    Getting back to topic...

    Jerry, the subject on your photo is not what Diafine is made for. The forest that you photographed has very low contrast. In addition, the grain caused by Rodinal is somewhat hidden by the structure of the trees.

    Diafine is great when it comes to scenes with a lot of contrast: night shots, bands on stage etc. - that's what it's made for, to get as much ASA as possible in high-contrast scenes. It's not very suitable for scenes with low contrast because it dampens the highlights.

    If you had tried the same film and the same developers with a street photo at night your verdict would be totally different.
    The future belongs to the few of us still willing to get our hands smell like fixing bath.

    Thanks CMO, I take your point.

    In fact, one of my favorite photos is of the NYC Public Library Periodical room. It was a dark room, with bright light coming through the windows. See:

    I intend to tinker some more with these two developers and will keep your advice in mind.

    Thanks!
    Jerry
