Thanks to Fred for a nice view to a Canadian National Park, where one can get lost in all the details ;)
Maybe you could try to make a salt print from this negative, to transfer all the dynamics to the paper.
Hope you all enjoy my prints,
I have recieved 2 beautiful cyanotypes from Martin. Lovely pinhole images, Martin!
I will definately not get my work in the mail by the end of the month. My husband's serious illness this fall but me way behind. I'm now almost caught up on the prints I had to make for local clients and hope soon to get to my alt supplies. I'll be late, but they will get done eventually.
I am hoping to get some printing done this weekend, since the weather is supposed to be relatively warm (so the heater inside the house isn't going), provided I don't spend the whole weekend sick (like I feel today). :(
Group one prints away! I don't know how long things take to get to Switzerland, Martin.
They are all liths, and seeing there is some ambivalence over what constitutes "alternative," I hope y'all are not disappointed.
All of my prints were made on paper that is long extinct and difficult to find. Some is absolutely impossible to find. I can't get any more alternative than that, folks!
Yes, Anke, I am glad you like it. I hope the post man did not try to bend it to fit through the mail-slot. I have tried the negative in argyrotype, and its looking much more promising.

My prints will go in the post on Monday. Hope all enjoy. I know I always do.
I received Anke's print in the mail yesterday. Thanks so much! :D
I finally at least pulled out the negatives I plan to print this time. :o I am hoping to get some test printing done maybe tonight (depends on what time I get home from voting and my Chinese ink painting class) and definitely try to make some headway on printing tomorrow night. :)
I received 2 very nice und unconventional prints from Rich today. Thank you very much!
Thank you, that you opened my eyes for a wider range of alternative processes.
I have been away and a little tied up of late. However, I would like to acknowledge two great prints.
The first is a gold toned palladium image from Fred. A great composition and huge range of tones. The gold toning has worked extremely well and really adds to the image.
The second is from Anke - one of the nicest cyanotypes I have seen and I have seen a few extremely good ones - especially from John Brewer. Again a great range of tones and the highlights have been held which is often the most difficult part. Very well presented too!
To you both many thanks indeed. My effort will be in the post for the weekend.
All the best, Carl
Hi group 3,
My prints are made and I hope to get them out in the mail early next week. :D
I managed to get them printed before the cold front came through and we have to turn on the heat in the house (there goes the humidity).
