    BLIND PRINT EXCHANGE ROUND 17 (BPX17) - STATUS AND UPDATES

    Well, here we are again! Remember that the exchange time period is February-April. May-June will be rest and we will have the round 18 signup in July.

    Here is the roster. I have just sent out the PMs so if you didn't get one please let me know ASAP. Do not send your print until Thursday, February 7 to allow for address corrections just in case, heaven forbid, I screwed something up or someone moved since they sent their address and forgot to tell me. Your PM will also contain your own address; please check it and notify me at once if it is incorrect or out of date.

    The roster this time is:

    1 Eugene (anikin)
    2 Birger (BirgerA)
    3 Craig (ccross)
    4 Wendy (cepwin)
    5 Nicolas (Dali)
    6 Paul (darkroom)
    7 David (djhopscotch)
    8 Katie (Katie)
    9 Ken (Ken Nadvornick)
    10 Laurent (Laurent)

    13 Paul (paul_c5x4)
    14 Uwe (piu58)

    Amazingly enough, I am the first one in this round to receive a print. As a matter of fact, I have received two beautiful prints from Uwe (piu58). One is a landscape picture of an interesting rock formation in Iceland. And the second is my favorite - some really unusual leafy plant named Aeonium. Really cool! Thank you Uwe!

    Oh crap I'm "that" guy that messes up the system. The house is up for sale, and looking like it's sold, and we got to be out asap. I've got my print ready, just haven't mailed it, but our address is up in the air. Should I pm somebody our kids address?

    I received tim k's prints yesterday, and Tim hit it out of the park, one mounted 3 unmounted prints that are all suitable for hanging. Fantastic work.

    Thanks, I think my generosity increased, the closer I got to the deadline for the house move.

    I received Mike Sherck's wonderful print in the mail with a lovely letter with all the details. I agree Mike that the girl's expression absolutely makes the image interesting! It will fit very well in my collection of received prints; I have a viewing area in my woman-cave where I display all my gifted prints! Thanks!

    I promise to get moving on mine soon... :smile:

    Might be a few days late, but I will take part

    Life and this dreadful thing called work has gotten in the way of my darkroom time, but I have decided on what to print. I plan to get some darkroom time over the weekend, so I might be a little bit late, but I'll get there.

    I received a very nice print from Reed, so I can be moved in the "received" list.

    Reed, I really like the image, the different sections in the image work very fine !

    I'm still stuck in my printing, but I hope I'll get something soon enough (I suspect I have too many negatives to chosse from, does it happen to anybody else ?)

    Laurent,

    I'm so glad you like it! I'm not sure I do myself :laugh: but I see all my work differently a few months down the road. It's too close right now.

    In the spirit of updates, my print is completed. Including toning. I also like to custom mount and matte my submissions. But I'm not quite there yet. Soon...
