Hello,

I received Friday (sorry for the late feedback post) a wonderful print from Kraker (Netherlands).
It is a wonderful print, Kraker, and I am very admirative of one being able to produce a high quality print with a temporary set up. The composition was interesting, and the deep rich blacks beautifully rendered. I like MGIV glossy and cold tones :) well done.
I did appreciate the accompanying letter, because it is very helpful to reframe the photograph within one's context.

I agree with your comment re: flattening the print. And I am sending you a PM with regards to this.

I will be sending my print out this week, I'll confirm when it is in the post.

Best

Hmmm...at what point do we assume the prints were lost in the mail? I sent mine 2 weeks ago and it was only traveling a couple states.

Hmmm...at what point do we assume the prints were lost in the mail? I sent mine 2 weeks ago and it was only traveling a couple states.I sent out mine Feb 10th and have not heard back from the receiver. At the same time some other prints were sent and they all made their way. So either it is lost or the one I sent the print to has not found the time to confirm that the print arrived, how can I know. I think it is best to wait until the recipient complains before I send a second print.

Cheers

Unfortunately, not everybody in the past has adhered to the Please-Let-Us-Know policy. Hopefully that will change in this round. Give it time. More than likely, as Rudy mentions, an overlooked need to give feedback here on this thread. That's all. Don't worry.

Well, I have received my prints for the round. Thomas sent me the product of a period of time where I usually get a lot of inspiration. BLOWING OFF STEAM WITH A CAMERA. Clearing the air. And what a beautiful result.

The first print was made with his Hassy in a small German town of a beautiful found arrangement of a simple tree situated on a lakeshore/riverbank in between to identical benches. So, great symmetry from the start. Pleasing to look at. When refocusing a couple passed before him so he tripped the shutter and that totally made the second print. And to top it off, he reproduced his triptych in Moersch Lith and sent a print of each by those means.

Thomas, thank you for such a wonderful gift. I cannot tell you how much I really appreciate your association here on APUG and the honor of being chosen to share your vision. Thank you very much. You are a good friend.

Well, so far we have 13 of 27 sent, nearly half.

We have 9 of 27 received, one third.

Five particpants have both sent a print to their assigned participant and received one from the participant assigned to them. They are lorirfrommontana, naugastyle, Romary, ghostcount and Christopher Walrath.

I will contact those still active on April 1st personally for an update.

I came home yesterday and found a very well made package... after some cautious opening, I found a gorgeous print of a water fall in Death Valley !

Thanks Ghostcount for this ! I really appreciate the composition and the print !! (but once again this challenges my venture in LF...)

I hope I'll be able to send this week, once I've made my decision about what to send !

I posted mine today, because of Easter break here, I was told by the post office that it should be with the recipient in 7 days or so.

That is the very first time that I did not send a letter along. If my sender sends me a PM when he receives the print I shall endeavour to give him the print background by PM. I will be out of the country for a long period of time, so make sure that you PM me as I won't access the forum on a regular basis.

Also, due to my hectic schedule, this is the first time that I was not able to print new work, and I sent an old print. However, this is one of the final prints that I am still very happy with, so hopefully, the recipient enjoys it all the same.

So that should be it for me. I received my print for round 10 and sent mine out.

Happy Easter to all,

Kind regards

Delphine
