I received a lovely Pt/Pd print from Joe Lipka on Friday. Thanks Joe.
What I love about the exchange is that I get to see:
- processes that I have not yet tried
- excellent examples of Alt Print work
- different presentation styles
What I dont like is:
- That I want to now try these new processes
- knowing I still have 'a lot' to learn about the processes that I have tried
This is my second exchange and I must commend all on the quality of submissions that I have received so far.
And the print has just arrived on Saturday, really nice work, I like the choosen pigment colour and the image very much and I will thank you for the words about yourself. I think I will do this next round too.

And I agree full with Phill's thoughts about the exchange, the prints I got so far are a stimulus to go on with and learn more about all these nice processes.
Received two wonderful pt/pd prints from Carl over the weekend. Thank you so much. Mine hopefully on their way next week at some point.
Thanks again Carl, not just for the prints, but for organising this exchange as well.
your comments are appreciated!

Rory - the man who had the temerity to suggest he might not be an expert - sent a stunning portrait the strength of which is incredible! The image is of Clarence Clemens whom I do not know - I did search the web and came across a Clarence Clemons - a sax player who is fantastic so if this is a mistake its a great one as I am about to order some of his music for sure - whoever the image is of it is stunning with wonderful blacks and a great range of tones and just lovely light.
More for my wall and thank you for images that will find space of my walls!
Clarence Clemons also happens to play in a little combo called the E Street Band. If only I could remember the lead singer's name...
I'm lucky enough to have a copy of that print hanging on my wall, too. Plus, the maker is a hell of a nice guy...
I received two print from Carl today. Lovely pinhole work Carl.
Thanks very much
I'm so glad you like the print! It was a fun one to shoot, and fun to print!
Thanks for your kind words :) I recommend his album Peacemaker, just sax and drums.
Hi Kerik, thanks! (Kerik completely changed the way I print Pt/Pd, he's the man)
Kerik - the man...
you should've seen him in a kilt and playing the bagpipes. I'm sure there are some incriminating photos of him knocking about - acting up on the last day of our course. But you're right Rory everyone should do his plt/pd course!
