From one of my ventures into the gorge with the 4x5. Some parts of it are so peaceful and cool I didn't need the color to get the feeling across.

Ebony SV45u, Delta 100 BW neg film, Probably a Rodenstock 90mm.

I recognize that area (I couldn't guess your previous Zion post boulder location)

I really like the BW. The line between the 2 vertical rock faces plays tricks in your mind. After staring at it for a while I almost can't tell which one overlaps the other. Pretty trippy

Hey Jeffrey,

Your choice of B&W works. The Narrows is a cool place, and you worked the light pretty nice here.

Beautiful tones on the vertical rocks Jeffrey. The reflected foreground leads to that contrast line between them.
Love it.

Excellent Photo Jeffery! The B&W is done perfectly!

You have a nice optical illusion going on there. My eyes keep flipping the canyon walls back and fourth as to which one is in front of the other.

Nice Work!

Hi Jeffrey,

Nice work with the 4x5! I like the hard edges, the tonal range and the reflection, very much. How are you scanning these?

Thanks everyone!


I've been using a wet mount system on my Epson v700 flatbed. There's a good learning curve and a bit of work to setup each one, but the results are better.
