          Comments about Oriental Seagull VC-FB DW 16x20/50 Glossy:

          I bought this paper instead of the Ilford paper because of the B&H student discount and I must say I am very pleased!! It is just as good or even better than Ilford in many ways. I feel like it is a little less contrasty and the whites are not as bright but it is still a VERY beautiful paper. I cannot wait to finish printing my portfolio on the 16x20 paper. I also bought 8x10 and 11x14 and they are all very consistant with each other. Nice deep blacks.

          I love this paper! I first bought it because it was a little cheaper than Ilford and I had read a lot of really great reviews on it. It's a little different that Ilford.. but it is the same quality. The highlights are a little different, they are not as stark white as Ilford but I actually like the Oriental better.

            Exceptional prints come easily with this paper. With a great range of print color available through changes in development and toning one isn't stuck with any one thing from this paper.

            This paper is great! Fifty sheets each one was in good condition. Aside from the paper, which was obviously good, [...] And the package was nice and secure. There is nothing worse than receiving a damaged box when there is light sensitive material inside.

              Its hard to find good silver gelatin paper these days, as many already know. I tested this paper against others and found the tonalities richer and the blacks better than most.
