His eyes are piercing! But some blacks are a bit too dark.

That's the price emulating emulsions with 9 ƒ DR!

I would note not the blacks but the pasty lower mid-tones.

Forgive my ignorance, but what is emulating emulsions with 9 f DR?

The mid tones needs to be worked well here.

These terms apply to film: an acetate with a light sensitive
B&W émulsion on one side that typically had 9 stops of DR.

I believe Nikon Shooter is referencing the Dynamic Range of most any B&W print shot with Tri-X film.  Most modern digital cameras have around 10-12 stops of DR. DR is measured by measuring the difference between the whitest-white with detail and the blackest-black with detail. Most people new to film printing (wet darkroom) started out printing muddy, low contrast photos. (Similar to your images, but with a lot of dust on them.)  It takes a lot of darkroom time to consistency capture and print photos with good contrast. 

Here's a galley of B&W Tri-X Stuff  from the late 60's and 70's.

There are photographs everywhere. It is the call of photographers to see and capture those images.

Yeah! I get this. But how can we add more contrast to these photos? Like, can we still adjust this using PP?

Given that the racial type has special skin colour and tones,
and was captured in the shade, one should explore the ori-
ginal RAW file to see how it could be improved.

Yes, it may be a simple matter of PP but the skin tones could
hide a trap for direct conversion; in which case tweaking one
or more of the six colour channels must come before any at-
tempt playing with contrast or else.

Yes and quite easily in PP or equal. (See Nikon Shooter's response above.)

Right. I see it. Nice advice, Maybe this is due to color noise correction. What do you think?

I think it starts with exposure, as the images appears to be underexposed. Even the whites of the eyes are not white. We don’t know how the B&W conversion was performed.

Yeah! I noticed that midtones are a bit lacking. The Whites are a bit too shiny.
