Hi, I've recently come back to B&W darkroom work after several years shooting exclusively colour transparencies. I've decided to standardise on HP5+ developed in DD-X for now. My problem is that I've noticed significant "blooming" of overexposed highlights into surrounding areas, including the film rebate. I've attached a sample scan of a small section of a 6x6cm negative showing this (shot against a bright sky, exposed for the shadows). I've only shot a few rolls so far, but it seems to be occurring with different lenses and cameras, so I suspect a film/development problem. I'm developing in DD-X 1+4 for 7.5 mins in a Jobo CPE2+ processor at 20C. I'm guessing this is some kind of halation effect. Am I doing anything wrong? ... or is there any way of avoiding this? I don't recall seeing this effect before, but I'm probably more fussy now than I was when I used to do B&W 10 years ago! Thanks in advance for any tips, Ed.
