Conflicted and overexposed...

I'm having a love/hate relationship with the second half of photos from my last roll of ilford xp2.

On the one hand I am so disappointed with myself for not checking one of the fundamental switches on my diana mini (N not B, N not B) which means they are blurry and so overexposed... and the gardens at Harlow Carr were so pretty I was looking forward to sharing some lovely photos.

Yet on the other, I like the tones of the overexposure and the extreme grainyness of these photos - its almost like they've been painted with light...

What do you think? I'm completely torn over them...
