RE: peeling the apple + "American Photography"
I have assumed that Don's proclamation was tongue in cheek. He is
much too knowledgeable about alt prints to think that a digital print from a
plug in could ever match the unique tonalities, textures, and sensual
reality of a PT/PD, gum, van dyke, etc. print. And he is all too aware that
each process renders highlights, midtones, and shadows differently...it
isn't just a matter of print color even if it DOES almost (an important
modifier) match the alt print. I mean, seriously, the example of "Platinum"
is green!!! It looks like a photo of Kermit without the frog.
Thanks for the great put on, Don! Some people actually fell for it!

Ohhh, Don, don't make me faint...
We might as well face it, Alternative Process Printing is now passť. Better
plan on adding a chapter for PS plugins to the Gum book!
