My VW 1965
Shot with Rollei - was an experiment that went bad
Developed in D23 and fixed in TF3 (As we don't have any other chemicals available here)
I would be happy to know what I can do with development to improve. I guess this film needs to be overexposed a few stops and then developed a bit longer to get some detail (but what will happen to whites then), as I believe this is a pure black and white film with no mid-tones.
Any help will be much appreciated. I like the resolution of the film a lot, and hence want to take a portrait of my wife...can't mess that one up :)
I'd suggest you read Barry Thornton's articles on personal film speed and personal development times - The results will depend very much on your final printing process. Developing for scanning will produce a different set of times to the ones needed for traditional enlarging/printing.

It just looks seriously underexposed to me. You didn't mention if you shot it at box speed or what, nor how you metered---it looks as if it might have ended up well exposed for the sky, so maybe you just took your reading at a bad angle?
