    Success!!!!

    I developed 6 sheets into two separate runs. Both came out really good so far.

    One thing I noticed was that at least two photos looked pretty dark. I have no idea if that's because the shots were simply underexposed or over developed. I'm going to guess underexposed, but, gotta get them scanned.

    More to follow....it was fun!
    You need to learn to tell the difference. It is not difficult. Horenstein's books on B&W Photography will help. Learning will help a lot in judging negatives in the future as well as in fine tuning your exposure and development technique.

    I assume you meant two negatives look pretty dark -- is that correct? If a negative is dark (dense, hard to see through), then that negative got more exposure than the negatives that are 'thinner' (easier to see through)...and if they are significantly darker than it is over-exposure, not over-development.

    What is your development time for HC-110B with this? I've found I have to stick to the low end of the recommended range.
