My first postcard arrived last night; Birger's orchid. My twisted old mind thought it was something else until I examined it more carefully. Very nice.

I also received Dave Martiny's card, and my first words were "I really like this print". I find this image to be very elegant. A simple, clean composition that gives the viewer lots to look (and think) about. It is my favorite to-date for this round. Dave's use of light is perfect. The braided hair, with highlights, makes this image sing. Wonderfully photographed and printed.:)


P.S. My cards will go to the post office tomorrow.

I received Dave Martiny's "Not really naked" today. Wonderful print, very rich tones, and I can almost feel the skin on the shoulder ! The very simple and effective composition make this a favourite for this round.

Thanks Dave !

My mailbox has been lonely for cards but thankfully Ozphoto's arrived today -- a somewhat whimsical "Troy and Bubbles". I love how the curve of the bubbles follows the slight curve of his body, and the way he almost seems to be emerging from the wall. (nice stamp as well!)

Received Dave Martiny's "Not Really Naked" card today. A really simple subject executed beautifully -- I like this one a lot! I've never tried Tri-X in Rodinal but now that I've seen what it looks like in a print I just may have to try it myself.

Thanks Rachelle.

I've tried printing that neg on many occasions and never quite nailed it, so put it back into the file to be re-visited at a later date.

I knew I wanted to print it for PC21, so gave it another spin and am really happy with the result.

The postal officer emptied the cupboards looking for the "right sized" stamp to fit - the sheets actually had two sizes, and he spent forever getting me the little ones. :)

Three awesome cards so far!

DPRSILVER's cactus- prickly subject, hehe...love the selective focus on this.
Dave's PG nude- such beautiful light...just gorgeous.
Birger's orchid- great closeup, very abstract...took me a while to figure out what it was.

10-28-2010, 10:16 AM
Oops, missed one!
Uwe's old lime tree- that is one BIG tree! looks like a nice shady spot to rest... :-)

Hi, I already received quite a few cards and would like to comment on them. Also, wanted to let you know that my cards are printed and labeled and will be sent out next week!

Darwin's Cactus: love the tonality and the sharpness (hehe)!
Rachelle's afternoon snooze: I like how small this person looks next to this house, and how well you can see the differences in the structures
Dave Martiny's PG Nude: interesting light in this very elegant photo! love the composition!
Black Dog: now this is something! a photo that doesnt make any sense without the quote on the back. But I get it - and I like it! Bold, against all so-called "rules", artistic, almost abstract and very strange photo! Thanks for thinking outside of the box.
Mike Wilde's collection of old and strange papers: Very good light and composition in the baggage building photo! I like the rotten... Really dont know anything to say about the other two, sorry!

Greetings, Chris

Thanks....can't remember what I sent you now!

Great card from Darwin arrived this weekend - love the contrast and the shallow DOF. If this was a square print it's something I'd love to have on my wall (not that I think I'm such a prickly person!).

@Black Dog: it was the old windows dreams..

My cards are printed, addressed and ready to go to the post office.

Received Mike Wilde's package, really like Soaring Spaces, like the image and the paper, almost dream like.
Rachelle's aka mooseontheloose came next, two of my favorite things, old barns and afternoon snoozes.
Then Ewe Pilz's card of a lovely tree and another barn, the two seemed to have grow together for some time.
Final card, so far, Dave Martiny's PG Nude. Brings back early school day memories, not the nude but the braid, just don't see many these days.

I hope you find my card interesting, paper was a little old, some fog and a little light leaked in the box from a worn corner.

I received :

OzPhoto's Troy and bubbles : I love the composition and lighting. Il also like the small print, which suits the image well, IMO.

DRPSilver's Cactus : interesting close-up of a cactus, the subject is very graphical.

Thanks !
