    I'm just trying to figure out Thomas's logic of "this" instead of "that"?
    It's about perception. On bigger prints it's easier to 'pick apart' the content. To me the same picture, on different size paper, are different viewing experiences. On a smaller print I need clearer separations of tonal breaks, just to be able to see them. The shorter dev time helps with that. In a bigger print I go for slightly more 'weight' just because I feel that it tones down the tonal breaks to a level where they are less distracting.

    Call it fine tuning of the viewing experience if you will, or perception of viewing the print.

    OTOH, I was taught to go up one grade of contrast with every size increse when enlarging. And the reasons given were the same as what Tom stated.

    Sorry, I agree with all 3 of you guys about increasing time due to contrast/presentation differences with larger sizes. For some reason I had assumed the issue being discussed was underdevelopment if time wasn't increased with larger prints.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.
