Thanks for the feedback Alan...would you say the same for my swan/egret images shown in my 1X.com link? -?

Looking at some of those images I would say the low key images, and those with the nice bright colours would look best on a metallic paper then mounted however you would want. In the quick look I had, the image of the ice fisherman, with the tree and skein of geese, and the two either side of it in the gallery would be absolutely perfect for the brushed aluminium finish. The sample set that I got from Whitewall uses a bright saturated image of a hot air balloon for all the samples except the brushed aluminium, for that shot they use one from the Antartic, of penguins. Really nice set of images, wish I had a bit more time right now to look at them.

Chauncey here is a link to the US version of the Lab Whitewall (external link) that I got the test samples from. If you scroll down to the bottom there is a link to the sample pack, and it really is worthwhile getting. It gives samples of a wide range of papers, so useful even if you mostly use a different lab. I had a 16×12 lightjet print done on Ilford Black and White paper, with the approx 1.75" border. It looks a lot nicer than monochrome conversions printed on normal colour papers such as Fuji Crystal Archive. The difference is had to describe, but there all the same. The blacks seem just a little better with a lovely clean bright white highlight. I don't know it's just like it used to be printing from FP4 onto Ilford MG RC paper in my own darkroom.

B&W on metallic is great.
