Just to clear things up I was not talking about that neg. I have another one that I printed, and a photo friend wanted to see more detail in the shadows. It was a very dark hall. I mean I could not see the outline of my camera. But, I understand what he means, I think. I walked down the hall with my meter and took an average from where I thought shadow detail would be most important. I guess I thought a really dark hallway should be made to look like a really dark hallway.

As for the neg you guys have (now I am feeling bad about sending it out) I honestly did not think the highlights were blown. I can still see the black bars that are covering the door window. Sorry. If you all want, I have other negs that are better. I can ship one out and to replace it.
