I cleaned my brick planters with a strong solution of muriatic acid, parts worked will, but one major section turned white with a film. How do I remove the film? The advice I read is to use muriatic acid to remove the film, but that seems to be causing the film on this one section.

Calling all film photographers. What 35mm black and white film should I shoot with? [more inside]
Shooting a black and white 16mm film. It's my first (an "exercise"), and I'm not yet sure of the stock. How do different colors show up when filmed w/ BW film? My specific concerns: how best should I costume my actors so they remain dynamic when photographed (ie. nice deep blacks or pure-ish whites; avoid grey)? Esp: how can I costume them to keep them distinct from the background (grey/brown garage walls). Let me know if you need more info to be helpful; thanks meta people.
