  1. Nice! I love the tones across the work.

      Thanks Stephen. This is the first roll of HP5 Plus I’ve shot. I like it, it’s a bit grainy (maybe too grainy for landscapes?) so I’m looking forward to shooting some street photography with it especially at night for which I think it will be excellent (lots of ‘character’).


      • Whilst I don’t do much film, I tend to steer away from HP5 for landscape work – though having said that, if the light is flat and you’re looking at micro landscapes instead of vistas, the ‘character’ can be very useful.

        Any suggestions for a good landscape film? I’ve used T-Max 100 and quite like that. I was wondering about Ilford Pan F Plus, FP4 Plus and Delta 100. I have no experience with these films.
