I quite like the MF B&W film look, and have tried to copy it using my 5D & 85mm though am unsure if I've achieved the right result or not.

The result:

i like the photo, however the only thing that jumps out as being "medium format" is the fact that it's square (there are many configurations of medium format 6x6, 6x4.5, 6x7 etc)

My MF camera is a Mamiya 6x4.5. The medium format effect is more that of extended tonal range rather than dimension. MF's advantage is the large negative/slide size which allows for more tonality in the final image when compared to smaller formats.
