Toronto HP5 Pushed to 1600 with a Leica

It's been a while since I shot with one of my Leicas, and I also wanted to use up what's left of my bulk loaded HP5. For kicks and giggles I pushed it to 1600 ISO and processed in Tmax Developer with a 1+4 dilution. I went with my M4-2 with my Canon 50 f1.4 (Japanese Summilux) lens and kept it simple. It was liberating granted after a while slushy Toronto in February wears thin, even for those of us who like winter and ski every weekend.

I love pushing Tri-X, especially in Xtol, love what I get in that developer, same for HC110. Now I haven't pushed HP5 in a long time and had some Tmax Developer. Do I like this combination? It's not bad. I love HP5 around or slightly overexposed at box speed. I have to figure out the sweetspot for push processing.

Camera: Leica M4-2, Canon 50 f1.4 LTM lens.
Film: Ilford HP5 400, pushed to 1600, Tmax Dev 1+4.
