Beautiful Ben and well worth all the effort you put into the trip, watched the video and looked through your art and it's very very nice. Curious how you got into the LF?

Sensational work, Ben. Love the rich colors, the flow of the water, and the beautifully lit tree. Definitely worth your effort.

Cheers,
Ed

Outstanding photograph Ben. I followed the journey via youtube and it looked very difficult.

A fantastic image. I love the colors, detail, and the interesting composition. It is a photograph that one can look at and ponder a long time.

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I honestly didn't expect much from this shot because my perception of it was shaped by my experience on the trip, but once I had time to sit on it a while, it began to grow on me.

Dan,

I switched to LF back in late 2008 because I just wasn't satisfied with the image quality from digital. I felt that if I was spending all this time to go on photo trips, I might as well shoot it on film since it's not that much more difficult, and now my images won't be reliant on the latest technology. After working with LF for 4 years now, I've learned that it's more than just the quality --- these cameras require a different way of working that has made me much more disciplined, and has allowed me to get shots that I wouldn't have had the patience for in the past. I have a Nikon D800 now as well which is awesome to work with on those days that aren't well suited for LF, but the 8x10 will be my primary camera until I can no longer carry it, or no longer get film for it.

Ben
