All prints rec'd. Prints will be dropped off at the postoffice posting box tomorrow, and Rob W of Canada will see his prints posted Monday.

Thanks to Shane B and Marc M for offering an extra print to me.

Outstanding images from everyone. I will wait a few days before I comment so everyone gets a chance to the prints for themselves.

Well done to everyone! That is an awesome effort. One week out is a win!

Looking forward to my care package!

I agree with hoffy. One week late for the two groups is a great effort.

Thanks to Andy for cracking the whip.

No worries. If we can keep this sort of timing moving forward, that will be the real achievement.

nice effort, have fun sorting prints, I find a large table or floor works well, probably easier than it was for me with only 6-7 people in each group

Thanks for the advice Tim. I was thinking when sorting prints how on earth did you manage with two groups of ten. I did have a big table, and the rest of the family was out. At the end I am sure I got it all sorted, no doubles, no one missed.

All packages in the post except for Rob W as I was enjoying work so much :laugh:, that I missed the post office. Will do tomorrow.

Thankfully mine turned up yesterday because the postie left them on top on the letterbox, today they just would of been a sodden mess.

Mine turned up yesterday, which cheered me up no end because a few hours earlier my beautiful Fuji 6x8 rangefinder was stolen - whilst I had it at work!!! So thanks Andy and everyone for turning a crap day into a less crap day!!!

I'll write up some comments in due course...

Marc!

I just realised mine are hopefully waiting for me in my post office box. I think I'll wait for the rain to slow down a bit before I venture out to check.

Mine came today. Looks like Aust Post forgot to put there kid gloves on, as the corners are a bit bent, but meh, such is life.

Anyhow......interesting to see a bit of colour in my packet. That came as a suprise!

BTW, Marc, I hope you can find out what happened to your camera. That has got to suck.

Cheers

I'm so sorry to hear that, Marc. That really is a beautiful camera, one of the nicest photographic items I have ever seen. Not nice that it was stolen at work - that is sad. Hopefully it could still turn up.

My prints were safe and dry at the post office. Good work everybody. I just seem to be missing an info sheet from Alex.

Thanks again for organising, Andy.

Now this explains why I had one of these sheets left over. If this is the only mistake I have not too badly at all. I will scan and post to you this evening.

Should have thought about this a bit more before I posted. If you want the original Kevin I will need your address again, that also goes for your electronic one as well as you don't have it on APUG.:confused:

Hi Andy, just a scan will be fine, thanks. I'll pm my email addy.

Thanks.

Thanks for your kind words Hoffy & Kevin - I am still a bit depressed about that camera...!

The prints, on the other hand... Here's a few comments for my group:

1. "The Uralla Mainline" - Tomalophicon - Well, I'm a sucker for fibre print tone, fog and railway photos, so this print just has all the essential ingredients for me. Love it.
2. "Untitled snowy Canadian photo" - Bob Walberg - Skillful printing that you can still see tone in the lightest bits of snow - and the dense, leafless branch detail of the birch trees is really nicely captured. I want to visit there... perhaps in summer though.
3. "Echo's Witness Arthouse 2010" - Timk - I remember the Arthouse... My guitar amp used to buzz during gigs as the trams went by... I am impressed with the facial detail, and the way it looms out of absolute black - that could almost be a crop in itself!!
4. "Untitled" - Michael W - Ralph Lambrecht put me onto this great German photographer who makes infrared photos of Castles (with a Linhof 617), and that's got me a bit keen on infrared lately. This picture is so otherworldly - I like how the foliage tonally dominates the picture in such a strange way.
5. "Eagle - Modern Ambrotype" - Andrew K - I find it hard to "love" inkjet prints, but I would love to see an actual ambrotype of this picture - all the ones you see in "View Camera" magazine seem to be of circus folk and frontier types (surely an exaggeration!), so it's a refreshing composition in this style.
6. "Holga pic" - Andrew K - How have you made this? Using a Holga, or a DSLR as in the description? Again, as an inkjet print, I reckon it suffers (for me) in being in a pile of darkroom prints that the tone and texture of the paper can be compared against. That said, I would like to see the negative as a darkroom print!
7. "Restored Couta Boat" - SMBooth - Timeless, clean and graphic image! The boat and the water are so pictorially clean, it's almost like a computer render. But it's not and thus means you're just jolly clever.

Another great exchange everybody - looking forward to round #4...

Marc!
