I have to say, two things on your printing, I'm very surprised by the tone of the paper, not nearly as cool toned as I would have expected from that paper, the face almost even looks a touch warm (probably in comparison to the rest of the picture). The second thing... AMAZINGLY STRAIGHT BORDERS!!!...
    I was attending a corporate function at Luna Park and took my Mamiya 7 and a light tripod along. I noticed the puddle mid-afternoon on the way in and thought there might be some possibilities as dusk approached with the eyes and teeth glowing in the reflection. I have seen several similar images over the years. One with more water in the puddle and a wider angle view and one just of the reflection which currently appears on Robert Billington's web site. Yes, also very familiar with the place having photographed it many times at various times in different ways,

    As for the print tone it was developed in a warm dilution of LPD and selenium toned which would have tamed some of the coolness. Somewhat shattered that the only feature which made it into capitals was the borders! Nothing more than a decent Saunders easel and the back of some cast off prints with ruled markings on them!

    Thanks for taking the time to comment on everyone's prints.

    I've just never been able to get decent borders from an easel, that's all! At the moment I use masks cut out of light-weight masonite. I only made them in panoramic for 8x10, 11x14 and 16x20, and thun bordered full sheet for 11x14 and 16x20, so any other sizes (including normal full 8x10) I print either full-bleed (as it were) or with lop-sided easel borders... It made my day in the last round when one or two others had borders bout as even as mine. You'll notice the texture of the cut masonite in the borders of my print. I kind of like it actually, but still find a good, straight and true border very impressive!

    I picked up a 11x14" 4-blade Saunders second hand a few years ago. One of my favourite darkroom tools. I was always staggered by the new price but can appreciate why now. Built like a tank and the multiple paper guide slots are genius.
