I've liked this combo before, but daaaamn! This time, it turned really warm. I think the DMax decreased, too. I toned for 8 minutes in fresh KRST with a dash of Kodalk. I had used Dektol 1:2 developer, and TF-4 fixer, with fresh water for stop bath. Oh, and it was 1+20 selenium toner dilution (deionized water).
The paper looks a little greenish out of the wash (my normal experience, Ilford and Seagull do too), and the Selenium usually takes this out, even makes it a little chocolatey brown. But the DMax usually looks better than before toning. I'm sure it is a PH thing, or temperature, or something leading to the toner being overly active. What surprised me is that the darkest shadows seem lighter. I haven't used selenium at stronger dilutions much, but I always guessed that the blacks would stay black, rather than lighten and take on a hue, if toned too much.
The paper was a little on the old side, but I doubt that was it.
The DMax looked good until I took it out of the toner. I noticed it changing while I toned, but it seemed like the highlights changed hue much more slowly than the shadows, and I didn't want a split toned look.
Anybody else experienced this?
