Double Feature/Ingo and Rudiger-you crazy ass Germans man. Ich liebe die Deutsche richtung der stimmung

Moose Calf by LingJon-lovely subtle tones and vvg for first serious printing attempt.

Billilla House by Mick Fagan-like the contrast between the darker toned foliage and the lighter toned building. The lighting gives the whole image a slightly surreal quality.

Boat Repair by Mark_S-reminds me of those 19th/early 20th century survey photos, with that pale sky and tonality.The windows seem like eyes looking out from the past.

Gordon, your neighbours will certainly get an interesting array of personalised cards from around the world, they really are lucky neighbours.

As you have my card, I will not send another.

I'm new at this so I promise to be more informative next time around. That's a 90mm Super Angulon on a Zone VI 4x5, using FP4+ and 510-Pyro 1:500 for 50 minutes with 30 seconds initial agitation and four inversions at 12.5, 25 and 37.5 minutes. The paper developer is Zone VI, 1:3 for 2 minutes. The print was made with split grade filtration.

Thanks Michael With the original in my hand it make it much easier to see how different developers or toners affect the print. It is a learning process. :)

Mick.

Mick - yours was the first to get here - it seems that the mail moves quite quickly between the north & south hemispheres. It is a beautifully printed postcard and I love the contrast.

To the rest of the group - please don't mail a second card - I'll let you know when they come in. The postman should pick up on where the cards are destined as more start to come in. The postal code is correct so that should direct them here as well.

Thanks to everyone for their concern

OK so this week, I got 8 fantastic postcards. In no particular order:


Black Dog sent a postcard that had a cryptic description
A very nice image of a leaf on a wood board from PeteH unfortunately had two scuff marks made during transit
Greg, you and your brother don't look alike at all! :p
I really like 20 104 from Michael
Mick sent a nice pic of a castle/masion
Rudiger definitely sent a far out postcard - like a story board
Now I really like Mark_S' postcard - I think I will definitely head up there some time
Now the moose calf was AZO like from KingJon

Great images again all around. I sent mine this week, so I hope they all make it to their destinations intact. Sent one to Sean again anyway.

Regards, Art.

Hey all!

I just got another nice pile of postcards in the mail today - thanks to everyone who has sent theirs so far! There have been a lot of great cards again this round. I also wanted to say that I got a note from someone about Jake's (Black Dog) mailing address being incorrect. His country of residence should read Scotland, so if you have an address that is another country, please let me know.

Thanks!

One more.Thanks to Black Dog I received a nice abstract image of" Lone and level sands1 Utah Beach" Very nice paper and interesting reflections. I just wish post office would not plaster bar code all over the front of the image :mad:

Cheers Greg

I've gotten a whole pile of postcards so far. From: Mike Wilde, Rudiger, Ingo, Mick, Michael, PeteH, Mark, Robert, and Jake. Great work everybody! This more fun than I thought it would be.

I've got 16 cyanotypes printed so far. After seeing that 5x7 postcard arriving, I decided to send 5x7's this time. I toned a couple but wasn't happy with the results. When toning with coffee, you need to keep the pictures imersed for over 30 minutes. Not an easy task if you don't have the time. Most of you will be getting the raw cyanotype. If you prefer it toned then my postcards are interactive! Fill a tray with tea or coffee and simply soak (keeping it imersed!) until the desired tone appears. 15-45 minutes. You will all be getting one this round.

We expect some sun tomorrow so hope to get a bunch more done.

Oh Howard, lucky you, that you have the decision to print on a rainy day. Here where I live we have not had rain for weeks (or should I say months). And if I look into our backyard I would prefer to print on a rainy day soon.

ciao

Great idea you have there. Everyone could tone theirs and we could compare the results. Might be the basis of a new exchange eh?

Rudiger-you asked about Presycycol. Well I've just printed up a whole load of images for the next round shot on ClassicPan 100 and devved in Presycycol, so I'll make sure you get one. IMO this brew is vg with all 3 speeds of Classicpan, especially the 400 which can be on the grainy side (it is Forte 400 after all).
Greg-maddening, isn't it?:(:(

My cards are already sent. They are a photo of the ruins of a city (Belchite) that in the Spanish civil war, in 1937, was intensivelly bombed and most of unhabitants were killed.
After 70 years, ruins remain nearly in the same situation.
I hope you'll like it!
