The shading of this ink is phenomenal. It also looks excellent in a demonstrator pen.

A nice rich colour!
Another ink about which I've heard a lot. It is a lovely terra cotta colour, and one which will be nice for personal correspondence, perhaps on parchment-coloured paper.

I LOVE this ink.
The shading on this is amazing, ranging from a deep red-brown (nearly black where it pools) to a bright, burnt umber. Equally beautifully on white or off-white paper. Like nearly all the Diamine inks I've tried, it's fantastically well-behaved, even across a range of pens and on cheaper paper. Will definitely be getting a full bottle of this -- I have a feeling that it will be my new go-to journaling color!

League of its own
This is a colour which is hard to classify and asks a lot of questions. Is it orange? Is it red? Is it brick? Is it a shiner or a sheener? WHY WON'T IT CLEAN OUT OF MY PEN???!?! I'm not prepared to answer any of those questions.

Very happy with the color.

Spicy hot is how this color looks to me! It's a gorgeous reddish orange. It makes me feel happy! And Diamine ink performs well in every pen I've ever tried. Great flow!

shift of focus
It is almost mesmerizing. Instead of reading what I had written, I repeatedly found myself focusing on the color and having to go back to reading. It is a medium almost gentle contrast which had to work to compete with the blue graph paper lines on the rhodia pad. Honestly, it is a great color. It may not work in every situation, but it has personality and style. I plan to use it on some upcoming thank you notes to give them some flair.
