Watcha Michael,
Excellent night shot and bit of observation, well executed. So, that's how cooltone prints out, cos I int gorra enlarger I've never used the cool and warm papers, everything I do is with POP papers or ordinary RC treated as POP or contacted.
Best

ps, 'I like how you manage to make photographs look genuinely old. Most examples I see look like modern photographs that try to look old but just don't look right.' : print light tone heavy, a tip from Roger Hicks & Frances Schultz in B&W Photography

A super shot and so well spotted. Perhaps you should present the store with a copy of your photograph. I am sure the sign would be repaired immediately. Very well done. CLIK,

Excellent spot and take - really amusing Smile You've also coped superbly with the contrasting light between the interior and exterior. All the best. Bruce

Cheers Bruce. Crikey, 20 clicks in one day - that's never happened before Smile Thank you peeps.

Mick, regarding your comments about cool/warm papers - one thing I know is that different monitors can have can have quite a drastic effect on the tones of a b/w photograph. The monitor I currently use has a noticably cooler appearance than my previous one. This is rather frustrating as I can never be certain if people are seeing my photos the same way as I do. The effects of warm/cool papers are pretty subtle, too subtle I suspect, to be accurately conveyed on a monitor. It's annoying but I don't know if there's anything I can do about it.

I really like this shot. Could it do with a bit more space at either side of the sign? Perhaps by changing to landscape? Probably just personal preference...

Funny you should say that, I was going to print this horizontal (it was actually taken in that format) but changed my mind because I thought the extra bits on the sides were unnecassary. Win some........Smile

Thanks Bev. They were kind enough to leave it like this for a month although oddly enough, the day after the photo was posted the sign was repaired Smile

I used to pass an amusement arcade on the way home from work whose broken illuminated sign read 'Amusements'. I never did get around to photographing it and photoshopping to make the 'ts' look dark, too. (Yes, I know yours wasn't 'shopped but we're not all so lucky!)
Love it. and OMG that they haven't noticed.
