very well done, I like October image, lovely image.
Thanks for the nice comments all.
The prints are a combination of Pt/Pd, Zia type, Azo, silver, and neg scans.
They are from 8x10 and 12x20 negatives.
Unfortunatly, they are not printed, this was only a prototype. I had it done at Costco on Fuji Crystal Archive. As we have a host of pro labs here, strangely enough, Costco has the best color balance and is 5x cheaper than any of the pro labs.
Each sheet 12x18 cost $2.99. So even with the evil of a d*$%tal step, they started out as film and ended up as C Prints.
I will look at publishing 2 calendars for 2006 or 2007. I would like to use them as marketing materials for self promotion.
Copies are available at cost, but that's $50. A little steep for a calendar.

I don't think I've ever seen a gravure in the real world, though. I'm dying to see one up close. Any of the folks in the upper half of Texas able to point me to where I can find some so I can compare them to the better quality silver gelatin and Pt/Pn prints I've seen?

Let's see what I've got in the magic trash can for Mateo!
