    I have no way of posting a photo since I don't have a scanner, so I will just have to describe how my first attempt with my new times for TMX.

    I went out on Monday it was a very gray day or what I referred to as an N+2 day as I left the house. I photographed a scene with a SBR of 1:8 (a range from zone II to zone V, the highest value in the scene was V) and planned N+2 development with intensification of the negative using selenium toner. I reduced the exposure by an additional 1/3 stop (as indicated by the curve for N+2 dev) to maintain a net expansion of +2. I simply could not be more pleased with the result. So, I guess that is all I can say as I wish I could post the result and share it.

    As strange as my times for TMX may seem, it is apparent to me that, with N+2 anyway, something is working out.

    I don't have a scanner either - however, it has occurred to me that for web display, I should be able to go to the local drug store where they have a flat-bed scanner and scan my prints there.

    Hope you find a way to post, Chuck. I'd love to see your results. I wonder if I'm just making denser and higher contrast negatives than you as I only contact print my sheet films?

    Below are links to a couple print scans of N-1 negs I made recently. Haven't scanned any prints from my N or N+ negs yet but will post those as well.

    Tmax 100 in D76 1+1. My N- time was 9'30". The solid leaf areas were reading 9 and my bare table was reading 13. I placed 9 on Zone 5. I used my dichro head so split grade print these onto Ilford MGIV FB developed in Sprint QSPD.

    Shawn, IDK, but does contact printing require denser negatives than projection printing?

    The AZO I used to print on worked better with somewhat dense negatives of fairly high contrast. I've carried this over to my work with graded enlarging paper with great results. However, the images I linked are printed on multi grade and it seems I can print just about ANYTHING on that paper using the split grade technique. Sure would be nice to stand around a light table together and evaluate negatives and prints.... I guess all that is to say, IDK either!
