Thanks for the tip. I was thinking about giving split grade a shot for the muddy shadow detail. I am going to try to print the over exposed negative first. I think since there is an incredible amount of shadow detail in that negative, I should be able to print it ok if I use a hard filter to increase the over all contrast of the print.

This should fix that problem because I do not want to be doing split grade printing in the future unless I have to. I guess the old saying is true -- expose for the shadows and develop for the highlights.
Thanks for the help guys,
