The box of paper was perhaps 4 months old and had approx 40 sheets left. The film was one I originally developed in December 2010 and it was in date then. I don't keep film, especially colour if it is time expired. The 1st small print I made of that image was on 8x10 paper I bought at the same time as the4 12x16 and that was normal filtration. (for Fuji) Just for record, my enlarger is a LPL6700 with colour head.)
