Early morning mist in the woods.


Just for comparison, the one on the left has had a warm selenium bath, the one on the right is a straight print.

The one of the left = toned, comes up as slightly darker than the one on the right. Does that sound / look right your end?

Perhaps that's my poor scanning, but in the prints the untoned one is a little darker, certainly colder (as to be expected). The toned one appears slightly lighter, with more contrast - although the difference isn't that great.

The left toned image has slightly higher contrast on my screen but in all honesty I like them both.

Sometimes toned pictures need a bit of exaggeration when scanned because it is to subtle for the scanner. Nice moody pictures.

I have the same effect as Terry on my VDU. Other than that I can't see a difference on my screen. Based on the pics on my VDU I prefer the untoned, simply because there is more shadow detail and the extra darkness on the selenium toned pic is just lack of detail without any extra moodiness. That's the problem with scanners, I guess.

Yes I think the untoned has the edge on this occasion, due to the nature of the scene. I guess this is an example of why we all like to hold and look at real prints.
