I got my lovely print from Dietmar this morning, thankyou.
Hi Mark. I am glad you like the print.
As for grain or no grain.
Sometimes, when medium format is too grainless for me, I am happy to have re-started with my minolta 35mm.
Grain and so called "non-perfection" often lead to phantasy and emotions;).

I got a lovely print from Randy (Rlibersky) today. It shows the interior of a general store in an old western town in Montana. It conveys a real timeless mood, enhanced by the fact that it's printed on 1949 (!) Kodak Illustrator paper.

I received today morning not one but TWO fantastic prints from jeroldharter!
We like the same photographic paper I see... even if I don't use it often because in Italy it's becoming hard to find Kentmere (sob!).
Really many thanks!

Received a beautifully printed abandoned mine from Simone Amici in Genova. There is something fascinating about dereliction which this shot catches very well.

Yesterday I got a wonderful picture from Kevin (Spiralcity). It is a colour Chicago cityscape. Ahhh, it makes me remember about a wonderful week I spent in Chicago some 12 years ago.
Thanks Kevin, for the picture and for the memories.

I sent my print out today. Last week I recieved 2 very nice prints from Mark (unhinged). Mark, I DO very much appreciate your thoughts in your choice of prints to send to me. You say you are new to this? Couldn't prove it by the prints. I wish mine looked that good when I started out.

My print went out today. It has to go almost half way around the world, so I hope it gets there reasonably soon, and in good shape.

Yesterday, my wife phoned and told me that I got a big post package from a woman called "Sonia" from Italy;) (my wife didnt remember apug exchange)
I knew at once and was happy/curious the whole day. Surprise, surprise...
I got a excellent print from Sonia, a wonderfull composition from a corn field from Piemont/Italy. I really appreciate the work and effort you put in this print. It looks wonderfull, perfect. And I most like, that we both seem to print&frame the same size, so it even fits perfect in my frames, too. As my wife adores Italy, she was happy, too.
Thank you very much Sonia, great exchange Art :)
Thanks Dietmar I am very pleased that you have pleased my printing! and also to your wife!
:) :) :) :)
much greetings to all your family
it go soon to see your site
