What happens to BW400CN when severely under exposed. I'd call this reticulation rather than grain

Nesster,

Regardless of what you call it it is an excellent picture.

I thought reticulation was caused by temperature extremes during film development, not by faulty exposure.

Mikey, thank you - yes, that's the true source of reticulation. The grain in BW400CN looks like reticulation, is what I meant

Here's vintage Kodachrome grain, from 1972, with a half-frame Olympus Pen FT:

That's.... An unusually-friendly-looking camel.

That is a very happy looking camel.
I'll bet he has something other than water in his hump.

Nesster, I really like the grain in those shots! For some reason I'm drawn to the grainy, contrasty high-speed black and white look.

Thanks- I like Fomapan, their 100 speed is fantastic. The 400 seems to give an old fashioned look, which I like. I read it doesn't push well, and I probably should have extended the development time... plus it was the dregs of the Ilfosol, so perhaps the developer was tired too. My daughter's shots came out better
