Took the Mamiya for a day out a couple of weeks ago. Found these tress, with slanting light just cutting across them. Printed a little hard to emphasise the contrast. The question is, is it TOO minimalist ??

I think this is down to personal preference? I would like to be either closer to the bark or further away to get more trees in view.

Hi Barry. The group of trees is actualy tiny, with an ugly fence to the left so no 'wider' view exists. I didn't go closer as I quite liked the look of the trunks receding into the darker background. This is a new print, and sometimes you have to live with them a while to know how you really feel about the image. Thanks!

Too minimalist? - no, not at all. I think the composition is spot-on and I like the choice of the 250 to compress perspective. I'm sure the combination of warmtone and hard(ish) filtration make for a lovely print. Great work.

This is really lovely. The composition is spot-on and the tonality is beautiful.

I love the simplicity of this. The high contrast of PanF+ works well with this image too.

I really like this picture. Smile


I like the minimalism; I like the way it has been printed; I like the square format and I can imagine it hanging nicely on the wall.


Only thing is, I don't get a feeling of the warmtone paper and developer used, on my screen. Sad But hey, that's a really minor point. Smile

First I was a bit distracted, but after a while I especially like here the depth of field. Good one overall!
