    The tonal scale of 320TXP, a continuous upsweeping curve, doesn't appear "nice" to me. I very much prefer the straight line and smooth look of TMY-2 to 320TXP's coarse grain and hot highlights. I'm capable of controlling process to expose adequately and achieve a contrast index appropriate for whatever paper I'll be printing on.

    Perhaps what you should have said was "I don't like TMY-2 as much as 320TXP." That would be a perfectly valid statement and immune to disagreement.

    Keith read the thread!? <sigh> He can come back whenever he likes, he just needs to play by the same rules as the rest of us mere mortals and hes decided not to.

    Oh, I read it, and I understand your point. I just wonder whether the intervening time might have been enough to let the point sink in. If not, well, the Earth will keep rotating on axis.

    What you all have said about my development is fair enough. To be perfectly honest, I have learned a lot more about exposing film properly since I took the TMY2 pictures. I have a couple more rolls of TMY2 in my fridge, I guess I will give them a reprieve, with better exposure and more conservative development...

    I don't see any blotches either, but I see a lot of dirt, like on the hood of the car in the picture you mentioned. That's dust on your negative.

    Yes, I keep the negatives in a large cardboard box, no cover. I understand that there is dust on them, and that the dust has nothing to do with the quality of the film.
