    A little looks like infrared...

    The large amount of noise gives this series of photographs a painting effect.
    Think of the great masters of pointillism.

    Thank you

    @chester54
    Yes, it dose have that infrared look about it. I intend to try this development on a fresh roll of HP5 to see if the results are similar or if he age of this film affected the results.

    @marcomaestro
    HP5 is quite grainy and this being an out of date film, it had the potential to be even more so. Also all of the information I found, said that Tetenal Paranol S is not the ideal developer for HP5, never the less that's what I had, so that's what I went with.
    The resultant negatives do show quite pronounced grain. Once I had scanned the negatives, I put them into Lightroom. I keep my post processing fairly simple, just tweaking the exposure, brightness, contrast etc. But the greatest improvement as far as grain is concerned, was dropping the clarity to -85. Not only has this softened the grain but, it has given some of the images an almost ethereal look.
