    How big of enlargements are you making?

    We'd like to know what size of prints people are making on a regular basis.
    Wet darkroom prints only; any process.
    You decide what "regular basis" means.
    We realize that it's a simple question with complicated answers!
    If we omitted your favorite, please just pick the closest size. Comments welcome.

    Thanks,

    Tim

    I think you ought to add 20x30 and 30x40, at least.

    No enlargements -- contact prints up to 11x14.

    Re: How big of enlargements are you making?

    As a lover of Pano's usually the widest my Saunders Easel can go, by whatever the format was vertically, but as of last week when I tucked into my 50" roll, it is on average 3 - 4ft by whatever the format ends up being vertically. Im sure the novel will wear off, but far out I am loving the extra detail and visual impact printing large negs on 'bigger than small' print sizes. Formats are 6x12, 6x17, Roundshot (so multiply by degrees kind of thing), 4x10"
    But if I'm shooting 4:3 then probably 11x14 or 16x20 routinely. Oh and also new to me is the Ilford MGFB1K emulsion, and I'm not sure if I am imagining things, but I am almost certain that today I witnessed the biggest change to date in Dmax with warmish 1:9 selenium for 2.5min using this paper. Beautiful image, but I think the gloss on the old MGIV is better.
