I bought a Calumet 4x5 monorail last year and recently borrowed a Poloroid Back and bought some film to really check it out. I don't have access to a wet darkroom so this is the first time I've known it works like a champ. I thought it was alright but it is like the old saying "The proof of the pudding is in the taste" and it looks mighty tasty.

Here is one of the photos I took. I like the angles and how it draws the viewer in to the image.

I hope to get a wet darkroom up and running so I can shoot and develop film.

    Excellent composition !!! The crop is really nice.
    Its good to see a photo from you again....

    I saw what section you put it in. One thing I see is it is overexposed in the sky which is a little distracting. I like the composition so you could shot it a little later in the evening or in the morning. It's hard to say anything else because its a scan of a slid. I like the shot.

    Best wishes.
