Anne St Uniting Church

I have been trying to reduce the grain size and increase sharpness I have been realising in my prints. As part of my experimenting I loaded Ilford Delta 100 and took a different route to work. I tried to capture the early morning sun hitting the church spire to see if I could capture the tonal range (handheld, om4, 1/125, 128mm Tamron f2.8, Ilford DDX developer) - I had to shoot wide open to get the shutter speed required for hand-holding. The DDX and Delta 100 combination certainly seems to make a huge difference compared with what I was achieving before, I will now have to try the DDX with HP5. I would love to get some comments or hints about how to further improve ...
