Ilford HP5+ in Tmax developer and HC-110

In continuation of this post here i have developed some more test rolls! These images where taken at ASA 400 on some time with the older post. I also have one or two short test rolls form that time.

The first one was developed in Kodak Tmax developer in 1+4 dilution:

The second one is developed with Kodak HC-110 with dilution B (1+31):

For my eye the most noticeable difference is the details in the shadows. Tmax developer seems to give a bit more of of speed there. Also the grain seems a bit more smaller. This is still quite small and both are still quite good developers.

It’s fun to notice that the differences between the developer are quite small and from these three i seem to prefer the Xtol.
