This is an open thread to show your 6x6 images. I guess 4x4 will do as well if any of you have some of those.
I'll start with my latest. Junk Rolling Eyes

Some shots from my Lyons Colorado set. Some of these seen elsewhere on the interweb.
Yashinon and Xenotar
















Strange cloud shadows

A fine set and some are absolutely exquisite! Well, we didn't number these
so I like the girl in the cafe, bait shop, wherever it is, your dog, the water
fountain spigot, wheat field, well there's more, but really like these! I need
to get a couple of depo-testosterone shots before I post any of my mudpies
here, but will be shooting square this weekend, so stand by! Wink

BTW, which pix are with the Pat Xenotar lens?

Great idea! And some fantastic shots.

The square format is something special.

Here is one of mine:

Nice Rolf
The SL66 is a fine beast yes?
The B+W I really like. Is this with the "normal" planar?

So many nice images here ! Congrats for all of you!

Wel, I'm on the wrong computer -- I don't have any of my 6x6 images on this machine, and I don't have all that many up at my website, but I'll post what I got.

Now, I do have several images taken by a 6x6 camera, but I've cropped them. So I guess those don't fit the program.

Anyway, here are a couple of mine. I've posted them here at the forum before.

Southern California Beach and Lifeguard Station. Yashica Mat 124G


The Painted Desert, Arizona. Bronica EC-TL. I think the lens was the 80mm Nikkor. Might have been the 50mm Zenzanon.


I'll fire up my other PC and upload some more later.

Very Nice Michael. Impressive results from both Yashicamat and Bronicamat.

Bill I love the pics you get from that park. The reflection here is fantastic.

As usuaul it's just us core regulars posting. Where are some newer members? Confused

Michael, hope you're able to find some good ones on that other PC. Just kidding, these two are fab! Wink

Andy, thanks, hope to have some postworthy shots next week and am
standing by for the inevitable avalanche of pictures from newer members.
Yessir, I surely am. Wink

OK, Andy, what film and developer did you use, TMAX 400 with TMAX developer?

Yashica A, Acros 100:


Yashica A, Arista EDU 400, cropped a bit:


same, Arista EDU 400 (Bill did the original developing; I did this scan on the Epson 4490, and PP'd until I finally liked this "print" the best):



Acros 100:

Very fine set, Andy. Some real stunners in there. I especially like the last two.

Yes you guessed it. I also used hp5 for some and acros for a few.
Always in Tmax developer. I mixed up 1/2gallon of 1:4 for this week. So far 12 rolls in and have just started adding time.
The developer will keep going but the 1/2 gallon of fix is shot. It probably has 20 rolls so far.
My last roll of hp5 I did last night is still slightly pinker than it should be.

Hey look it's me with my D in my hands Laughing

Needs to try that developer, great results. Nice SP!

I have to say the square format still boggles me, but I have only shot maybe 40 frames as a grown-up. It ain't natural, and may never be.
Many years ago when I was a cub reporter, I had to use a 124G, but it always with a great-big honking Honeywell flash, for hand-shake shots, which ain't art, and some high school sports. Sports shots were all preset set at 10 or 15 feet, f11, or something like that, I used the cutout sports finder, and that big flash took care of the rest.
Rolf, that tree shot remains my favorite of yours.
Maybe I need to get a little square eyepiece so I can frame stuff at eye level, THEN set up the A on a tri-pod ...

Paul, I like what you did with the last shot, nice comp and PP (I did a quick
and dirty one when I posted it). The grave robbing crime scene...if I measure
the sides and they aren't close to equal, you're in trouble! Laughing

Here are a couple of Tower box camera Ektar shots:






almost the same as the black and white in my first post:

Bill, I am pretty sure I cropped that one top and bottom ... Laughing

Hey, does that bottom color shot look green? I am a tad colorblind in that spectrum ...

Thanks Orio and Bill.
Bill
The thing i like best about the Tmax developer is just how long it lasts.
The grain quality and tones are lovely as well. It's not a low contrast developer, not super high imo either but somewhere in between. Scans pretty well for MF.
It's great for semi stand.

A mono-pod and cable release might really work wonders for you to steady things. Not expensive nor heavy.
I use a cable with my 6x12 for what I call "Handle- Held" shots. There is nothing wrong with using a mono.
One of my favorite accessories.

Hope Mal and Attila show up. I know they both have some squares to spare Wink

Andy, thanks for the info on the TMAX dev. Jussi has square, too, but he
might actually be out photog-ing somewhere. Laughing
