    Pretty impressive Ken. Put that Nikkor M to work. Very few of your landscapes seem to have a paper white in them which makes them ideal for carbon.

    I confess to deriving a certain pleasure in being able to leave this print out in the sun.
    Excellent Ken, this photo has the potential for all kinds of relief. For one of your first prints it is impressive.

    Thank you. That one was made with a 400mm Fujinon T on 4x5, and the print was made with a digital negative.

    Most importantly, I had some big-time help making the print.

    Ken, congrats on your results! For anyone who is interested in hand-made prints, but still interested in the sharpness and feel of silver gelatin, carbon is hard to beat!

    Thomas -- cyanotypes will darken after drying due to the oxidation of the iron compound. One can hurry up the darkening by a short bath in dilute Hydrogen peroxide, but the Hydrogen peroxide will not make the print any darker than it eventually will get. A bath of dilute Ammonium (or Potassium) dichromate will significantly boost the intensity of the print, but it is a rather nasty chemical to dispose of properly.

    Thanks Vaughn.

    I've read about hydrogen peroxide initially darkening the print to its final value but I have never tried it. I have been using Dick Sullivan's formula as set out in the James book (substituting potassium dichromate for ammonium dichromate but instead using the actual weight for substitution instead of the more correct molar weight) and have not noticed a significant darkening upon drying. Upon examining the dry print on two successive mornings after printing my immediate reaction was the the print quality had "improved" which I attributed to a slight and very subtle darkening which may, perhaps, be illusionary on my part. But it did appear "better" to my eye.
