    Nice work Matt. Really gives a good idea of the versatility you can get with all the combinations. I especially like the carousel gum over image.

    Hey Lee,

    I got a few more still to go before it all said and done (maybe a month or so), but fore long I should be shooting quite a bit. Am looking forward to getting some as good as Matt's here.

    Way to go Matt. It looks like you are well on your way. These are very good for your first 'alone' attempts. The cool thing about gum is that you have never learned it all. And you really haven't asked that many questions!
    I just want to feel nostalgic like I used to.

    to be honest mike, I picked these three as my "first" ones for a few reasons,
    the graffitti abandoned building one because I wanted to experiment with trying to get the yellow tones in the highlights, chose the carousel print because I wanted to see what a "foggy" image looked like with the gum over, and chose the dead deer one because its a favorite negative of mine and wanted to experiment with browning the tones in the bones etc.

    I think I am leaning towards Keriks statement that a majority of pt/pd prints can/could be improved by the gum over layers. but who knows.... Ill let you know if 70 yrs when Im dead and cant print anymore

    thanks everyone for the kind words. I really appreciate it.

    thanks clay.

    WOW! They totally kick ass! Your regular platinum stuff is great, but these really kick it up a notch.

    Well on his way? I'd say hook line and sinker.

    Welcome to the rabbit hole my friend.

    Now you will spend time lamenting over which color combinations you like better, and researching pigments. It sure is a fun way to spend your weekends, though. Just keep away from the orange Koolaide.

    Scootermm, Wow! Those are very good photographs you've made. I like it the way you see things. I meant it. The tone also looks great on my monitor. Can't help getting sucked into it, but I keep hearing good things about Gum-Over Pt/Pd. Never seen a real gum pt/pd print before. Is there a good website discussing this process? Thanks.
