As I look at the print the unexposed borders of the print would appear to be bronzed - they are not solid black or therabouts - yet there are real blacks in the print is this a result of the gold?

Cheers, Carl

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.
