I wanted to shoot some green foliage with a red filter so instead of using my usual standard Efke R50, I opted for some TXP 120 that I had lying around, about a year past date but stored in temperate climate.
I'm a stickler for critical process control and developed it in Xtol 1:1. The negs look fine. Density is great.
Right now I am now printing them and YIPES!, The Grain! An 8x10 from 6x7 neg and it looks 35mm Tri X in Rodinal. I am new to Xtol and haven't done much with TXP 120 but have found the 35mm Tri X that I have done in it to have pretty fine grain.
The prints look fine but the grain is totally unexpected. Any thoughts?
