    Lovely prints indeed. I never manage to get such a decent sepia when I tone my prints. Or is it warm-tone paper?

    The paper is regular double-weight baryt paper made by Ilford. It's a matte surface which gives an incredible sense of depth in the print, but of course that's not easy to experience on a scan.
    It's neutral tone, but I think the quality of the paper affects how the sepia works.
    I used Rollei Sepia Toner ("RST")

    So you're using baryt, that must be it, because I'm using Ilford PE mostly (baryt is just too expensive for me given the fact that I still need a lot of tries to reach a satisfying print). I will keep that in mind and get some baryt paper as soon as I'm good enough in printing. Thanks for your help.

    Well, in my opinion, baryt is not that much more difficult, and when it work, it REALLY works! Nothing beats the look, and feel of a thick matte print! I have been making small prints to start with, cutting the papers down to 6x9cm or 9x12cm or something, to save on the expenses. I'm a student, so I also have to think about the economy a lot.
    I'd say, just get a small batch of it and try it out. The results might please you! -oh wait, that's the dangerous part of it! It's highly addictive! ;)
