Today I received two terrific liths from akaa -- sailing yachts in the harbour and a fishing trawler just off the pier. Fantastic contrast and really juicy grain along with great hues in the sky. Love them, AW!

Alas, no note, but I can see that it is Kodak paper. Maybe you'd share a bit more, and maybe say where these were taken?

Thanks very much!

I apologize David, The envelopes got sealed before I was able to put in the note I had written. It is some old Kodak paper, and I used the Moersh easylith kit @ 1:30. Both of those were taken early last year at the harbor in Monterey, CA.

I was having trouble getting the sky to come in, and it didn't seem to matter how much exposure I gave it. I ended up souping it until I liked the boat and dock, then pulling it half way out and letting the horizon and sky sit a little longer.

Ghostcount, your lith of the rock formation arrived yesterday. The grittiness lith can provide is great for stuff like this. I've not used Foma 123 - is the apricot in the highlights the colour of the paper, or is it lith induced?

sly, the color is lith induced. I used Ultrafinonline's A+B developer and was surprised it worked on 123. I'm glad it arrived there safely - I just hope Joy and Andrey gets theirs also.

A beautiful print from Rudiger.The sky and its reflection are great.Have you received the print I sent you Rudiger.

Have you received the print I sent you Rudiger.
No, not yet. I do not know what may have happened, you sent your prints out much earlier and it should not take that long. But we have to be patient. Usually a print sent within Germany takes one or two days to arrive. But I also have an example where it took three weeks.

Today I recieved Peter's (joy) lovely lith print. The styrofoam backing didn't survive the travel from Russia. Luckily only one corner of the print is creased.

The colours of this lith are gorgeous. From gray and gritty in the foreground to lovely pink and peach in the sky. The colurs complement the scene perfectly.

I'm very impressed that you brew your own developer Peter!

Paul_c5x4's "Life is a Merry-go-Round" finally made it across the pond and to my mailbox. Thanks very much Paul, what a cool print. I really like the mood...feeling...story...whatever you want to call it. It's unfortunate that paper is no longer available.

All prints sent and received now. Thanks everyone. And a big thanks to Chris for organizing.

Was beginning to think my prints had got lost in the post. As soon as Tony has received his, I'll post a scan in the gallery.

I received Joy's (Peter) print today. It's wonderful and like Lilly's comment, the colors are fantastic. I'm also impress with a home brewed lith developer. The foam survived the transit.

Thank you so much!

Hey, just received the beautiful print from Mike. Very graphical, I like it very much. What a great exchange!

Hi Paul - My apologies. I received your print a few weeks ago and should have acknowledged this. Been a bit busy and pre-occupied lately with birth of a grandchild a week ago.
I liked the photo and the slightly 19thC feel it had with the attendant's dress and also the rhythmic swirl of the blurred horses. Also the paper finish and tone was quite distinctive. Something very different from each of my group. Thanks again.

Didn't know if there was a sub-group for exchange prints within the gallery, so I uploaded a scan to the standard gallery (http://www.apug.org/gallery1/showimage.php?i=58499) last weekend.

Hoo-ray!!! it finally made it,that's good.Ruediger, it is graphical,but its one of the first I did.Next time I'll try for a much smoother approach.Thanks for the comment.

Mike, the way you did your print is perfect for that subject. I like it a lot. You can try for a smoother approach, but I doubt that you can make it any better than it is now.

Thanks again and cheers

Following Paul's lead I posted a scan of my spare print in my gallery. My partners got the best versions! Colour is close but not a perfect match for the real thing.

Hi, Chris:

Akaa and I are still looking forward to Jerevan's contribution. He announced that he hit a reef, but hopefully he'll get unstuck soon...
