SNIPPEDEnd snipOriginally Posted by Les McLean
I would opt for equal, as the print (any print) is dependent upon the development. "You can't print what ain't there". But you sure can make a slightly over/under developed negative look good...... maybe not the expressive print, but a print that perhaps hums rather than sings.
You really can't have one without the other. So I think they are of equal importance.
