Here is another simple image of a CAT bulldozer. I have a 32"x48" print on canvas which really does the large format some justice. If anyone is interested, I can post a full res so you can get a taste for what large format negative captures. These resized images really don't do the negatives much justice.

I use Epson v700 which is great for negatives.

The detail even shows up in the posted size. Looks like you've got the focus/DOF just perfect as well.

I really do miss 4x5- I only shot with it very occasionally but it's such a nice format.

Thanks Daniel - This was taken on my first trip with the 4x5 setup that came with Kodak Ektar 152 4.5. Being a rookie, I opened it wide open to get the most visible image on the ground glass and took this shot. I like how everything turned out but it would have been nice to play with a little tilt to add more dramatic DOF.

I really like the format because it slows me down and makes me think about everything.

Nice. It has a certain "richness" about it. A touch more contrast might be nice, but it feels wrong to be suggesting a Photoshop tweak to an image shot on 4x5 film...

Thanks Paul and agreed with the contrast. You certainly hit on one of the things that I try to find a balance with when digitizing negatives. I do have a full darkroom setup to enlarge prints and contrast, dodge, and burn are very common darkroom techniques. I usually don't mind playing with these settings in my digital workflow but I tend to stay away from things that I can't reproduce in a wet darkroom.
