Taken at a local garden centre. I was attracted by the expressions on the frogs' faces. They seemed to be asking for their photo to be taken! Only a small crop used.

Hi Derek. I like this, and it just emphasises what a great film HP5 is for rendering a wide range of mid-tones. I've sometimes heard it described as a poor impersonator of TriX, but it's a different film with completely different character, and has great subtlety.
You didn't end up with a pair of frogs for the garden, did you?

They could not stay, they just hopped off.

Well spotted, Derek! Apart from the humorous subject, the lighting is excellent it brings out all the detail in the statues.
Alex.

As the delighted recipient of this I can vouch for its technical excellence, with a full range of tones which are far better on the real print. Very well spotted and produced. It truly is a delight!
I second the comments on HP5+. It's my 'go to' film as it's so flexible.
