The emphasis is on fidelity to the film based source. You need to avoid digital enhancements and digital manipulations - the results reasonably achievable in a darkroom should be your target.

And it is always okay to take steps to minimize the additions and distortions that a digital approach can add.
But I have no clue what would approximate a print since I've never made one from and of my films... Ever...

So I'm not even sure how well exposed anything is, or even if it's printable (except my chromes which are mostly perfect as far as I can tell).

Anyway I'm just poking the bear at this point so I'll stop.
