What a wonderful collection!
Like Orio, I was reminded of HC-B in no2 but also in 3 - dramatic stuff.
I love the tones of that Agfa, and what did you develop in?

Cosmin,

Did you scan the negatives, or made prints and scanned them? On my monitors they look a touch on the light side.

Thank very much ... and nice to see you again Smile

Film was developed in Rodinal 1:100 for one hour.

No, these are film scans (Epson V200, not the best) and I corrected their histogram/levels only. To me they seem ok.

Yes... it's the so called 'stand development' and there are many variations of it http://www.flickr.com/groups/rodinal/discuss/72057594127302566/ Wink

Shocked strange
very interesting, thanks for the link!
What are the advantages of this method?
(and possible disadvantages?)

Well, the temperature does not have to pe precisely 20 degree Celsius, if one have a tank which can take more film rolls these can be developed all together no matter their kind (Agfa 100 with TriX 400... etc. for example).
ON the other side, you got less contrasty negatives with more tonal range so seems better for scanning and enalarging (where you can use contrast paper if you want it more contrasty the picture to be) Smile

Interesting! Thank you very much!!
I love the tonal quality of these images.

As you said, you can always push contrast on printing.
I will test this method.
Do you develop in a normal tank? Or do you need to use a different container?
