    Congrats Gustavo. It's a start, but you've got a lot of issues there... not sure where to begin. Are these on glass or aluminum? Looks like you've got a lot of ridges in your pours, or maybe uneven development. Also a lot of "oysters" that lead me to believe your darkslide is coming in contact with the plate. Not sure where the black spots are coming from. Did you take a workshop? That is a good way to go if not. It will help you avoid a lot of these issues and save you time, $ and a lot of headaches.

    I'm with Bill. Good try, but a miss/. Too many issues with these images. Best to wait until results are more successful before showing to public.

    Oh, please...

    Best to wait until results are more successful before showing to public? What is the concept behind this thought? Why would anybody make such a statement?
