Lluis,  nice to see prints drying in a row.  I miss my darkroom but I always 
struggled with making consistent quality prints.  If I went back a few weeks 
later to make another print a gift, it didn?t look the same as the first 
set.  Sometimes better, sometimes worse but never the same.  Maybe that?s 
the uniqueness of a real silver gelatin print.  With Lightroom and the Epson 
P800, consistency is a given - if you make the right edits.

Be well,

Richard Clompus
