... could not EDIT due the stupid DPR current mis-timing - my posting was minus 59 minutes ago, would you believe. Much comment on other forums (Open and PC) about DPR going to sleep as this has been the problem with timing for several days. Means the EDIT function will appear in about another 50+ minutes time. Grrrrrrrrr!

Anyway - what I forgot to include ... at last I hear you cry ... is that I liked your shot very much!

I mainly used long-ish exposures with my 5x4 for the same sort of effect Lea. Did not need a filter though as could use f45 or less. One lens (superb 145/220/290mm) - (could use both parts combined for 145mm or front or back separately for those focal lengths). The iris was marked in mm scale - smallest being 1mm - so on the 290 (back element only - moved to front) gave f290. Ahem! A very handy lttle beastie.

Normally I mainly worked with a 203mm Ektar and mostly with f32 or f45, which plus back movements gave extraordinary DOF and other controls.
