Thanks for your comments.

Exposure was EI=3, metered at the brightest part of the duck and placed at +1/3EV, 8 second exposure under indirect north-facing daylight + some halogen fill lighting from a work light placed across the room from the setup.

Yes, this was preflashed (7.5 watt, 120vac frosted white lamp through 5mm aperture at 30" above paper for 3.5 seconds).

Development was 5.5ml Ilford PQ concentrate in 75ml H2O at 68f for 3 minutes in Jobo rotary test print development drum (rotated by hand, I don't have a motorized base).
