    Re: Print contrast issue

    If you decide to intensify, and if the negative has enough meat to it, selenium toning is safe. Soak bath, tone 1:4 to completion, rinse, HCA, wash.

    But good luck in printing!

    Re: 8x10 film processing

    Thanks -- and two 4x10s sounds risky.

    I tray develop 8x10 in the 12x16 trays (rarely now) and 11x14 in 14x18 trays.

    I would say the opposite. Humans get more sexually excited about what they do not see than by what they do see. Sexy clothing is sexy because of what they cover up, not what they show.
