    Here is another shot from inside the USAF Museum and a blowup of a section that transverses specular highlights and full shadow. (120 Arista Edu Ultra 400)
    This neg was scanned @ 2400 dpi on a Epson 4990 flatbed with NO sharpening and NO density correction beyond what the scanner chooses as default.

    It may not be such a loss after all, but it wasn't the "bottle of diffusion" it appeared to be from the first tests.

    Shot with a Kiev 88 and 65mm f3.5 lens, exposure info not recorded, for those who might be interested...

    Ah, that explains it! But I really liked the effect, you should definitely cultivate that haze.

    Can you elaborate a bit on what the developer does to the film? Is it overall reduction of contrast, or only highlight taming?
    Using film since before it was hip.

    It it touted as a "soft" developer for extended detail in the shadows. The formula is still an MQ formula like D76, there is more metol than hydroquinone developing agent, so I am guessing that is what is supposed to bring up the shadows while the hq beats its head against the high density areas.

    Others more knowledgeable in chemistry can chime in at any time...
