The flooded woods are really nice. They look like Mississippi this spring (2019), but maybe add a few tens of thousands of acres. The 100 film you used looks great. I think most of the contemporary 100-speed films are pretty amazing, especially in Rodinal! Cheers.
The negatives were a little thin, but I was pleased with the contrast and tonality. I'll give the next roll a little more time in the developer.
A commenter on my blog claims the Fomapan 200 is actually an ISO 160 or even 125 film. I have to admit, I shoot the stuff at box speed and the negs are a little thin. I wonder if Fomapan/Arista.EDU 100 is really more like ISO 80 or 50?
That could be right, though the choice of developer and processing time also has to be taken into account. Stand processing may be a useful work-around in many cases where there is some doubt about actual film speed. The other question that comes up is how consistent the characteristics of the film are. Another issue about which I have some uncertainty at the moment is the accuracy of my thermometers. A degree or two can make quite a difference in outcomes. I guess the real answer is that you have to work out your own process with what you have at hand.
I love the porch railing shot.
I like that one too, partly because it demonstrates the marvelous capacities of the Spotmatic SP and the SMC Takumar.
