What are some reasons why someone would shoot 35mm film over a DSLR. Can you extract higher image quality from 35mm?

I shoot B&W still a bit, mostly HP5+.  I like the look, I enjoy the process of developing the film, it's nice for a bit of a change sometimes. It's expensive compared to digital, it's not as practical, it's a pain/expensive to get good scans.

A good digital SLR camera is much more practical and can produce equal or better results with less work now.  There's no reason to do it unless you like film and want to shoot film, it's just another artistic medium.
