The Printing Continues
Somewhere near a third of the orders from the TOP Platinum Print Offer have shipped. Early orders ran so heavily to The Pike that I've gotten behind on that picture and have to do several Pike-only sessions so we can get back to shipping the orders in sequence.
If you take a close look at this shot you can see the clearing process, where the iron image is removed to leave only platinum-palladium in the paper. The foreground print has just entered the first clearing bath after development and first water wash, the middle print is partway through the second clearing, and the far print is in the wash phase, completely cleared and just rinsing the clearing agents out of the paper fiber.
