    oh, give me a break guys...they don't realy mean it looks like silver so, gee whiz, why did I even bother with a platinum...good grief..I should have printed it on azo...duh....

    Lot's of folks printing platinum wane over the ability to make blacks 'just like silver'.....and make claims of the such....

    I've seen several of M & P's new platinum prints in person...pretty neat on the thin paper. I can hardly imagine putting the thin paper through developers, clearing etc. and not ruining a few sheets in the process...so how do they look? Great. But to each his own...I think some prints are meant for plat, some for palad., some for silver...Yes, it's pretty neat seeing one printed that big. But would I buy one? Or you? Hey, it's art..to each his own.

    I have also seen other fantastic platinum prints, including Dick's and others...just saw his work at SCC last week. 90% were taken with a DIGITAL Hasselblad....btw.....and then digital negs were made....ony two prints were in camera negs.

    There are quite a few great plat. printers out there. I don't know anyone that has an 'exlcusive' on the process. But imo, if the image sucks, it doesn't matter what its printed on....

    Most folks printing platinum could give a rat's ass about making blacks just like silver. Those who do should consider a different medium.

    I presume you mean George Tice? If so, I wonder how much of the 15K is because it's Tice relative to the way they were printed...
