This print was made with an old sample kit of Agfachrome Process R, probably dating from the early eighties. Like its more famous counterparts Ektaprint and Cibachrome, Agfachrome R is a discontinued dye destruction process that was used to make direct positive prints from positive slides. The exposure time for this image was approximately half an hour; and while the original slide shows rich hues of blue and red in the winter evening sky, in the Agfachrome print, only blacks and greens remain.
