ILFORD Direct digital prints on silver halide paper

All,

I just received some prints from Ilford Direct in the UK ( http://www.ilfordlab.com/.../page/61/Black-and-White-Prints-From-Digital.htm ). Although I wasn't using a Leica, I thought I'd post my excitement here since I know a lot of you are B&W enthusiasts too.

I used them because they advertised digital prints on Black and White silver gelatin photographic paper, and having been highly satisfied with their film P&P service, thought I'd give it a go.

The prints I got back are amazing - the lack of colour cast, deep blacks and whitest of whites are amazing. The prints truly look like film, thanks in part to the grain effect (added in-camera I'm embarassed to admit).

Here are the images I printed, all from the family walk on Boxing Day:

I can REALLY recommend this service.

Cheers,
dD
