    Last night I developed a 35mm film in my usual way - Neopan 400 in Rodinal 1+25 for 4.5 mins, Ilfostop, Hypam fix, wash and air dried. Nothing different from what I normally do. When I looked at the dried negative through the focus finder the whole film was covered in a maze of tiny cracks like crazy paving, which made the final print look really grainy. What happened - what did I do wrong?

    It looks like reticulation= tiny cracks in the emulsion caused by great differences in temperature between liquids used in the dev process. Perhaps the water used for the final wash?
    Digital is best taken with a grain of silver.

    Yes Hans, that's what I think too. Maybe the tap water suddenly became too hot?
