    Well, its hard to say without seeing some of your results and just what you're not liking. But you should get good results with about any developer if you're doing every thing properly. But things like high dynamic range and some other subtle attributes may be developer dependent.

    So perhaps its the scanning and processing it may be the part that is giving you trouble? I scan in 16-bit BW in the ProPhoto RGB color space for maximum editing and I scan to grab all the density the scanner will get. It doesn't look pretty at this stage. Mostly flat and low contrast. But then I edit it in Lightroom to adjust the contrast curve, toning and other things.

    So post a shot in the BW thread that you think is typical of what you're getting and not what you don't like. I'll take a look at it and me and others seeing maybe can offer some suggestions.

    But don't give up trying!

    Thanks! I don't think it's in the developing technique, since I have mine developed in a cheap lab which tends to scratch the negatives at times, and destroys others on occasion. So I would think it's on the postprocessing flow. I have my negatives scanned using my K5 and a voigt 90/3.5 lens with closeup lens. It gives me a clean 300ppi at 9x13" digital file. From there, I shoot in RAW and have a prearranged set of settings in CS3 which I have come up with through trial and error. Then, I correct my settings based on how I prefer my shots to come out. I hope this helps.
