Looks like neopan to me!! very distinctive look with those punchy blacks and
silvery grays. Lovely. The only modification I can suggest is trying it in
Xtol 1:3 which will give you a mite more speed and highlight control, and
exagerrate the sharpness somewhat. At the risk of a slight grain increase.
Shooting in contrasty situations like this it can help.
