    I posted this image about 3 weeks ago, but have continued to play with it. I think that's why I make several prints at a time....they're like toys. :lol:

    I wanted to experiment with having additional color shifts, so I tried the trickier duo toning technique of first toning in sepia, followed by the blue. The object is to get the sepia in the mid-tones and lighter, while following with the bue toning bath to hit only the darkest, shadowy tones. A bit of a cyan cast is expected since I used a warm toned paper. I like this outcome, though I think I gave a mite too much time in the blue. :razz: But I did achieve a fairly decent color split after drydown.

    Just playing. Thanks for looking!

    I like it alot! I can't wait till I move and have a nice basement for a darkroom. We don't get into this toning stuff at the university I'm at. Looks highly addictive! Great print you have here.
