    I've found that going back into the soda after tea toning I get nice neutral greys. With heavy exposures and lots of time in the tea I have had jet black shadows but by then the paper is quite stained by the tea.
    Back to the original question add classic cars and bikes to the list of stuff that works in blue. I am especially fond of a cyanotype I made of details of a Haley engine.

    Who was it that said anyone who prints landscapes in Cyanotype is a vandal??

    Portraits of folks like Bernard Madoff. Actually, I have done portraits in Cyanotype, and they can have a certain charm. Don't expect the sitter to be thrilled, however.

    I've seen some impressive portraits, normally very tightly cropped, that look good.
    Nudes also look great with many alt processes. I think it helps abstract the image a little and take it further from 'kewl, a nekkid chick/guy' and more about form.

    I tacked one to the railing of the deck where it was exposed to weather for six weeks. It recieved sun from 11am to 6pm (when we have sun, this being Cleveland). No noticeable change - though I didn't keep a reference version. Seems they may last longer than RC prints...

    Iron gallate was known to the ancient Greeks, who used it as ink. Writings in 'iron ink' are still readable after thousands of years.

    Gallic acid's known mild reducing action made it a candidate for a developer at the beginning of silver-halide photography.

    I guess the winner for image permanence would be cyanotype on papyrus or scraped hide.

    I've made a series of cyanotypes from travel shots from Albania, and I didn't find the color annoying for any scene, really. What I don't like about the basic cyanotype process is the low d-max, so I spent some time trying different methods until I got one that gave a crisp, contrasty look.
