  Thanks for taking the time on commenting. The buttons is actually red. Everything in the cement factory is covered in a fine gray dust, so what you're seeing is the red thru the dust. The actual photograph that was used for this image is :

  Neither the colors, nor their placement in these prints have been made up.. and if anything, they are less saturated than the actual colors (the result of having pigments laid down on uncoated watercolor paper). I guess it's a matter of where someone is coming from. Most color photographers object to the colors because they are too mute, b/w photographers because they too vivid :^)

  I guess the bottom line is they satisfy me, and I sell a lot of them :^)

  Thanks for looking at my images. I've only been doing alt-processes for about 8 months (ciba and b/w fiber for about 20 yrs though).

      Jim Collun - Hope I spelled that correctly, my hand writing is terrible. Platinum over Pigment is interesting but I found the colors too intense. The scene with the pipes and guard rails worked better then the Red Button which is actually pink. Why not a pink button, I asked? The button looked like a pasted on sticker. Perhaps if the edges were feathered or the tones were more muted it would have pleased me more. Little more finesse would help but we agreed that we could all feel the dust or powder. The broad range of gray tones was wonderful and well executed. I'll need to try the Pigment over some day.
