Taken during a dander about in the spring - the beginnings of new growth in the ash tree at the bottom of our garden:

On Foma Nature fibre paper, via HP5+ on the 'Blad.

I did a second print and dunked it some sepia toner just to see what gave.  I think the bleach was a bit strong as it worked fast - I could probably have pulled it a little earlier:

The two prints are very different - I can't quite decide which I like best.  The element of mystery is better in the first one, I think, but the contrast seems a little low by comparison to the second, which has a lot more sparkle to it.  In the toned print, though, the background is too bright and detracts from the main subject.
