I just want to find out whether I'm doing something wrong or my observations are typical for Delta 400
I've tried Delta 400 several times in different developers and dilutions but could't get the look I wanted.
In general I like look of APX100, APX400 or HP5+, but I'd prefer smaller grain.
I developed delta 400 in rodinal special (different EI). The grain was fine, but the images looked gray (like digital).
HC110 was not much better.
Rodinal - very grainy.
IL-11 - (1+1) grain was as big as it of HP5+ in Ilfosol 3, but the contrast was to high (highlight were not blown). Images looked very harsh.
Where did I go wrong?
A useful advice will be appreciated.
