    My normal developer lately has been Ilford PQ Universal developer and I might start with that. But I might give HC-110 another shot -- I think I have heard that it is known as a clean working developer, which I think means it would give less base fog than some others. I use to bake the Tri-X in it (25 minutes in Dil. B, constant agitation) to get high contrast, but with minimal base fog. But like you, I am not worried too much about base fog -- I have used out-dated film and have lived with base fog before.

    But with my carbon printing, I use negs with a high density range (higher than needed for pt/pd), and have used bleaching to reduce the shadows a little (clear in the smallest shadows where I don't need detail). On some negatives I followed the beaching with selenium toner to move the highlights the other way. I don't like to have to do such post treatment, but sometimes the image is worth it.

    Hope you don't mind the chatter, vedmak!

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.
