no real good examples that I've had.
the reason is the low dynamic range that is represented on the paper is too small.
I like the high contrast,but you don't get to display a whole lot on the paper since a normal scene will have much more contrast range than you can hope to display on the paper--I've had 1/2 success with color paper reversal processed as black and white but the dmax is very low--you get PAN sensitivity, faster speed, but the darkest "black" is dull grey--I have not yet done the next step of intensifying that paper to make the full black totally black--too much effort to try (just now).
however--from what I see- the direct positive harmon gives you similar speed and results without using dichromate--it looks like it can display more dynamic range than regular enlarging paper too--although it is still lacking in that department--this is why everybody must preflash to even further tame the contrast response. this would be what to experiment with and is what I intend to use when I build the very very large camera (projects...projects...) that I have planned....ilford seems to do good with that stuff and may improve it in the future (increased speed???? pan sensitivity????) hey...that would be nice.

Reason: forgetit--no decent examples
