Landscapes in B&W

The cement works at Castleton might be an eyesore on the landscape but it adds some interest in these conditions.

Marko, this is very typical of the 'fast' 400 ASA B&W films of the 1950s through to the 1970s.

In the 1960s, I used Adox KB14, KB17 and KB21 films for normal use. These were ASA 25, 50 and 100, respectively. KB 21 was considered 'fast'. Agfa made B&W films up to 400 ASA, which were very grainy, even using fine grain developers such as Ultrafin. Later, ASA 1600 films became available, but they were almost binary!
This is why I can't see noise (or grain) as a reason lowering the quality of a photograph. Majority of my film based pictures are grainy, some like hell 😂

Today, I struggled with something very peculiar: There's such a thing as "too well corrected" - I simply didn't manage a truely dramatic super-wide image ...

On the flip side, I think the inexpensive Nikon Z 12-28mm f/3.5-5.6 DX PZ should make a fabulous architecture lens ... I'll use it for something very similar soon.
