You won't get anything approaching a "rant" from me. I have a few rolls of Agfapan 400 overexposed by two stops (... So I forgot I wasn't using APX100) and I'm printing them with *long* enlarger exposure times ... both for the fact that I like them like that (see Ansel Adam's "Fortunate Accidents" theory) and that reducing them is invariably a risky business ... I look at reducing a negative as a "last resort".
