Re: muddy gum print--help?

I agree with what Keith and David have said ( great color balance, staining with magenta, increase pigment, what's your sizing method, decrease dichromate or exposure maybe...)but I did want to congratulate you on how far you have come in gum (hey that rhymes) even if this one is low contrast.  Just a little tweaking with their advice and you'll be there!

Hi Charles,

Seems to be a couple of problems. The image looks fine in terms of balance, however there appears to be significant magenta staining over the entire image which is flattening the contrast and suppressing the blues and yellows. Can you tell us something about substrate, pigments etc? In what order are you printing and what if any sizing you are using?
