I made this print yesterday for my Cyanotype Portfolio [as distinguished from the book.] The image is about 7 inches tall and printed on a piece of 140 lb, cp, 9×11 Canson Montval paper, as opposed to my book prints, which are on 90 lb Canson Montval paper. I know I have posted this image before. However, I wanted to show it again for several reasons. Firstly, I adjusted the colors on this one to resemble the original as closely as possible. When first scanned, these prints are always too blue. It is tempting to post them that way, but than again, I am growing very fond of this color cast. Secondly I wanted to again express my amazement as to how good I think these landscape photos work as Cyanotypes. Also I never thought that my Cyanotype prints would lend themselves to reproducing this kind of detailed image, but it seems that the dense vegetation in this one works particularly well. As in the ‘Too Dark’ image below, I overexposed this one a bit – on purpose this time.
