I have the opinion that printing a negative is not making a painting. You only have to print the negative as perfect as possible.

If you feel the need for burning and dodging in split grade printing, do it only during the exposure with the 00-filter. The exposure with the 5-filter is much to short for that. The exposure with the 5-filter is only a flash afterwards that takes care of the darkest parts of the picture.

I almost never use burning and dodging.

Erik.
