I agree. I love that kind of shot. I wonder if it could be a little more contrasty.

Thanks for your suggestion, Jeremy. I should have optimized this for screen display, I guess. I will give it a try with higher contrast.
I printed this on Hahnemühle Photo Rag Metallic in 8“x8“ and like the result – I understand that even that paper can’t create more contrast than a screen, but it is quite unique with its mother of pearl reflections. Properly lit, it has the right amount of contrast for my liking. For other papers, increasing the contrast would be required.

To my mind, that’s an improvement. It seems to have a warm tone applied, which I’m less sure about.

Yes, duotone in C1. Maybe the highlights are a bit too warm. Still experimenting with it. The adjustments for highlights and shadows for duotone in C1 are super-coarse, i.e. just increments of 1 have a significant impact.
I printed this on Hahnemühle Photo Rag Metallic which has a pretty warm paper white to begin with when not looking at the metallic reflections. And no, I did NOT warm up the highlights in an attempt to simulate the paper white. 😃
