    Went out and shot my 2nd roll of B&W film. Per recommendation of many members on this board, I tried HP5. The developer is Rodinal and I did it all myself :D When I fixed it I used 1+9 which I found out later is the solution used for printing. It took 15 minutes to fix. Out of 26 frames, only 2 weren't worth even scanning. I'm pretty happy with all of them but here are 14 of them. Obviously I'm not going to get a serious critique on all 14, but which ones do you like? and why? Thanks

    15 mins to fix????? OMG! in the school darkroom, we use ilford products and it takes 3 mins to fix! because we have a b/w darkroom, they r the only photo's i really take. ur compositions r great, i especially like the angle u have approached the subject in the 8th pic. try using filters in the darkroom to create more contrast between b/w, they r simple to use and really effective. :thumbsup:

    Thank you for your comments

    None of these were actually printed. These are scans directly from the negative. The digital darkroom :D

    I really liked the Fire Hydrant, and the angle you use to photo the left side of the train looking towards its front.

    I like the wheel, light and fire hydrant
    The wheel seems a little grainy but sharp at the time to me

    Off course I like the fire hydrant (see nickname) but I think #9 was still the best.
