    You can barely see the image. I don't think they will print
    but I'll try when they dry.
    The film I've had good results with is Acros, 16 minutes.
    IIRC, 3 inversions each 2 minutes. One item I overlooked
    is the temperature; 23C. That much more would make
    a difference. Of course films vary in the amount of
    time needed.

    Although possibly not printable that roll should supply
    some information concerning the contrast problem you've
    been wrestling with. How do the denser areas in the
    negative compare with previous results? Are the
    shadow areas showing any detail and how do
    they compare?

    Seeing the negatives to be marginabley printable you
    know what direction to go in if you decide to pursue
    the method with very dilute D-23. Times are long
    but that is usual when very dilute developers are
    used. Compensation is what you are after and
    very dilute is one way of getting there.

    As you know upping the temperature will result in
    greater density, all things being equal. Perhaps
    some little increase in agitation at 2 minute
    intervals. Of course there is always
    protracted development. Dan

    Did you use fresh stock D23 or did you dilute used and replenished D23 stock. If the latter, that's a no-no. PE, I am sure, can tell us why.

    I mixed up fresh D23 in separate bottle for one-shot use.
    f/22 and be there.
