Received this morning, Klaus. A very nice print, forest scene, taken on Delta 100, split-grade printed on Foma 131 and Selenium toned.

This has come at a very opportune time for me, as I am working with Foma 131 quite a bit at the moment. It tones very well.

So, the foggy day you snapped this up in the forest was perfect for giving a lot of depth to the print. There is almost an IR look to the forest floor and the whole thing has a real depth, almost 3D look to it. Expertly printed - you did say there was a lot of local dodging and burning to even things out but I really couldn't tell from the print, it all looks very natural.

Many thanks,
Michael

Glad it finally arrived, Michael - that took a long time, especially since I sent it priority..

Anyway, I'm glad you like it! Fomatone 131 tones really well especially in sulpur toners and gold. surreal. Well, at least the batches I've got, which are prior to the latest reformulation - which I haven't tried. This print was only toned lightly, though. It doesn't age well though, it's already a rather soft paper which only goes up to a true grade 4-ish, now I can get maybe the equivalent of a grade 3,5 on Ilford warmtone. Not a problem if your neg isn't too thin.

Yes, quite a bit of dodging and burning - mostly dodging some trees. Took a few tries to figure it out. I hope I won't forget to put up a scan this weekend!
