    Neal, I am not that precise. I use one dry down factor regardless of tonality. Frankly I don't see that much of a visual difference from high to low key. I find that the dry down factor works consistently. I have a Zone VI cold light stabilizer with a dry down meter. I go through the process of making the best print that I can with the dry down meter at zero. Once, I've completed and recorded all adjustements (i.e. burning dodging etc.), I dial in 8% of dry down and make the final print(s). That's it. If I were you, I'd establish my basic dry down factor and start using it. Then, I would fine tune it to fit your application.
    Often wrong, but never in doubt!

    Now, if you're compensating in each step of the print process to adjust for dry down, suppose you had an 8 second "dodge" of an area and a 10% dry down factor, you would INCREASE the dodging time by 10% wouldn't you? Not decrease it.

    These are the problems in life that befuddle me.
