Another example of a straight-forward darkroom produced monochrome photographic print. Then the very same print but with a blue tone chemical wet-process. The success of a blue toned print depends upon a number of factors.
Firstly the actual print itself, how it is printed (how deep the shadow details are etc). Then the strength of the toning solution, the temperature of the toning solution and how long or short the time the print is immersed in the toner. The blue toning takes place in the first tray which holds the actual blue toner solution. The second tray is basically just a salt water solution to halt the blue toner and wash the print. The print should then be properly washed and dried.
