One last (?) print made from the roll of HP5+ that I've made prints from, for the last few rounds, which is a good amount for me from one film. Even better, was that it was developed in Eco E76 ascorbic acid home mixed developer and then stand developed for 30 minutes. This in turn produced some very easy to print negatives, which is especially good as P+S cameras can give negatives with varying densities, but stand developing the film really helped.


The darkroom at the end of the garden has been too cold of late to get in there comfortably, so my print was made right at the end of the month of January 2023.


Like the other few prints made, it was taken on a new 'Holga' 35mm camera (in a lovely bright yellow colour at that!)


I sent to Alex two small prints, with the first one on Kentmere RC glossy, which is a straight representation of the picture taken.


The second print was another(!) experiment, with FB Foma paper, which lith develops really well in Easylith. But I wanted to try something different, so I mixed up some Ansco 70 developer, which is listed as a possible lith developer, but I'm sorry to say, it's NOT!!


But, what it is, is a high contrast developer that knocks out some of the mid-tones to give a slightly different looking image to the norm. I won't be using it a lot but it's another developer to put into the memory bank for the right image.

Lovely composition Terry, the bandstand in a "viewport" between the trees works really well for me.
Adding some clouds finalizes the photo as a whole.
Being a lith fan myself, I find myself in doubt over which version I like most.
I think for this one I'd go with the traditional because I do like the little extra detail in it, but it could be different with the prints in hand.
Either way, both prints work really well!

I could not agree more, both versions are excellent. Sebastiaan's and Alex' reasoning for their slightly preferred version is just sound. Just a matter of taste. Very nicely framed subject and contrast.

Thanks for the comments guys. Smile


Looking at them in the hand together, I go between them at different times, as both of them are quite different to each other.
