    Not too bad, though I've never seen a landscape in rodinal that I liked. They are all just too grainy.

    Thankyou so much everyone, the grain could be down to age and possibly too much agitation got 3 more old rolls of Delta 400 so will try a different developer and less agitation and see what happens, also got 4 rolls of FP4 and HP5 to play with

    Typically I don't like this much grain - but it really does add something special to the image. I have some outdated film that I might have to expose. Thanks for the inspiration and GREAT print!

    That doesn't look like corn to me. Granted it does look like a field of wheat or something.

    This reminds me of when I was a kid in Weston On Trent, walking home from school through wheat fields, a long time ago.
    Thanks for posting this shot.
