    One of my favorite films. I shot it almost exclusively in my medium and large format cameras for years, and still shoot a lot of it.

    Here are a couple from the Olympus XA.

    And the very first shot I made on my very first Hasselblad, the wonderful 1000F

    Test roll through a recently acquired Kodak Tourist II. Some shots came out ok. I'm not used to developing 120 and I think I could have used a little more volume of soup (DD-X 1+4) in the tank. In any case, the camera works but not sure it's my style of shooting.

    HP5+ rated at 320 ISO. f32 at 1/4 sec using an RB67 with 65 mm "C" lens. Processed in Sprint (1+9) at 20C using a Jobo CPA2. RB001a.jpg

    Crop from right side, expanded a lot! Still see details in shadows and highlights. This is a really nice film - and the large neg doesn't hurt a bit!

    I had a nice silver Nikon FE with a 50mm 1.8 for a minute this summer, managed to shoot a roll of HP5 through it. What a nice camera :) 

    Shots are from Detroit in June/July 2017

    Very nice - I've always enjoyed HP5+ for its great range. Good eye - I especially like the first one.

    My first attempt at shooting this film. Fuji GA645Zi. Still learning how to scan film, lots to learn.

    Nice results - especially for a firt time effort! (mine is somewhere in a landfill!) You might try increasing the contrast just a bit in the scans, could make the images "pop" a bit more. (Course, this just could be my monitor)

    Could be the film - it's very nicely graded with smooth transitions IMO, but certainly not very contrasty. However, this is actually quite desirable because it's reasonably easy to change (or correct) contrast in post because of this - scan to TIFF (no compression), then do post using curves and black/white point correction before exporting to JPEG; the contrast slider and/or a zone system tool might help as well - darktable offers all of these; but it's also simple enough to do from within Polarr ... I took the freedom of downloading your JPEG, and even with that (i.e. from non-optimal data, but a nicely balanced image), Polarr made it almost trivial to enhance contrast without ruining the image (I deleted the result - it's your image; but if you would like me to, I can easily redo it).
