"Mission Spirit" ~ Gold Toned Kallitype

The first print was an untoned Kallitype using a digital negative with a short <curve> added. I didn't like the tonal arrangement of the first image so I've increased that <curve> range about 10% or so and reprinted the negative. I am much more pleased with the second version. The increased densities are to be seen in the middle tones, which opened up from the last print image.

I have increased the solution amount for both the silver and ferric oxalate, from 2ml/each to 2.25ml/ea. I may even increase it a bit more to 2.5ml/ea as that increases the depth and richness of the image, deepening the black especially, to reach dMax black. The print time from the first to the second print image was 2 minutes. Same developer; sodium acetate @ 75 degs F.
