I have found that making a really great print takes time - don't despair. When I return from a trip and have a stack of negs to print, I prioritize them and they go in a bin awaiting time to print. Don't be in a rush. In 30+ years of darkrrom printing I always seem to have a backlog and therefore - something to look forward to. I have found when I try to work too fast, I compromise and never end up with a satisfying print. Good Luck.
