    Okay, a few typo's on my part so far and one new late member. PM's have been sent.

    I hope there are not too many more corrections - my fingers seem to be out of sync with my brain.

    I know some have started printing - me - I think I know what negative I want, but I've never printed it so time will tell :smile:

    I'm doing this a bit backwards. The address labels are all typed out, and the stamps have all been purchased, and the envelopes are all assembled.

    The (new to me) little dichroic enlarger is now set up and aligned. Now to calibrate the filter settings to align with expected contrast grade numbers.

    Not quite sure of the neg to print, but I have a roll I shot at night in DC last summer that looks very promising as negatives, so printing will likely start from that roll.

    My cards (except for Craig Cross, and Ruediger Stobbe, whose images from me are going in the same envelope for the small print exchange next week) are now in the mail.

    I also recieved Mike Wilde's "postcards" and as always, they were a treat. I missed a few rounds, very glad I'm back in.

    Been gone for a few days to the Nagasaki Lantern Festival -- maybe an image for a future exchange? -- and was glad to see two cards waiting for me upon my return home. Uwe's old Gasthof, whose roof looks like it's seen better days, and Mike Wilde's hat trick of cards. Image-wise I like the colour portrait best, but paper-wise I like the Capitol Building. It's always a pleasure to see these old papers in use!

    Couple more cards came my way. Mike Wilde's set of three. I agree with others, the portrait is just stunning. I had an old roll of Supra III paper which I was thinking of throwing out, but looking at this portrait, I'm starting to reconsider. The fogging on the edges does not take away from the image at all. Just lovely!

    Couple of duckies from Jim17x. Very nice capture. I like the sparkles on the water!

    Hi all, I was in a hurry to get them out before I started vacation.

    The image is a slot canyon wall in Goblin Valley Park, Utah. It was shot on Tri X with an M4-P and a 35.

    I can't wait to get home and see what prints the mail holds for me.

    Couple more cards made their way to Oregon.

    Warejn's Utah Rocks - beautiful pattern and texture!
    Pfiltz's baby shoes. Wow! Great attention to detail. I love composition, focus and lighting.

    Just a note to let the group know that my cards went out on Tuesday. They should be arriving soon, depending upon the postal service. I will comment on the cards I have received later (when I have more time).

    Regards,
    Darwin

    P.S. I tried to edit my previous post only to get the message "Error on page" on my browser. Am not sure what is going on. Any suggestions would be welcome.
