Many people new to printing tend to pull their prints from the developer too soon. Make sure that you follow the developer recommendation for the correct time. Kodak recommends 2 to 3 minutes @ 68F for their developers. Pulling a print will result in lower contrast and lack of detail. Print development is said to go to completion which means to keep prints in the developer until you observe that there is little change in the print with time.
thanks, good tip. I'll keep that in mind.
