    Hmmm, sounds like fogging more than continuing development, either stale paper or old safelights - Prints should be developed fully so a true black is a true black, but graded and exposed so highlights retain a delicate tonail range

    No it's not fogging, but there is a difference between dveloping fully tomcompletion and developing to achieve the maximum black. Once you develop past that maximum black point you're altering the printing curve.

    ... exactly. An adjustment in developing time is a great way to fine tune print exposure too. Thirty seconds longer in the developer can add a bit of extra effective exposure and changes the curve somewhat. Sometimes just what the doctor ordered.
