I love plants world in general but most the trees and I have myself lots of shots with trees (most of them on medium format). Their shapes and textures fascinates me.Hi John. I too take lots of photographs of trees. I really like the third one. The first two look a bit contrasty with no shadow detail on my screen. What film developer are you using, by the way?
Thanks for your time and support. I will give it a try as you suggested as soon as possible. Still have some Foma 100. should I shot at 50EI?John, look at the tonality in Alan's image it's possible to get similar from Fomapan 100 & 200, and probably Fomapan 400 with more effort.

This is a Tmax 100 or Agfa AP100 in Rodinal 3 to 100. With Foma films you need to use half the box speed as the starting point and cut the development time to compensate then they behave like other films.

This is 120 Fomapan 200 at 100 EI in Pyrocat HD, but in Rodinal 1 to 50 it'd be quite similar. Foma films are great but need some taming to get the best results.
I've never shot Foma 200 or 400, but I shoot quite a bit of Foma 100 in 5x4 and 10x8 and using an EI, as suggested by Ian, and with reduced development this film provides beautiful, smooth tonality.
