I think this would benefit from a more careful, smaller coating to get rid of the edges on the lighter, top side/edge at least.

Remarkable. The movement of the tones, interrupted by the rain droplets, really suits the materials. For me the hard top edge is fine as it acts to set-up one's eye moving from top to bottom, just like the rain. Thanks for posting.

Very impressive. It really works with the cyanotypes blue tones.
I think that you are right about the smaller coating with the light blue merging with the white. Definitely worth a go.

The proofing sheet print without the border is quite abstract. The one here is more literal with the hard edges and dark border being evocative of a window pane. At least that is my reaction to the two. Nice either way.

I'm with Mark here: I like the way the border turns the image into a virtual pane of glass; using the medium of capture to effect the final image.

The absence of a border makes the image look almost three-dimensional, which I like.
