Sublime print Alex, quite luminous.


Did you do anything to increase the contrast between the petals and the leaves?

A lovely print Alex and the 'Chamois' (Foma?) paper really adds to the overall look. I do myself, I think, have some sheets of this paper still, but it really does need the right picture to print on it and this is one of them! Smile


Clicking to full size, I love that there is just slight tone in the flowers petals and slight grain throughout.


Deffo one for framing and putting on the wall and who ever got this print in the print exchange should think of doing similar! Smile

Thank you both, Martin and Terry. I didnít use any filter on the camera lens, Martin. The effect must be the lighting, which was a combination of daylight and the room lights where I was working. The backdrop is my favourite black velvet. I think the Pyrocat developer has helped bring out all the tones. It was a straight print at grade 2.5 on the colour head of my Leitz V35.

This is a truly lovely photograph of a difficult subject, I have tried over the years to photograph sunflowers but never got one as good as this, lovely

Thanks, Richard. They make great subjects, and tend to last long enough to make it possible to photograph them over several days.

I recognised that creamy texture of the Foma as soon as I saw the thumbprint image Smile


Lovely light to match the subject- you can almost feel the texture of the bracts (ok, I had to look the name up, but you can!).

Thanks, Bob. That's a new one on me, but I will remember it for future use 😁 It's very sad that Foma have stopped producing this paper.
Alex.
