A lone sunflower that, as I recall, was part of a small vegetable plot outside a shed/container somewhere in deepest, darkest Kent (I think... possibly Essex...)


The cold-tone developer made no impact on the MGIV-FB (didn't really expect it to - but I am trying it on whatever papers I have laying around) so I dunked it in sepia with a short bleach. I also tried bleaching another print in the sepia's bleach and re-developing it in the B&J but still no detectable effect...

Wow! Great print there Bob - very graphic!


When I first looked at it, I thought that it was a lith print, as it has a certain look to it. I was quite surprised to see that it had 'only' been bleached and sepia toned.


I would have been very happy to receive this print, as it's 'right up my street', as they say. Smile


I was also going to ask what 'B&J' was, until I read your further details about your print. Very much a 'doh!' moment!

Stunning print!
It's all there; framing, sharpness, slightly blurred background and ofcourse excellent toning!

Thanks for the observations folks. I was in two minds about the toning at first but once I did it, I did like it as the brown echoes the rust on the weathered container/shed.


Sorry Terry: in my usual attempts to save time, I simply added to the general level of confusion in the world (as usual) 😉 ...

I have seen, and indeed made prints of sunflowers, but this by far the best I have seen, and beats my efforts by a country mile, well done
