Never mind that: the image works and your brushwork complements it and frames it nicely.


The sheet is very slightly askew on the scan. If it's a scanning issue, no problem; but, if it's on the paper, you might want to re-trim the paper.

It is skewed on the paper but in the other version I did, I did managed to keep it straight. It's a little bit hard to ignore the brushstrokes sometimes and line up the negative, rather than try to get the negative to fit in the coated area.


I might keep this one and give away the nicer one, anyway.

Heather,


Fixed the ampersand issue here. It appears that the issue is something that occurs during the image upload. I'll look into it when I can. In the meantime I will edit any incorrect ampersand.


ps Very nice cyanotype, the skew does not worry me.

------------------------------
Cheers, Barry

Very nice and effective cyanotype, the subjects go together very well, and makes for a nice simple and uncluttered still life,Richard

A two second exposure: luckily, the snail does not show any movement blur...


Nice and simple does it very nicely.

Bob - That's because sadly the snail is no more Sad It's not visible at this angle but it has a small amount of damage to the top edge of the shell when I found it. It was on a fairly busy pavement and I figured it'd just get smushed eventually and was too pretty and interesting to leave for that fate.


Should probably attempt to dessicate it before my flat smells of dead snail (!).

I just love the simplicity. Your images are inspiring me to have a go at cyanotypes


Thanks

I like the period look. Is it perhaps a little too dark?
