Well, I think I just solved part of the problem concerning the deeper black problem. I had the contact print just out of the wash, hanging to dry and a thought popped into my little pea brain. An 8 minute dip in selenium toner 1:9 might just help. Well, it sure does look much better with a slight brown/reddish tone and a visibly deeper black. I'll keep playing 'til I get it right! JohnW
