i have just scan some Tmax 400 @3200 and the result is far better ! I think TriX is like HP5+ : good but don't push it
I don't really like HP5+. I've shot it at 200 and its looked quite good but I wouldn't like to push it.

On a completely different subject, I come to Paris quite a lot but this year we plan to spend Christmas in Paris. Do you know if many restaurants/bistro's are open on Christmas day?

Your results are looking better. Here is some general info about BW films if you haven't heard or read about it already. Films like Tri-X and HP5 are the old-school cubic grain films. And Kodak's T-Max, Ilford's Delta and Fujifilm's Neopan films are tabular grain films. When first introduced, these tabular grain films were advertised as finer grain film for the same effective speed as the older cubic grain emulsions. The two emulsions can produce a different look.

Christmas, in 10 months ?? Yes, everything is open, during december, almost every shop is open 7/7 days, at least in Paris.

Paris for Christmas is nice, even though it gives a feeling that everyone is always running everywhere.

I suggest you to book as early as possible to keep the price as low as possible, because for christmas, price usually goes sky high in hotels.

I knew the Tmax was newer than TriX, but i didn't realize the difference was that much pronounced. Sad for Kodak but i prefer the result of the Delta 400 when pushed the grain is finer and the the lesser contrast allow better scanning and recovery (Ok, that's cheating !). However i don't regret to have tried 3 rolls of each. it was a great first start with Kodak B&W film.

On the other side, nothing beats the Portra for me at that moment : i love the saturation, color, rendition.

So Ilford for B&W and Kodak for color. Sounds fair to me

On this one, i cheated and ask the lab the picture where too important to fail the processing. there was some picture i knew would be too perfect to 'd up somewhere.

This one for exemple : Pentax Super A / DA*55 @1.7 or 2 ? / Tmax 400@3200

Nice. You gotta admire that C-4 for still getting a shot. Last summer I went to the 10th Annual Kirkland Concours d'Elegance show. I had some fun just shooting the hood ornaments of all the old cars that year.

Thanks. It is one thing that I like about this particular process.

Thanks. I enjoy using the Argus. There is just something about the rangefinder mechanism, the winding and the clunky, grindy sounding shutter that makes it fun to use.

I also like the hood ornaments on these old rides, some of them are incredible. I have some good shots of them, but can't post them here since they are digital.

Nice shot, I also just noticed the two birds (storks??) at the back of the boat!
I have a soft spot for fishing boat and shoot them here in Vancouver a lot.

Thank you. I like the commercial fishing boats too. Here, they are constructed of wood and built by hand locally, no two are exactly the same.

The birds are pelicans, and that couple can be found right there on the transom of Capt Phillips' trawler nearly every morning when she is port.

Thanks for that. I'll get the hotel booked soon. I'll have to wait until August before I can book Eurostar tickets.
