These appear to be missing dark dark dmax. I know what you mean about having to see them in person--scanners and digicams don't capture all of the meat. That's why they look so good--so hyper-real in person. I'd be interesting to check your process against others--same film, same exposure but different processes to see the differences. The thing is the person that comes up with the process has different techniques/equipment to develop--different water. different ambient temperatures, different reflexes--the differences in people, equipement and other things results basically a different process, even if the chemicals, times and temps are the same. So dupilcating anothers process is not reliable. it can result in "I tried it and it don't work. Followed the instructions to the letter, too." This seems to happen quite a bit.
