> 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!

Just trying to have a little fun! :)
