midtone measles

Above is a gravure I printed tonight. It has a bad case of midtone measles. Click on it to view larger.
Below is the original positive the plate was made from (curve not shown). Click it to enlarge.

The positive mid-tone plate is an absolutely beautiful image. The light and texture are amazing.

Were you able to get the gravure process to "work" for you with this image?

The mid-tone areas work quite well in Platinum and Palladium hand coated print processes. Perhaps not in photogravure?
