - 1 one thousand, 2 one thousand
