and even grander seeing experiments re-discovering the joys of film

well done!

perspective with a wide angle is a major challenge & one of the major draw backs of shooting with a digital M as there are no tilt/shift lenses available for this system, perhaps the only attraction of the typ 240 for me

with film of course, the problem persists

I think you managed this problem well, but I'll confess to a strong bias for avoiding such strong perspective, to the my photography's detriment, as well as my back's as I stretch my arms to get the camera high enough to minimize tilt

sometimes this cannot be done & framing with the camera above one's head is very dicey

hope this isn't impertinent, but I wonder why you used such fast film here

loving my Heliar which is of similar vintage to yours, I know that its DOF is very generous on the far end & suspect this one was taken in sufficient light to get enough shutter speed using slower media

of course a major disadvantage of film is the inability to change sensitivity with the flip of a switch

lastly it was a pleasure seeing some real grain for a change ...thanks for sharing this lovely photograph
