I'm using the Canson Plantine paper with the K7 Selenium in one 3880 and it is nice stuff.  Not a super bright white, more of a warm tone, but it does look nice.

I've tried multiple passes of the GO.  What it does is fill in the texture of the paper's surface.  One is often enough.  I've tried 3-4 passes of GO and it smooths it out too much in my opinion, even with lower levels of say 20,000 instead of the normal 30,000 in QTR.  Plus, it gets very expensive to use the stuff up so soon as you do use a lot of it in a single pass verses several other tanks of ink mixed for a single pass on one print.  I had to buy it in the larger bottles too since I wasted too much playing with it.  Nice stuff though.

sounds like the head has picked up a lot of ink someplace and dragging it onto the print.  Sometimes thick papers that curl excessively up on the sides (i.e. Breathing Color) lead to that sort of stuff.

Try cleaning that wiper blade and print head parking area with the two (what used to be white) sponge pads (Turn printer on and unplug it once the head moves off to the left side as you face it).  It could be all caked up with dried and wet ink.  Also, I had some heavy cloth paper and I dipped one end of it (other remains dry) into a large flat plate with some 99% alcohol, and then fed it through the printer with the paper feed button.  I took a bit off the print head and hopefully the rest was wiped and dried as a result.

I tried to park a wet paper with alcohol on it under the head but never was successful (Too tight a fit), so I just feed the through from the back and pray.

Like I said, just another data point. But, for better or worse, Matt is a well-known Lightroom instructor.
What did I tell you Bob, wrong data point and you're wrong. Stick to doing what you prefer doing, or tell those who do things differently what they want to hear.

Here's something George wrote that we all (well most of us) agree on:

The important thing (in the short run…) is that you can find your photos.
Anyway, back to digital photo libraries. Earlier I said that the folder organization you use doesn’t matter, as long as you can find what you’re looking for. And that truly is the heart of the matter.

ND grads - as others have said, depending on your camera you may not need it much.  Many modern cameas have such a high dynamic range (in raw) that often you don't need an ND grad to darken the sky - the camera often captures the whole range from sky to shadow, and you can apply a grad in post if needed.  That way you can play with the graduated filter in softare until it looks right.  ND grads can give an unnatural look to the sky unless adjusted near perfectly, which is much easier in post.  

Thank you! Everytime I say that, someone comes out breathing fire. So I try to say it as gently as possible. I am quite sure that, in most cases, the affinity for ND grads is a holdover from the film days.

I have a few images on my website about halfway down the landscape gallery if you care to look there. There is one of The Window which is a nice 4 hour adventure out and back, as I remember, passing beyond Spider Rock. Click on the image and there is a little description of getting there. Fall color is usually late October.

Deb Lem was my last guide but I no longer have her number.

Matt seems one of the more measured guys in the Kelby business, Bob, but their strengths have never been in DAM and I wouldn't consider it much of a data point. Someone like George Jardine is a more credible source - see this post for instance.

Total speculation.

Yeah, Matt and Kelby really are the first people you'd go to for DAM advice, colour management too.... /heavy irony

Like I said, just another data point. But, for better or worse, Matt is a well-known Lightroom instructor. That doesn't make him right or wrong, it just means he has heard and seen more than I have, at least.

You don't think he's drinking buddies with Peter Krogh? Smiley
