I'll log these when I get home. Don't worry about being late. That's why we're going to six month format next year. I realize that stuff just comes up, yours truly included.

OK. We are at 10 sent and 6 received from 21 total. Don't worry. No need for the BIG LIST . . . list . . . (list). Not yet. ;P

Oh my GOD! I have received 2 beautiful prints from Matt King. The first "Looped" is a macro shot of a rope on absolutely black background. The detail and tonality is just superb!
However, it's the second photo that just blew me away! An amazing photo of a fishing boat on a wharf on the Fraser River. Matt, your choice of gloss paper for this print is absolutely brilliant. It makes the water sparkle with reflections from the glossy surface. Absolutely perfect detail, sharpness, composition. Man, I wish I could learn to take pictures like that! Thank you Matt! I love this photo!

So Chris, I'm out of this round. I both sent and received the prints. This was a lot of fun!

I received an amazing print from ccross yesterday. It's a beautiful landscape shot. Thank you very much, Craig.

This is me for this round. I sent and received a print. I'm already looking forward to the next exchange!

Chris, Due to the new meaning of the word "junk" I would like to clarify that I've have sent you prints of old buildings (Mayan Ruins) and not body parts.

Not that there's anything wrong with that...

I don't think one could grope a ruin.

I received my print in the mail today, a gorgeous carbon from ghostcount. It took me a few moments to realise what it was, but then I turned it to the light and there you go. I was amazed. I'd seen carbons before but never up close, and up close is definately the way to see them. This means a lot to me, as carbon is a part of the next step I'd like to take with my process and now I have something to look at while I work towards it. And - a bloody brilliant photograph.
Thank you for your letter too - I really do appreciate getting some background on the print.

On that note - has the person I sent my print to received it? I was hoping that registered mail international would be quick enough, but if it's gone MIA I can send out another promptly.

Same question from me to my person? My print was sent over three weeks ago to a destination that should have taken about a week at most to arrive. If it's gone missing I can send another...

Alex,

I'm glad you like it. I turned to Pt/Pd because of this exchange through photobum's print and been printing with alt.process since then. I took up carbon from Jim Fitzgerald and the wealth of information this forum provides.

Good luck in learning it; this forum, the carbon works and Dick Sullivan's e book will get you there in no time.

Good morning all,

I received a very nice print from Keith Pitman yesterday, but I guess the postal service didn't see it that way and thought it would be a good idea to fold it. Unfortunately, the fold broke both layers of the matting and the picture. Still a pretty nice picture though.

Thanks Keith,

Craig

So placing a printed admonition "PHOTOGRAPH: Do Not Bend" on both sides of the package doesn't do any good, or does it insure that the Postal Service will bend the package? Next time I'll reinforce the package with a steel plate.

The ironic thing is that it was bent right through the "Do Not Bend" labels you put on the package.
