That's some pretty cool ice. You're not going to tell us what gear you used?

Those are wonderful.

The ability to use wide latitude film developed with even greater latitude is the chemical equivalent of Photoshop.

It really is. I'm really happy with results.

I've not used HP5 for decades, but it's rated ISO 400 out of the box if I recall, so you shot it at ISO 1250 - underexposing by 2 stops, right? Then pushed development by 3 stops @ 1600 to build up the density. What does that do in effect? Does it give the shadows a kick and lift your mid-tones while retaining detail in the highlights? Just trying to contrast (excuse the pun) versus if you had shot it at ISO 400 and developed it normally @400. I'm guessing you effectively expanded the dynamic range for such a high contrast subject.

To be honest I just did something that I saw someone did here on forum. It was my first time doing that and I just started developing few days ago. But I like your explanation
