Since we're on the subject of VDBs, can I ask those of you that have seen
them in person to compare them to the look of something that I've been
making lately? I really like the look of Ilford warmtone fibre after being
toned in Selenium for 5 minutes. I find that the blacks take on a dark
chocolate look. Do VDBs have a similar look? What are the differences?
