I agree with Gary, the last image is particularly well seen.

Nice images, just my sort of thing. I keep contemplating a 6x7 with a shift lens. I wish I had got one ten years ago when the prices weren't too bad, they are a little rich now.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

Thanks Peter, very well executed. You have inspired me to get my 67 and 75mm shift lens out, I have a scene I'd like to try out, it will be a vertical shot (I was hoping to use the WLF for better framing - but not with a vertical).

I remember reading somewhere (the lens manual perhaps), that you may not want to dial out all the convergence, but to leave a smidgeon in for effect.
