Thank you for the kind words, Carl and Monty. The gold was actually added to the sensitizer, not toned afterward, an error on my part, if I did not make it clear on the description. I find gold warms the print colour, especially with this particular developer.

I also have learned something in the process, and I am actually reevaluating the development regimen. This particular negative was developed in Pyrocat HD for silver printing, but I was pleasantly surprised by the result, printing in palladium. I may not need to routinely develop to the higher contrast, with the 10x8, as I do normally now. Some testing is required, now.
