Hi friends,   I'm reversal processing Tri-X Super8 film using Dokumol (paper developer) and Dichromate/sulphuric acid bleach.   My first attempts were good, but I mixed up a new batch of chemistry and now it seems that there is no shadow detail.  The highlight areas are good, but the shadows all fall to complete black.

 

I'm not sure what part of the process might be causing this.  Maybe if the bleach is too strong, would that have this effect?  I used a different source for the sulphuric acid, perhaps of a different concentration than previously.
