I posted this recently in the MF thread. This is a 6x6 cropped to 4:5 aspect so it's more like a shot from a 645 in terms of negative size. Here is 400TMY with a crop added. When I develop 400TMY to get these highlights in, I get grain about as fine as 100TMX. And when 100TMX or 100ACR is done this same way, the grain is really fine.
What developer did you use and what kind of times are we talking? (:

PMK Pyro developer. I added 3 stops of exposure and cut the normal development time by almost 1/2.

Hm, maybe Mr. NoMaD_PS should be the one apologizing if he intentionally posted-and-dashed. I mean, no doubt we all have a digital camera here ( yes Phil, I know ) so I'd be a little puzzled what he's trying to say if true.

More evidence that I need to try Pyro. I've wanted, for a long time, to try Pyro HD. (: I use rodinal right now because I love the grain in the films I use (Neopan, Tri-X).

PMK and the staining class of developers that use stain for compensation are good for high contrast scenes with normal development times too. With stand development in Rodinal, you can get about the same thing in terms of compensation with good density range, I've found. My only issue with stand and Rodinal is the seemingly random uneven development I experience with 120 roll and sheet film.

I suspect that he unintentionally posted here thinking it was the monochrome thread in the share your photos section. He has posted similar digital stuff in the past on other sections of the site.

That being said, why would you doubt that it is a film shot beyond some interesting boundaries and the fact that he has not posted here before? That kind of tonality is easily attained with appropriate film and expert technique using medium or large format kit. (At least that has been the case historically and you also seem to pull it off )

Could be but look at Wuzets shots above. Tmax 100 on medium format and you can still make out the grain.
That's Caffeinol for you. Ditto for Rodinal. I have never shot TMax 100 on medium format, but I have done Acros 100 and Ektar 100. Skies are clear, clear, clear with FG-7 1+15 for Acros. Of course it helps that the scans for publication on the Web from a 6x7 negative are only about 500 dpi and grain just sort of evaporates.

That is my suspicion too and perhaps he is away from responding to notifications. I doubt it like the others before me, I guess. It looks to have zero grain and a lot like what comes out my digital camera.

According to his profile, he is from Moldova (between Ukraine and Romania). That may explain the lack of reply (time zones, ya know). One thing is obvious...He certainly has good technique.

No doubt and once again proving it is what you do with your gear.
