Simple and beautiful. Made perfect by the beam of light on the tree.

These are really lovely, Tom. Can you share with us a little about which developer(s) you are using? Maybe you stated something earlier but I missed it. Thanks!

Hi,
Thanks.
I use Ferric Oxalate/Silver Nitrate as a developer.
I pretty much follow the procedure outlined in Sandy King's Kallitype article.

I've enjoyed the results I get and haven't found the need to experiment with other developers.
Sometimes I'll try other toners but really like the combination of platinum/palladium 50/50.
Thanks again,
Tom

Lovely light, composition and printing. (I bet the original is fantastic.)

Thanks Chris.
The actual print is much softer and more subtle than what you see on the monitor.
I just can't seem to scan the kallitypes well enough to convey how they really look.
