Thank you! Now to find an appropriate image...

The reason I don't want to contact print (my 4x5" negatives) is that I feel it doesn't give me enough control in the burning/dodging stage. I have negatives that don't need it, but none that can't be improved by a little burning. The situation might be different if I used 8x10" or even larger, but I still stop at 5x7". Prints from 5x7" could actually be made with a little border, as my negative holder is for 13x18cm...

No, I'll stop that discussion right now: Some prefer contact printing, some prefer a little space between the negative and the paper. Some will even make "enlaged" prints at 1:1 to make the burn&dodge easier
