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 I have some outdated film that I might have to expose.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.

The word "corn" has many different meanings depending on what country you are in. Corn in the United States is also called maize or Indian corn. In some countries, corn means the leading crop grown in a certain district. Corn in England means wheat; in Scotland and Ireland, it refers to oats. Corn mentioned in the Bible probably refers to wheat or barley.

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.
