Re: Why?

Hard to say. Although after looking at your samples I still think it’s subject and lighting related, rather than film/processing technical. The Tri-X samples have more directional light and contrasting shapes, whilst your HP5 samples are open overcast scenes with uniform textures.

Perhaps this is a good point of departure from the lab side of things, use this info to your creative advantage (selecting different films for different scenes) and make lemonade from lemons

And when all else fails... Clarity slider 🤣
