    But does it look better that way round?

    Flip it over and print again> however if there is complex shading and dodging that is a different matter.

    Yes, it does matter. Amazingly, some image flipped around gives quite a different impression. Reprinting now....

    It did matter quite a bit more today because I'm short on paper supplies.

    There's quite a bit of dodging and burning but they aren't all that complex. The only difficult part is.... the motion now has to be reversed. You know, once you get going, they become automatic? That now will have to be the other way around...

    swish, swish, shake, shake, swish.....

    * Just because your eyes are closed, doesn't mean the lights in the darkroom are off. *

    Once in awhile I make a negative that just needs to be printed inside out. I am a firm believer that if you keep a light touch and give the negative room to breathe it will reveal how it wants to be printed.

    I have a shot that's now titled "If I only had a Rose" as a tip of the hat to the song "If I Only Had a Brain." The first time I printed it, I flipped it. Then, once I'd realized it and tried to redo it, I eventually discovered that the contrast filter I'd written down was not entirely accurate as I'd had two filters in the drawer for that flipped print. I don't want to think about how many pieces of paper got wasted. And to top it off, it's originally a color neg and I decided it looks much better in color.
    This did lead to my always leaving the filter drawer open when I'm done to signify I've checked that it's empty - no more double filters.
