Large Format, Black & White

(See also:  Large Format, Color)

This photo gallery has some examples of large format (4x5).  This uses sheet film instead of cartridge or roll film.

These photos were scanned at low to medium resolution using a DSLR.  I'm calling that "low to medium", because even 24MP is still well below the resolving power of large format.
Most of these scans were originally 12 to 16 megapixels. 

For higher-res techniques, see this.

This one might have benefited from a front-tilt movement, which would have put everything in focus.  The way it is, the foreground has some blurring.  Usually that's to the detriment of a photo, but on the other hand it can draw the viewer toward a certain area.  The focus of this picture is primarily the stream, and the low branches hanging over it.
