    Hey, Luis. Your work is quite good. That self portrait has wonderful tonality and texture. The general school of thought for long exposures is that the lower ISO films tend to have less obvious grain than the higher ones. I would tend to try films like Pan F 50 or FP4 Plus rather than 400 speed films, but try a few and see what you like, for that is the only thing which really matters.

    I've had great luck with Acros at night. It does well at box speed in Rodinal, and I've found it still great at Exposure Index 200 in DD-X. This is 120 size.

    Beautiful shots in there Luis. Your night and dusk shots are very beautiful. As you start moving towards printing in the darkroom you might want to read up here on compensating developers, stand development, and divided development. It does seem from your scans that you're getting good results out of Tri-X already, you will find the ability to tweak development might make your negatives easier to print.

    Do try Pan-F, exceptionally beautiful film.

    Its only natural to lust for more film and equipment, what you need is the 12 step program to fight G.A.S.
