And indeed this are neg scans. The black point is placed as close as possible to where I normally have them on a proof-sheet print from the darkroom. (where you start seeing a hint of the clear film base). I could easily pick out more shadow detail from the scans, but I let the base-fog decide, to get a more realistic view of the whole proof-sheet.
It's always hard to judge scans, I know (that's why I mentioned that this was not a very explainable example, but an example none the less).
The negs are quite dense after HC-110 H for 20 minutes, so I'll probably go for around 17-18 minutes instead if I decide to push again.
