Liquidambar print underside down

It never ceases to amaze me the difference in the prints obtained it the leaf is placed upside to the paper/fabric or downside. I tried to treat the leaves in these prints exactly the same. I understand the stomata on the underside of the leaf probably uptakes the ferrous sulphate more that the topside of the leaf resulting in same a different print - one bold and definite the other ethereal and much paler but both beautiful in their own right
