New Prints in Platinum/Palladium

This Autumn I've been working on a set of pictures at nearby Steep Rock Preserve. The subject is the forest and the Shepaug River that runs through it, using the special conditions and light as the leaves brighten and thin out. The forest can take on a glow in the soft light before or after the rain and I'm trying to capture that. It's also an experiment in working with digital capture to produce a set of pictures intended exclusively for platinum/palladium printing. This morning I made the first two test prints, 11-inches wide. They indicate that file prep has gone well but I'll wait until they are completely dry to evaluate and continue printing. Here are the first two, working their way through the clearing baths:
