I just received a wonderful matted print from Ken Nadvornick. Ken, I'll pm you, but I can openly say to the forum that the whole work (from shooting to packaging) was really professional ;-). Many thanks, both to the sender and the organizer.

Glad you liked the prints.

I'm assuming that they got to you undamaged - that's the first time I've tried using a "mailing tube" ;) and was wondering whether it worked out well.

Out of curiosity, did you record what date they arrived. I'm curious how long the respective postal systems/customs departments had them in their hands.



The prints arrived sometime on or before the 14th. I really don't know, as I sent them to my fathers house, and they were waiting on me when I got there.

The mail tube worked out great! The prints weren't damaged at all.

Hi, guys. Things are running well. Eight to go yet to be sent. I have spoken with half of those and they will probably be sent sometime after the first.

Side note. Round 10 signup begins on the 1st of January. Please sign up only if you have sent your print. If you have not, please wait until you have sent your print before you sign up for Round 10.

Larry Gebhardt hooked me up. Big time.

First, He sent a beautiful 11x14 color print of orchids. The greens are so vibrant and not only I, but my wife fell in love with it immediately.
Second and third. He also sent me two prints of one of my favorite subjects, even though I have never had the opportunity to visit it. YOSEMITE! I beautiful print of Yosemite Falls (upper and lower, classic (AA) view). But very well printed. I was able to take a print in one of Ansel's books and place then side by side. Could not tell the difference. And another of Merced River on the valley floor with Half Dome rising in the background.

Larry, thank you for the wonderful prints.

I also recieved prints from Roger Thoms and Laurent. I thanked them as well. I really appreciate all of the effort going into the prints be everybody involved. Way to go, everybody.

I am wondering whether my recipient received his print, I would have hoped that it arrived by Christmas.

Happy new year to all,

I have received today a great print from Markrewald. Thanks a lot. :D

It's arrived in good shape despite the effort of the stupid postman to put it in the mail box.

Looks like things are wrapping up nicely. Still waiting on a couple. I'll know better when I get home tonight and consult files. I'm sorry I've been absentee this past week. Stuff going on. Everything's OK. No worries, eh. Now I need to print for the GPX13, BPX10 and PX18. OY! At least CIM is in the bag. Release for tomorrow in paper and .pdf.

Hello all

I have been busy and mentally not in the photographic world for far to long.

My own print is packed up and will be handed over to the post office later today.

My apologies to everyone concered by my lack of response.

Best regards
