I have some Fuji Recipes mounted, and I didn't _quite_ realize the difference between these two, until I've printed some of the photos.
The Harsh Acros Monochrome seems much more dramatic in comparison to the Ilford recipe. I think I prefer it because of my lack of skill - it's easier to provoke a response on a dramatic photo, shadows are strong, the blacks are deep, and the story is easy to be found.
Whereas with much more nuanced Ilford recipe, I would really need to work on all aspects of photography: composition, contrast, everything matters. The tonality is much more detailed, and I don't know at all how to convey my story with those tones.
