I like this a lot too; but the forum or scanning software has enlarged it and impaired its definition.

Michael -
There's a little bit of inherent "graininess" in the process. A bigger scan/picture can be found on flickr

But it does look better if you're not print-sniffing it, yes :D


Thanks for your comments, Richard and Andrea Smile

Heather - No, it was a general point I was making. Most of my own cyanotypes are made from 5x4 or inkjet printed negatives; but the few I have made experimentally from 120 and 127 all look far better as originals or same-size scans than as enlargements. I don't really agree with you about "graininess": it seems to me that paper texture is the main determinant of image, as long as you are using a good negative.


None of that detracts from your own blueprint, which I should love to see same-size online.

This is a super cyanotype. I only wish my efforts were as good! It gives me the inspiration to keep working at this process.

Too dark? Not a bit of it; just right I think.
