Thanks Todd, I do shoot 11x14, its an old Seneca. The film was FP4+, bought during the last Ilford run. I really like the film. I like my palladium interpretation better myself, the tonal range is much smoother, and puts me in a very contemplative mood, where you can just explore the print looking for details. The cyanotype is much bolder.
I have received Jeff's prints this afternoon. Thank you very much for the beautiful prints!!
Today, I received Heather's, and Todds' prints in the mail. Thank you so much for the beautiful prints.
I finally finished my print mounting today and will post on Monday. Apols for the delay
My prints are in the post. Lets see how fast inter-continental postage from UK can be!
Heather, yours went first class UK
I am going to try and start making prints tonight. I am a major slug this time around and I apologize.
I received Phill's print yesterday. It's awesome, I have a set now! :D I like the print, it's more dark and moody than the other one which is bright and full of glowing light. Perfect partner. Thank you :)

I have printed these in various ways and the current trend is a little darker than originally. I'd be interested to here which you prefer and why?
I forgot to let you know that I received your prints the other day, and that I really like the intimate still life nature of them! You and Fred both gave our group a bonus print this time, and I feel like I short-changed everybody with only a single print!
Thanks again everybody,
Oh yeah, it was great to actually receive prints from everybody that signed up for this round!
No, it's not the same print but it's the same church, but facing the other way. I like the symmetry in the first "brighter" print with the glowing doorway and I like that it's more overall high contrast (nice highlights, nice shadows). But I like the darker one facing toward the alter too. They're a nice little pair together.
I only did two prints because I felt lazy making those pictures. I didn't nicely mask off the paper and it wasn't on 8x10 paper like I normally send out and it wasn't mounted. I didn't do paper niceties because I now realise the paper I was using is for some reason reacts radically different to what I was using previously (same brand, same paper name, different cyanotype reactions, I've now done side-by-side tests). I got frustrated and got sloppy.
Also, my sincere apologies for not acknowledging receiving your print earlier. I've been admiring the interesting wall picture and shown it to a few friends over the last two weeks too. Thank you.
I believe we're still eagerly awaiting Allen's prints? I'm looking forward to seeing a gum over platinum! :D No pressure, Allen ;)
