I’m talking about this picture:

I took this a couple of months ago. I shot it on Ilford HP5+ and then scanned it in at 3600 DPI.

I then printed this picture around 15 inches tall.

HP5+ is an ISO 400 film. It’s supposed to be grainy. Well, “supposed” due to physics.

You can definitely tell the grain in the sky. But when I look at the details on the roof the conservatory, I see nothing but pure detail — no grain and no pixels.

The amazing thing is that this is all old tech.

And the old tech is sometimes as good as the new tech.
