CPorter indicated under these conditions he might give up to 2/3 stop less exposure (I assume this to mean 2/3 stop less exposure than he would otherwise give based on his meter readings and planned development). Pre-exposure + (normal main exposure less 2/3 stop). I'm saying if anything this will result in reduced local contrast through more of the subject range vs Pre-exposure + normal main exposure).

I guess we'll just agree to disagree on this. I don't want to start pissing people off. The more people who participate in these threads the better.
