Due to the thin neg, there really isn't any seperation of tones. Thanks in advance.
If you have selenium toner, you might try intensifying the negative with selenium toner mixed 1-3 with water. The selenium will be proportional to silver intensity on the negative (hightlights will tone while shadows will be less). If you have any density at all then selenium will add density and contrast to your negative.
