So I way overexposed most of my shots on my first try at night photography. I was going with +3.5 stops or more. Wow, the grain shows big time when it's overexposed. Here are a few of the better shots. Shot on HP5 developed with rodinal. I think I'd like to try another developer for night time shots. Now I know to go closer to the meter.

Here is the Millennium bridge near union station in Denver.

I am smitten with #s 1 and 2..... wow! Impressive.

Isn't Rodinal also supposed to enhance grain? I seem to recall reading that, but I haven't personally used it. Love it!!

Yeah, it does enhance grain. But increased grain does make it look sharper. I've only ever used Rodinal and would like to at least try another developer.

I almost always use the unsharp mask to sharpen up photos. With digital, there is an anti-alias applied to all images (except for the Sigma SD-9) and with scanned photos, it can be somewhat soft.
