    When I was learning about photo history the pictorialist photos were often reproduced in books poorly and online photos were from said books. They liked moody tones...

    You could use auto touch up paint and if you can't put down a thin layer, fine/wet sand it smooth.

    Re: Strange black blur spots on 4x5 320 Trix

    I would guess dust on the film before exposure. Clean in side the camera, film holders, keep film holders in antistatic bags or atleast ziplock bags.
