got yours Aggie.
had a recount.. 11 cards out of 17, more than I remembered!
I've received 11 as well.

I will do a count but I think I've received fewer than 11. Alas, I believe that it's not so much a case of cards getting lost in the mail as some people not sticking to their commitment. Even 11 out of 17 still means that a lot of people don't bother.

This is the second round I have participated in. The first was round 2, I believe. In round 2 I received 9 postcards, which was at best 50%. This round I received 11, a much better rate.
And yes, in case any of you are going through your cards to see which one I sent, um... mine are not out yet. More accurately, not printed. I'm am making Albumen postcards. September came and went with negatives enlarged, paper coated with albumen, and the conviction that the beautiful September weather would continue. Unfortunately, October weekends were uniformly wet and cloudy, so no printing was possible.
I'm hoping for a sunny weekend or two so that I can get these postcards printed and out, so I hope that everyone will get at least 12 of 17 for this round.

Maybe a friendly reminder would be appropriate for those who have not sent out their cards? I see that David and Jon have responded that they are still working on it. What about the other five?

I've got 11 as well. If anyone hasn't received mine yet then let me know.

Round 4 and round 5 are drying, so one batch will be a little late, and the next will be ready to go as soon as the address list is out.
Couple of days for the participant list (addresses) to be sent...
I'm, looking forward to seeing Jon's print... that sounds very interesting indeed!
BTW, all the "early printers might" need to dig thru for some old excess cards as we've had a few additions this round (over the ones dropping out).

I printed 25 in each batch. How many are in group 5?
haven't counted exactly (and it's at home) but I'm pretty sure we've got more newbies than ones that have dropped out. Probably 22... I'll confirm tonight and post in the rnd 5 thread (for Kate too)
Hey - I just got a card from New Jersey, but can't remember if I signed up for Round 5. Do we have some super-late round 4 going on? Or is this a new round?

That was mine--late round 4 postcard.

I got yours yesterday too, David. Very nice.
Thank You David! I noticed the new address list for round 5 is in my email so the mystery is solved. Note to self: Check email inbox before blathering on APUG.
Now off to the darkroom for round 5!

Just got my postcard from David. What a cool building! It's the type of place that only running out of film could make me leave. Does anybody have any knowledge about postcard sizes? 5x6-ish ok? Is cot 320 too flimsy without backing?
nice image david
Todd, 4x6 is the perscribed size to obtain discounted rates if they exist. We have had bigger ones (5x7) that have got through, or you can always pay the full rate to dazzle us with your art :)
And yes Dougie, your in!

thanks, nige. 4x6 it is, but dazzle?.. I don't know about that unless you are dazzled easily. hope to get he postcards out in the next week.
