Yes Bruce,

That's the same way my 2 bath development as well.

I had read in The Print (A.A) that he also used a 2 bath development every once in awhile, but he used Selectol Soft FIRST, then Dektol. So I thought, heck, if Ansel does it that way, I' should atleast give it a try. All I got outof the excercise were some pretty muddy looking prints, and that was from negatives that I had previously printed with great suscess using the harder developer as the first bath.
