Here is a comparison; Velvia 50 1) shot and developed normally and 2) overexposed a stop and pulled FD -2min.
You can see that the process actually increases highlight detail.
Shadow density is about the same because this is fresh material with no fog. If there was fog, it would decrease in pulling but I don't have examples scanned.
Well that'd be right for fresh film, if it is run by a lab/standard process.

But if you are doing your own, I suggest you try it sometime with fresh film by a way of other than decreasing developing time, ie: I'd suggest diluting first dev, or possibly adding extra restrainer.
If you mix your own, you can also increase hydroquinone to phenidone/metol ratio for more contrast.
Well, I hauled the box out and it is Fujichrome 50D and 64T and not Velvia. I have a few other things going at the moment, but will test it shortly. Thanks for the advice. JohnW
