    Free expression is fine except when it belittles anyone who has less social 'power' - then it is less about humurous critique than reinforcement of an already-existing unfairness! Jokes are for making life fun, but life's too short to not be respectful of everybody! Beyond anything, it really makes the world nicer.

    What do you guys think?
    ...back to the OP's question, I went through much the same process before I built my "last" darkroom, questioning the onslaught of new technologies of printing. At the time I may have, erroneously as it turns out, thought that it would all be so much easier. I finally concluded, not based on economics, that I had to stick with my strong suit, producing unique, archival-ly stable, hand made prints by classical means. The fact that my costs haven't changed since I built it, and are pretty much based only on consumables, may occasionally result in a slight internal smirk of satisfaction, but the real bonus comes from knowing, as you have said, that I can produce a fine print directly, and literally, by my own hand, with little or no technological intervention.

    I can't tell you how pleased this makes me. I hope to be making my first prints this weekend so it is good to hear others are having good success.

    So, I take it your answer is "yes"?

    Lovely job! Do you need a special enlarger/filters to print color or is it a matter of paper + chemistry? I was given an enlarger by someone who was no longer using it and my plan is to attempt my first B/W printing this weekend...no excuses now...I have the chemistry, a bucket to mix it in and containers to store it in, paper, etc!

    Finally, thread is back on track.

    You need a color enlarging head with the ability to manipulate cyan, magenta, and yellow.

    Or...alternatively, you need color filter for bellow the lens.

    All in all, you'll need to change your color balance some way to get it right.

    Good luck with the BW. (You can use a color head for BW too.)
