I wonder if I’ve been wrong about L110, which is a Kodak HC-110 developer clone — at least as pertains to Kodak T-Max 400.

I’ve panned L110 for delivering soft results that sometimes defy sharpening via Photoshop’s unsharp mask command. But this image looks plenty sharp. And for having been scanned on my flatbed scanner, it’s pretty smooth.

I think my scanner is the weak link in my process for sharing images with you. It’s probably as good as a flatbed scanner can be.

At any rate, T-Max 400 in L110 1+63 appears to be a winning combination.

    Fun wall painting.
    Minds are strange. The b/w and a couple of the color shots couldn’t figure or understand the back of the chair. Combination of window and angle guessing. Clearest to me was the first color shot, though the longer I relook easier to see.

    Very nice, Jim. That’s some photogenic building art, for sure. However, what draws me into this image more than anything are the clouds and their arrangement.

        Yes, it is. The very first time I ever shot T-MAX (both 100 and 400) that was the thing that immediately struck me about it. The sky was rendered much darker than most traditional films and thus cloud-sky separation was phenomenal.
