I am preparing PMs for each of you. You will receive both your personal information that you provided to me for verification purposes. You will also receive the information provided by the person who has been selected to receive your print(s).

DO NOT SEND your prints until Monday, 6JAN14 at the earliest to allow time for corrections of addresses to be sent to me and thusly to you as well. We have until 31MAR14 to print and send. Plenty of time but I encourage you to get it done promptly. Please post here regarding your print being sent and also remarks about any prints received by you. Praise is always a good thing. April is a break period and also signup for Round 20 which will begin 1May.

So, with that, await your PMs and commence to talking. And off we go...

Figured this thread would be hard to miss.

I received my PM. Now off to thinking about what I am gonna shoot and print.
And what camera too use ... I can rule out the Nikon D200 - that's the easy part ...
Maybe the new old Mamiya 645 PRO that was given to me recently (haven't used it yet)
or take my old Leica III with uncoated 50 mm Summicron out again? I got myself some Fomapan film
to try out. I also got me Fomapan sheet film 18x24 cm for my old Russian FKD plate film camera but
I need to test for light leaks or internal reflections first. I had some weird patterns in my image last
time, that looks like the grit on the dark slide (very strange). Or load my Pentax 67 with 135 film for some
nice panorama shots (I've got a special insert for that). Or pinhole again, or ....

In short: This BPX19 assignment is a good reason to go out shooting again and use some nice tools.
And for me, thinking about what and how to shoot is also fun to do.

Most likely my 4x5, been thinking about a special leans I've been meaning to try out hacking off another camera.. Hmmmm

I just got my Calumet this week. I'll have some filters by week's end. I'll get some leatherette to repair my holders that need mending and then I will get me a negative for the printing.

I received 2 nice prints from Piu58.

Uwe, I will soon PM you my comments about them.

Take care.

Thanks, Dali. A reminder, folks. I need to know that you sent your print(s). If I miss the fact then you might get an unnecessary nastygram later.

Been quiet, folks. How is it going? It's OK. I haven't broke out the darkroom gear in a couple weeks either. We still have a couple months to go. Just don't wait too long. (he says, shaking his finger at the mirror...)

Was thinking about that, I'm in process of finishing.

prints sent!

Ok the print mailing is on hold for me, it came out so fantastically well that I'm ordering another print from the printer, I want to hold onto this one to make sure the second printing is to spec with this one! (Those light jet printers can have some issues at times.) But this one came out exactly as I wanted, it's really gorgeous! Hope the recipient thinks so.

About to run to the Post office to send my print. Wanted to have it gone by now but man I kept pushing it to the next day.

Good morning,

yesterday I recieved the wonderful print from AndreasT. At the Invalidenfiredhof (an old cemetery in Berlin) he caught e interesting situation whe the rain starts dripping an a man with umbrella came into view. It reminds me at the decisive moments of Cartier-Bresson.

I have received two gorgeous prints from dasBlute. Beautifully toned landscapes. My print is mounted and ready to go - to be shipped this weekend.

.... It reminds me at the decisive moments of Cartier-Bresson.

Last year I was at the IBC trade show, and spent most of the show across from another booth who had as their back wall a series of large B&W prints (perhaps 3m x 4m in size) which were on a translucent material, and backlit, with text overlaying each one. The one directly in front of me had the text 'capture the decisive moment' - which I found amusing, since the company was selling tripods. I wonder if Cartier-Bresson even owned a tripod.....

Thanks so much for the generous assessment, I hadn't thought of actually mounting the prints and shipping them though...

Mounting is certainly optional for this and isn't expected in any way.

I will hopefully have my print sent by valentines day.

My contribution is now in the hands of the postal system...

I got my print today from Andreios. Thank you very much. I like it a lot. I am moving soon, but in my new flat I will frame it and hang it on the wall.
