Image taking for me has always been about observation. A voyeuristic approach to life helps. Due to modern ways this can be conceived otherwise. So an absence of body defends one against these modern times. Mark Daniel

Rodinal is very versatile indeed, this is not a go to method in my view, but you can get some nice results using it with XP2 Super. I did have a couple of bad results using C-41 on this film and tried this after much deliberation. I did reduce the development temp and this seems to have assisted contrast, grain and for those modernists, I get a very liner histogram on the scans. Others have struggled with this from the articles on flickr. Hopefully this helps those that get this far.
