Challenge has finished
Your challenge is to create a photograph that relates to Group f/64. Black & White only. Include the name of the photographer whose work you are emulating. [History of Group f/64, from Wikipedia] - Group f/64 was a group of seven 20th century San Francisco photographers who shared a common photographic style characterized by sharp-focused and carefully framed images seen through a particularly Western (U.S.) viewpoint. In part, they formed in opposition to the Pictorialist photographic style that had dominated much of the early 20th century, but moreover they wanted to promote a new Modernist aesthetic that was based on precisely exposed images of natural forms and found objects. The members were: Ansel Adams, Imogen Cunningham, John Paul Edwards, Sonya Noskowiak, Henry Swift, Willard Van Dyke and Edward Weston.

Notes: M43 is portable, GH2 shoots 1x1, B&W natively, lovely lens. One downside, I know -- small sensor, and getting this with f16 would have resulted in far darker image than I wanted, with more grain...
