This week I received :

David Dorcich's Sainte Chapelle ceiling detail. There are so many places I've never seen in Paris (and in France in general) that I'm sometimes ashamed... This one is almost abstract, with a nice perspective.

Gordrob's 2816. Very nice study of the mechanics, with great tones and composition. I'd love to see a bigger enlargement !

Many thanks !

Well the date on the back of the photograph uses the Australian way of dating something, most of the world also uses that date format.

I forgot to add, thanks for the comments.

Mick.

And Mick's card arrived in BKK today! Reminds me of my one and only HIE experiment many years ago with trees in a lake.
Great shot with lovely tonal range.

Did anyone have the date of 5/1/2011 as the taken date on Micks card or am I using last years calender?

Mike the date is correct, it is the fifth day of the first month of two thousand and eleven, which in numerals is written as 5/1/11, or 05/01/2011, or 05-01-2011.

The picture was taken this year whilst away on our summer holidays, which happen to be right now, as in January.

The next round, round 22, I will be sending a print that was taken on the 1/1/11, or 1-1-11, or 01/01/2011, or 01-01-2011, you have been warned!

Interesting how the people from the USA appear to have difficulty with the date format I have used. From what I understand of my travels to various countries, only the USA and the Philippines use the same format, the rest of the world overwhelmingly use the date format I use, whilst some countries have a third format.

Canada, probably due to their closeness the the USA, use both my method and the USA method, I believe. Possibly if they date in English it could often be the USA format but in French their other format.

Then there is the ISO date format, but that is a kettle of fish well left alone:laugh:

From memory I think Japan also uses the US date format - got confused there first time I visited on a job, when the date didn't look right. :O
