Nice one. Glasgow is worth at least a week's of any visitor's time.

Thanks, Mike. This new building, housing the City's transport collection, is outstanding. Just out of shot to the right is the sailing ship, Glenlee. It also makes a great subject to photograph. Well worth a look if you're in the area and, like all the Glasgow museums, entry is free.

Impressive photograph and well printed too. Just out of interest how long do you develop the Foma for in ID11?

Thanks Tony and Steve. This was my first time using Foma 400, so I rated it at 400 and developed it according to Massive Dev Chart in ID11 stock for 8mins at 20c. Agitation was constant for the first minute, then 10secs per minute. This was quite a contrasty scene, but the film retained detail, including the deep shadows. I printed them quite dark as I felt it helped the graphic nature of the scene. The scan seems to accentuate grain which is not as obvious on the print.i was quite pleased with this film and will use it again.

Nice architectural shot Alex. As you say good shadow retention. I must get to Glasgow soon!

Hi Alex. I think you've made the best of this. The museum feels like it should be a great subject, but I struggled to find a vantage point I liked.
This is bold and graphic- I like the suggestion of a gaping, shark tooth mouth!
Never tried the foma 400. How does it compare to HP5 for you??

Thanks Derek and Colin. I liked my first try with the Foma. As has been pointed out previously by Richard Gould, it gives a good rendering of the sky, even without a filter. It does show more obvious grain than HP5. I would certainly use it again, although I do like the Ilford films.

It *is* a gorgeous print in person, I also liked the decision to make this bold and contrasty, rather in keeping with the subject itself!


I find the scanning process makes grain much more prominent also.
