Reduction in development will always lead to a compression of highlight values. Proportional exposure will maintain highlight tonal separation. I have a couple of images posted in the technical gallery that show the results obtainable with this process. This will work in situations where one would have SBRs of 11 or N-4.
The only problem I see with this is that you are the only one who knows what you are talking about. I have been waiting for this article since you first posted this newfangled proportional exposure method and have yet to know what the heck it is.....so get off your butt and publish it already!!!
