    I'm amazed by what the posters here have captured using film!

    If I had to deal with the many hassles of using film for this type of photography, I'm almost certain I wouldn't bother with it. <shrug>

    Apart from a longer exposure time, it's no different than a daytime shot to meter, develop and scan.

    The longer exposures required due to reciprocity failure effects are certainly troubling enough, but the lack of dynamic range that can be recorded using film compared to what can be recorded by a top-of-the-line CMOS sensor is the real deal-killer for me.

    YMMV, of course!

    True but if you missed it I was using Acros. No reciprocity failure for the first 120 seconds and optional if you want to apply their 1/2-stop correction recommendation thereafter.

    I have the opposite sentiment about digital sensors compared to film
    Try color negative...

    The lack of DR from your film may be due to your scanner. Typically, BW film can record measurable density differences way up in the 2.5 and 2.8 range. The problem becomes reproducing it on the second generation image if you also want to include density around the base + fog too.
