    I finally managed a decent print on Lodima. Contact printed an 8x10 HP5+ negative (developed in Pyrocat-HD). Lodima was developed in Amidol. I also developed a print in Neutol WA 1+15 which turned out nicely. The Amidol print was cooler, which I preferred for this particular image.
    In Amidol, the exposure time was a bit faster compared to the Neutol WA exposure. One minute as apposed to 1:20. Both were developed for one minute and toned in Selenium 1+40 for two minutes.

    Here is a link to the image. I know it's not the same as holding an actual print in your hand...oh well.

    Nice. As you say no substitute for holding the real thing. Perhaps we should do a Lodima exchange?

    A Lodima exchange is a great idea.
