    It’s nice to see you shooting Double-X again. It’s such a wonderful emulsion. Thanks for sharing.

      Thanks very much ā€œPā€ā€”

      This was actually pushed to ISO 400, which I have never done with Double-X before.

      All the best,

        Due to the strong contrast I thought these might have been pushed. But the results are great. The contrast lends itself well to this set of images. I especially like the photo of the distorted window reflections on the office building (I’m assuming that’s what it is).

        I think early on you used Rodinal for developing Double-X as well. Have you tried any developers besides Rodinal and D-76?

        Hi P–

        Yes, the contrast was a giveaway for sure. Thanks on the office window shot–funny enough, I wasn’t actually sure if that photo struck me, or if I should include it. Anyway, glad you enjoyed it!

        As far as developers go, if you mean on Double-X, then those two developers are the only ones I’ve tried.

        Best regards,

        Well, I’m very glad you included the office window shot and it didn’t get left out. I think I like that one so much because the grain of Double-X provides a texture that almost seems tangible to a bunch of surfaces that are in actuality very smooth. It’s not something you typically see, or that generally works well when you do see it. In this case I think it works extremely well.

        Take care.
