I can honestly tell you that putting your back out is no fun. It’s also not caused by any strenuous exercise which I usually do on a daily basis. On the contrary, something as simple as grocery shopping can cause this. Housework, vacuuming, taking out the trash are just a few of the culprits. I’m now on day three and marginally better. Obviously a slow recuperation. Sitting is still a chore, but then so is lying down. Of course, none of this has anything to do with today’s post.
Here’s another from our darkroom toning session.
The above image shows a close up of the burl on the oak tree we have shown in earlier posts. We gave this a split toning effect with sepia and copper. This toning process took on a warm brown tone which we felt really enhances the beautiful bark and detail on this close up.

This image was toned using a combination of bleaching back to take down the highlights, sepia toning and finishing off with copper toner. I posted all the timings for those interested in toning work on my Flickr site:-
Have a happy, healthy day everyone. 😉
