I've seen prints on Endura metallic paper, including one of Graeme's in the f32.net Travelling Exhibition, and while Graeme's work was certainly very proficient, I don't think this paper works for every kind of subject. Some things benefit from that particular sheen, though. I also don't see the resemblance to Ilfochrome.
Hey, check the POW thread again on photo.net--sure enough, one guy has futzed (can I say that here?) it up in PhotoShop and posted his version.
