Absolutely correct. TMax developer was created specifically for pushing. Though it has been adapted for other interesting effects -- extended development at up to 1:14 to control extreme contrast. And you don't even need to double up amounts to have the proper energy like other developers. For example, with highly dilute HC-110 or D-76, you would have to use a four reel tank full with two rolls of film to have the energy to develop those two rolls. Not so with TMax developer in a highly dilute state. It still has the energy to do four rolls in a four roll tank at 1:14. - -- Eric Welch St. Joseph, MO http://www.ponyexpress.net/~ewelch Prepositions are not words to end sentences with.
