The paper is finally dry (or, almost dry since it's 30C 65% in my darkroom right now!) below you may find links to see the print:

(Very good detail! Can you see the man? I think he's smoking... Can you see the fine lines of the fire escape?)

This is one-coat (will do further coats later) Schmincke Ivory Black. Print size is 25 x 16cm or 9 13/16 x 6 5/16".

I'm very impressed. I got incredible shadow detail with my 2A+1B Trad. Cyanotype curve designed for Masa Paper. Shadow detail is even better than the Cyanotype version. Image is softer than Cyanotype but the detail is still there...
