Another set of two pictures taken during a recent visit to one of my favourite local places, Priory Park, in Southend on Sea.
Taken on a MF Fuji GA645Zi camera, using HP5+, which was developed in home mixed ID11 / D76.
Both prints were then made using Art 300 paper - a lovely paper, which I keep for just the right subjects. It's well worth getting a small box to try, if you haven't already.
Developing was done in home mixed D72, in a Nova slot processor.

Hi Terry,
These I like very much, where my favourite is the one in landscape format. Just for the framing of lines and levels. Also the flowers in the foreground shine are more sublime, shining beautifully on Art 300.

Many thanks for the comments Frank. Smile


I go between the two, changing my mind quickly as to which one I like over the other.


In the hand, they very much work as a pair, but I like them one ABOVE the other, rather than SIDE BY SIDE as in the uploads.

Hi Terry,
I see you used the ART 300. I tried this paper several years ago and had a lot of staining issues. The paper seemed difficult to use and reminded me of the old Kentmere FB papers.Maybe my trays were dirty. It is a lovely paper. What kind of wash procedure do you use? I use the 5min then 10 min wash aid and then five min continuous agitation. You have to have short fix time for this I think and maybe I left it too long in the fix.
Love your results anyway! I will have another go!
Best wishes
Howard

Hi Howard, I'm unsure if I replied to you earlier elsewhere, by so I'll do a quick reply here.
Yes, Art 300 is a lovely paper to work with, it's only downside is that it floats to the surface in my Paterson cradle print washer, so I have to fiddle about with a weight, to keep all prints under the water.
I generally do what you do, being about a 10-minute pre-wash / soak, with occasional agitation, followed by at least 10 minutes in a sodium sulfite/ wash aid solution, followed by a long soak, with intermittent agitation and a few changes of water. Doing occasional tests on my FB prints have shown this procedure to be working. And I don't use stronger fixer solution, just the usual dilution of 1 to 9.
I don't get stains on the prints, but I do get the occasional darker fleck, usually more noticeable on the margins, but that's just the way the paper is made and I think that the adds to the print in my eyes.
I hope this is helpful to you.

I like the portrait-format the most of these two. The slightly higher perspective brings out a little more of the flowers and there is a little more context shown in this image.
But, the other one is very nice as well! I do like the sligthly darker background in that one, giving it a little more separation from the flowers.

Thanks for the comments Buzz. Smile


As said, I too go between the two prints, depending upon my mood.


They're not a bad scan, but as always, Art 300 paper (and these prints of course!) look much better in the hand. It's well worth buying a small box (I like the 5" x 7" paper format), if you've never tried it, as it's a lovely paper and with the right picture... Smile
