no 85, reciprocity failure?

I'm working today with some 5293 shot of exterior locations and
exposed without an 85 filter.  I think the DP considered that he
needed the extra 2/3 of a stop or so.

I can rebalance to correct for the lack of filter fairly easily, but
I'm noticing that if the film is slightly overexposed, it becomes more
difficult to balance.  In fact I think it exhibits a reciprocity
failure, in that the lowlights bias in a direction different from the
highlights --unpredictably.  I'm rediscovering my reasoning for asking
DP's to shoot with the filtration recommended for the stock and light.
