    Thanks for the kind words Tillman I've also missed keeping up and viewing everyone's images. I'll try to post more from now on... Lefty

    Not been posting on here much of late - pleased to be back and to see that the standard just keeps getting better! TK - love the beetles image. Wonderfully natural (yet vibrant) colours. Here's one from the archives which I've only just got round to processing: Soleil by Amar Sood, on Flickr Nikon D800E / Tamron 70-200mm f2.8 Lefty

    Gorgeous butterflies Keith! Here's one from my second roll of home developed film. This time I used HP5+ (shot at box speed) instead of Kodak Tri-X. Unfortunately, I had a really difficult time getting the roll onto the developing reel. It was very hot / humid and the roll started to stick together. I was able to pull it apart, but as you can image, this left the film in a heavily scratched state. This is one of the few relatively unaffected frames. Despite this setback, I'm very pleased with the look of Ilford HP5+. Next on my list is Fujifilm Acros 100.

    Thanks Ben - yes, love the grain of Tri-X. Speaking of grain, here's another from that roll. Graintastic! Sphere by Amar Sood, on Flickr Nikon F80 / Tokina 100mm f2.8 Macro / Kodak Tri-X 400 Lefty

    Love '34 St' Ben Pleased to say I just successfully developed my first roll of film! (Kodak Tri-X 400.) I'm pleased to say it was not as hard as a I feared. (I had a 'moment' when I was loading the film onto the developing reel, but other than that, it was remarkably straightforward). In terms of chemistry, I played it safe and went for Ilfosol-3, Ilfostop and Ilford rapid fixer. Times were obtained from the massive dev chart. All in all, it took me about 1hr 30mins from start to finish. I was being very slow and deliberate. Next time I hope to cut it down to around 1hr. Enough waffle, here's a shot from my very first home developed roll (I even worked up the courage to ask a stranger if I could take their portrait!).

    +1 excellently timed capture Richard Here's another film image. This was shot with Ilford HP5+ 400 which was pushed 2 stops to 1600. (Not sure I'll be doing that again!). Strobilus by Amar Sood, on Flickr Nikon F80 / Tokina 100mm f2.8 Macro / Ilford HP5+ 400 (pushed to 1600) Lefty

    Thank you Richard! I must admit, I've not picked up the D800E since the plastic fantastic F80 arrived. It has been really fun getting back into film. Such a different experience. Both terrifying and exciting. Unfortunately, it's also quite expensive!! Lefty

    Here's one from my first roll of Portra 400 in the F80. I think this may become my 'goto' film. Love the colour rendering and wonderful dynamic range. It's also superb on skin tones Gaia by Amar Sood, on Flickr Nikon F80 / Nikkor 50mm f1.8D / Kodak Portra 400 Lefty
