    I've not had any quality time in the darkroom for months!! Spent a lot of this summer with my entire downstairs ripped up as we installed hardwood floors, and my darkroom was more of a storage facility. :lol:

    But it's cleaned up now and I got a chance to try some more liths. Wasted a bunch of time trying to get good results on a Kentmere paper - which ultimately failed. :banghead: More experimenting is in order there, since it did work at the workshop I attended last year. Frustrating!

    A few that worked:

    An HIE negative from a surprise trip to South Beach earlier this year. This plant was on our hotel room's balcony. Fotospeed Lith paper.

    This is one that I'll probably re-visit, in an effort to get more exposure in the highlights. I used Grade 2 Slavich paper, which gives very contrasty results in lith developer. I let the blacks in this one develop fully, and it ended up looking like I'd used lith film. Also from an HIE negative. A South Beach art deco building:

    Another HIE negative using the Slavich paper. This one I pulled well before the blacks fully developed, for a more charcoal etching kind of feel. Reminds me of a bromoil, too!

    A South Beach parking deck:

    Thanks for looking!

    Why, thank you, Max! :hug::

    Ann: the floor issue and related dust/clutter/my-house-is-a-hellhole factor DOES end....eventually. Just be smart and keep your enlarger covered at ALL times during the dust storm....not like SOME people I could name, who decided to sand down a wall in a nearby room while leaving the cover off and the darkroom door open. :blushing:

    Would enjoy seeing these for real, esp. the art deco building photograph.
    Looks nice.
