    I like XTOL but also recognize, "quality" doesn't always mean finest grain and whatever the characteristics a particular developer provides. It may be more appropriate to remove the word "quality" and list the characteristics.

    Kodak recommends NOT using development time shorter than 5 minutes. You mentioned the danger of shorter dev time without defining what "short" actually means. It may be beneficial to site 5 minutes (the figure that appears on every Kodak tech notes) in your document.
    It's funny you pointed out the "soup" reference, and I actually though that when I wrote it. You're totally right about that and I'll change it to "develop."

    Good point about "quality." What one person considers an admirable trait might not apply to someone else.

    Also a good point about development times. I did start to get into controlling development times without really explaining why you would do that.

    I sincerely appreciate the feedback, thank you! I'll make some modifications to the article reflecting your suggestions.

    Syrup - "a thick, viscous fluid"

    In American English (I don't know about British English), a word syrup refers to any thick fluid. The stuff we pour on ice cream, stuff we mix to make drinks, and of course medicine, are all called syrup.
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?

    Yes, i know what it is from the translation to arabic, in all cases i know what is the meaning of any word when used in phrases/sentences, if the word used alone then GOD knows what it is meaning.

    You might have developed a medical condition.
