Ha, yes indeed Bob. I do the same with Rodinal. Expose for highlights (underexpose) and cook in Rodinal 1:25. Printing those negs is a blast of fun (no joke). Sensitometry in these cases? Way out the window...but the prints..great! What I meant with my comment, is that the developer (and the way it is used) is simply at the service of the final print and the look one wants to achieve in a print. Duplicating that recipe and scan the negs, or going into the darkroom without a clear understanding of how to work contrast, will not lead to those type of prints.
