Thanks everyone for your prints and especially Andy for putting this all together! My comments:
Tomalophicon - This makes me want to go for a swim. Lucky I live close to the beach!
SMBooth - Printing a misty scene can be pretty tricky and you've done well - I'm struggling with printing a scene with mist coming off a waterfall at the moment. One thing you might like to consider is burning in the the top of the print a little to bring down the highlights so your eyes are held within the frame.
munz6869 - I can almost feel the Spirit of Tasmania lurching. Nice capture!
BarrieB. - Nice scene! Is there any information on the neg in the sky that you could bring in? Might be tricky with the other highlights in the image though...
Nige - A famous scene indeed! You might like to try a higher filter grade so that the additional contrast brings out more separation between the mountains at different distances, and possibly a little extra exposure.
Hoffy - I'm not familiar with RA4 printing. The scene reminds me of the family holidays I went on as a kid!
Oxleyroad - Nice scene! I was interested to read you make your own brew and substituted NaOH for KOH. I like the pseudo-lith look you've got and tried this a few weeks back by adding NaOH to Ilford PQ but wasn't able to get the effect you've achieved. How much NaOH were you using per litre? I might not have added enough.
Andrew K - 3D. 'nuf said! Thanks!
SteveR - Great to have a fellow FB user! My print wasn't too dense like others have noted but was a well controlled and balanced print. Very nice! A shame your other prints didn't work out, a light bleach would have really allowed the trees to pop. What dilution do you use? Just wondering, did you try to split filter to control your whites? Regarding the dumped prints, any chance you didn't re-fix after bleaching?
Enrico Scotece - Oriental! I really like how you've controlled your process from taking the photo in bright sunlight right through to producing such a balanced print. Very nice! I'd be interested to see this printed using Andy's brew to get some rusty tones in the metal.
