And you will notice the scratches on the film. That's a big downfall with this film, but I think I can get better/be more careful.

Yestereday I posted this same scene shot on Kodak Tri-X 320. The Tri-X shot was pretty much exactly how I wanted it. The Fuji HR-T X-Ray shot is also acceptable, but the highlights are a bit blown out and the dark trees on the left have less shadow detail. This was also not a fair comparison (nor was it really meant to be), because I shot the above x-ray photograph at f11 and tray developed it in Rodinol 1:100 for 6 minutes 30 seconds. I developed the Kodak Tri-X negative in Kodak HC11o Developer.

If I had to do this shot over, I would develop it for less time to control the highlights. That said, I continue to be impressed by the Fuji HR-T X-Ray film. The metered time was 30 seconds, but I doubled the time to a full minute considering reciprocity failure. If you want to read more about this x-ray film, I posted my first impressions last week.
