It may have something to do with thinner/weaker coatings are faster but also
less deep or rich and that the higher humidity, which also causes an
increase in print speed , is giving the appearance of a well exposed
print. But since the coating was thin and fast, you can see the paper
fiber, The milkyness, through the black?
