Pyrocat HD developer test # 1

First test shot developed in Pyrocat HD staining developer. I wanted to shift most of my 4x5, 5x7 and 8x10 panchromatic film development over to Pyrocat HD in order to take advantage of its purported advantages in retaining more highlight detail in the negative, an area that I have found to be problematic on my scans and prints.  From the negatives in this first batch, so far I am very happy with the results though I will have to shoot on a nice bright day to truly judge if it's making a real difference in the highlights.
