It's not so much the camera as it is the lens. The quality of the glass, the bigger f stops, and such you get with a more expensive, higher quality lens.

The argument of the camera is only as good as the photographer makes it is kind of irrelevant to the topic on hand because what we are discussing is more expensive doesn't always mean better. You have to eliminate the human factor kind of. You understand what I'm trying to say because I don't know if it is clear*.

Very nice work. I'll be sure to look through it all later when I have the chance.
I still don't like the presentation of digital as much as I love the saturation of color film.
It just looks too artificial for me.
I work with digital off and on, it's a real love hate relationship. I'm not taking a B&W film course for the first time in 6 years, so I'm going to be working with digital for the time being.

I never did a real photography training mainly because the first class is all B&W and basics which I was able to learn on my own. I got help from pro's and such, but hey I love color too much to avoid it for 3 semesters of photography. Anyhow, I understand the romantic love for film, but I can't help but admit for someone with my lifestyle that digital has made it easier and more practical for a guy like me.

Definitely.
I have yet to work with color film because it's so difficult to find somewhere to work with it in a darkroom around here and the places that you can rent are horrendously priced.
I threw a fit last week when I found out my college wasn't offering an Adv. B&W class this semester because I have already taken the others.
So I'm going to be working with a lot of digital. I still need to learn to do some of the HDR enhancements like you have of your shot down the row of crops.

I want to bow down to nakhla to but so far I burned 2 bowls of mizo peach. I know alot of people will say its my fault because im not packing it right but I pack it exactly how i've been told on my nakhla post. I even got double apple to smoke and not burn, I just don't smoke da anymore because I don't like it (yeah I said it, big whoop, wanna fight about it) lol.

I think it might be a bad batch, I got a package coming from hj with some mandarin, earl grey, margurita. Hopefully those turn out good. But until then I will keep trying.

True, but I was speaking of moist (25%) tobacco that you might get at some shops, mostly Turks and Arabs:P.

I agree on the part that more expensive equipment does not equal better smoking experience for instance I can't stand Fantasia, all of the flavors I tried taste almost the same and very chemically... It has been a while since I last tried Nakhla but I dont really think that is has changed alot. Maybe I will give it another try at some point xD.

Too bad you don't live close to me. I'd have you over for a nice bowl of Nakhla peach. That way I could show you first hand how to set up. It's not difficult.

Take your time, never rush.
I use my Egyptian bowl, metal screen, 1 QL (3Kings atm), and wind cover. Add / remove windcover as needed.

The clouds are not enormous, but the flavor is great.

When I first started smoking hookah I also really liked Nakhla. Firstly because it is so cheap and because I haven't really tasted a lot of other flavors. As of present my favorite brand is Al Sultan, the fine cut can be compared to premium brands and the taste of most of the flavors (except rose, that's the worst stuff I have ever tasted) are very pleasant. I also tend to get a Hookah Headache with Nakhla...

Bu hey, if you like a certain brand, stick with it
