    Looks great!

    It you're scanning most of your film, XP2 should have no problem shooting at f/1.9 even in broad daylight. It handles overexposure really well and scans alot better than real black and white.

    I shoot my 80 1.9 wide open a ton (usually use PanF+ and a yellow filter in bright sun), works like a charm.

    Only "issue" is that the 1.9, when wide open, has a focus sweet spot of something like +/- 1 inch! Be prepared to blow a ton a film when wide open; but, when you hit focus, it can be breathless....

    Wow, fabulous use of selective focus. Hugely different style than we usually get from the great sand pile.

    Very, very well done.

    If you want to see what XP2 looks like off a scanner, I can send you some examples.. IMO it is so much better than real B&W for minilab scanning, I won't touch Tri-X, HP5, or Tmax for 400 speed B&W anymore. The grain and gradations are just night-and-day different.

    now in a darkroom....that's totally different.
