    Selenium on the bottom and yellow-brown (2+4) sepia on the top. Money! Just don't let the selenium go too far.

    Nice split between warm brown highs and hard black on bottom. Selenium first, pull it at the first hint of density. Kinda time consuming, with the sulfite bath and wash before the bleach and sepia.

    Galerie is nice for this because it reacts more slowly in both the selenium and the bleach. Easier to control. Warm papers get outta hand pretty quick.

    Rich, I have not used bleach but I read you print deeper because the bleach cuts back the print. Is this the print technique to use?

    Sounds like a way to warm up Galerie and create open shadows. Bergger WT would lightly split in KRST.

    Trying Galerie with Ansco 120 - a Metol based developer - gave at least neutral to hint of warmth. Will be trying Moersch Separol Soft which in past has yielded warm tones on some other papers.

    People need to try Galerie. It's a classic traditional graded paper with a neutral, rich tonal range. Crisp whites and inky blacks with a long palette of gray tones in between. There is something to be said about simplicity and knowing your negative. When you have your developing down and sort negatives for paper contrast the prints print themselves. Will almost.

    I would think 120 would be soft and slightly warmer. Are you using 120 with a harder developer to get 1/2 step changes in contrast on Galerie?
