Depends on what kind of shadow details you want. Pushing Tx or HP5 gives that old school look, pulling (not really pulling as Tmax 3200 can be rated from 400 to 1600,3200 is considered a push) Tmax 3200 to 800 will provide much better shadow detail. If you push meter for the highlights and let the shadows fall where they may. I like Tmax 3200 rated at 1600 and developed in DDX. I also shoot Forma 400 at 800 and push in HC 110 or Studional (sp?).
