I managed to selenium tone the RC (plastic) landscape proof print using a two bath bleach and tone procedure. To explain, plastic RC proof prints will not tone in the way fibre base fine art silver gelatin prints do so they need to be bleached and then toned in selenium (filthy dangerous chemicals.) Below is a jpeg of the toned landscape print. Toning definitely gives the print that extra bit that makes it a classic modernist landscape.

I am beginning to think this style of landscape manages to slide in with the still lifes photos. However the low resolution jpeg doesn't seem to work the way the print does. It has also been coloured to attempt a selenium toned look.
