Fuji Pro 400H film discontinued in all formats

I have a few rolls left in 120. No idea why, but it always looked good when I used it in my old folders whereas for 35mm I prefer the Kodak offerings.

It's a fine portrait Gary, love the muted colours and the composition with her pushed to the left slightly giving that area of negative space. It's not a criticism but I would have preferred either...
