So what did I learn?
Well, Jim Shanesy sent me a negative and an azo print to compare to a pt/pd print made from the same negative.
I posted both prints so you all can get an idea of the differences. All in all, comparing an azo or silver print and a pt/pd print is an exercise in futility. Both have very different feel, coupled with the photographer's interpretation of the negative, it is useless to say what is better. Of course I am partial to the pt/pd print, but I imagine how many would like the feel of the azo print better.
