Saw this storm approaching as we were leaving for home and had to pull over. Working on a color variant with slightly different framing but not happy with it, yet. Hopefully this last shows I've been learning something, but if you spot anything, please let me know. I did apply a 10% #85 warming filter, just for kicks. Esthetically, I am happy with it.

This is a rare instance where light as a medium is well done. Anybody who took an image as good as this one should be happy with it. Particularly like the rain squall in the middle. Congratulations.

Nicely captured atmosphere and mood. I love warm-tone b&w in general, and here it works quite well.

As do I.   But whenever I try to actually print a warm-tone BW, more often than not the physical result is sort of a low-contrast mess.  Any tips from anyone for putting something like this into a print?  If you or the OP feel this is too far afield for discussion of this particular image, I apologize in advance and will expect to be ignored or chastised appropriately Wink

I think your spell-checker / dictation software needs attention!

I think it's a fair question. I was probably headed for a metallic paper, but maybe some of the more experienced printer guys have something to recommend or at least a rule of thumb.

After searching the site for "sepia printing" and finding nothing that seemed to address the question of printing warm toned B/W images, I am going to start a topic in "Printers, Papers, and Inks" to see if we get some hits.

Get into Jopn Cone's Piezeography 9 color B&W inks, both warm and cold tones, or warm and cold tone papers and this will never be a problem again. Once you print with this system you'll wonder why you ever bothered with anything else. These work nice with my Epson R2880 which will easily accomodate 310gsm papers.

I PROMISE this is the last one! Just wanted to put the color rendition out there. Composite of 4 vertical images cropped to 2x3 and flipped horizontally just because. This is awfully close to what that storm looked like. MAN! I wanted to exaggerate those clouds Wink Wink

All, in the end, I too prefer the B/W versions. What is it about color that can be so disappointing?

No question, the B&W version is much better, there's more drama!

In some ways I prefer the color version, believe it or not, but I'm a sucker for a wide open American southwest landscape. That said, I don't know which is original and which is "flipped" but I think the road going bottom right to middle left in the color version creates a less "comfortable" composition than does the bottom left to middle-right in the B&W version, so it's sort of like I'm not looking at the same shot.

Ah David, you really struck gold with this.
I am a sucker for storms but the whole is just so much greater than the sum of its parts here.
No doubt serendipity played a role here - but boy, did you cash in big time.
Nonetheless I think a good print of the master file would really reveal its immense quality.

I feel privileged to have viewed the picture.
