Printing this as a cyanotype enhances the wintry feeling, and I like the composition very much too!

When you designate a negative for cyanotype, what do you do differently? Expose and develop for higher contrast perhaps?

Jackie, Thanks so much for looking and commenting!
The idea is to try and match the sensitizer ES (exposure scale) and negative DR (density range); exposure is the same. I expose 2 negatives the same way and develop differently for the intended printing method.

Thanks for your response! That makes sense... and apparently I have even more to learn about cyanotype than I'd realized :-) I've made a few, and am hoping to try again in the coming months.
