    Barry,
    Thanks for comments and I'm pleased you like the print. Sorry for the late reply to your
    question but did not get back from Greece until late on Friday.
    Yes Presycysol EF IMO is the best commercially available developer I can buy, I use partial stand technique between 9.5 & 11.5
    minuets depending the taking light contrast measured with a hand held meter. I also use PMK, Pyrocat HD & even Rodinal for some films with
    excellent results but always keep some Presycysol EF handy.
    It is not just the developer that gives the results I want, its the combination of lots of things, like using high quality taking and enlarging
    lenses used at their optimum aperture, precise metering, but above all knowing your tools and film.
    As you can see I have turned into a bit of a negative obsessive, my aim is to make negatives that print highlight & shadow detail
    without using contrast filters when enlarging.

    Cheers JON.
    I prefer it in the dark.

    Thanks for the info Jon. I bought some Prescysol EF to try and developed my first film in it at the weekend. Unfortunately the film had been used in misty, frosty conditions where contrast was minimal and the Delta 400 developed in Prescysol EF created extremely low contrast negatives when developed for 10.5 minutes. Should I have developed for longer or would this have made little difference with this developer? I've posted a lith print made of one of the frames to the gallery so you can take a look!

    Barry,
    I'm not a fan of Delta, try HP5+ it's great with Prescysol EF.
