When I first set up to take this picture with my Toyo View VX-125 large-format film camera, I selected my Rodenstock Sironar-M 150mm lens, but quickly figured it was not wide enough for the shot. So I went back to my Jeep Wrangler and grabbed my Rodenstock Sironar-M 135mm lens and took this picture. I still wasn’t happy that I couldn’t get the entire dam in the picture, so went back and go my seldom-used Komura Super 75mm wide-angle lens and took a shot. After comparing the two shots, I remembered why I didn’t really care for the Komura wide-angle lens. It is a bit soft and I am just not a fan of wide-angle lenses on 4×5 cameras, and 75mm is seriously wide. Hence the reason I seldom shoot my Komuray 75mm lens.
