I really connect with this shot, B&W or just a B&W day?
Did you give up the 4x5?? I'm still working with the Linhof.
Thanks for the kind words.
It is indeed a conversion to B&W, but there were very colors to start with, except for a pretty intense dusk blue hue.
I still have the 4x5 gear, but I use it a lot less these days. The main reason is the cost of film processing. In the case of this particular trip, 4x5 was also not really an option because there was a lot of walking to do with food etc...
I notice your doing more stitching. I've played with it a bit, but I'm waiting for 2 camera, the rumored D3x and the small body D3. The D2x is still holding me over (for the moment).
Indeed. I am getting excellent results with stitching. It has become a second nature, and doesn't take me that much time anymore nowadays. Compared to the time it takes to take the tripod out etc... stitching only adds 30 or 40% more time once you get used to the gear and procedure.
I still have my D2x as a back up for the D3, but will probably sell it in May time frame.
The D3x will definitely be my next DSLR, but the D3 will remain an excellent back up for it, and will probably stay the main camera for everything but landscape images.
