My prints are made, I need to flatten them and hopefully can send them within the next 2 or 3 days. In the meantime, I received a print from Mike Wilde, a photo of a gigantic ship, together with a looong explanation with I enjoyed reading a lot. Thank you so much, Mike.

Two prints ready for posting way out west. Haven't heard from Joe O'Brien yet so will have to put one on ice until I do.

I have received your print today. It's absolutely beautiful. On a "spouse" scale it's absolute success. My wife asked me to frame it and hang it in our guest bathroom. I rarely get such a privilege with my prints :D

This sounds right up my alley - you should let me know if/when you do a second Small Print exchange.

Praise indeed - Does that now mean I can claim my work is now "hanging in private collections in the USA" ? :)

[side note] Last print is in the mail to Joe. Hope it arrives as quickly.

Unquestionably! "Hanging in private collections in the USA along with works of other distinguished photographers" Let's not divulge what distinguished means in this case :laugh:

My prints are finally in the mail. I printed them weeks ago, just could never find the time to take them to the post office.

"No Fishing" arrived here safe and sound. Brings back memories of a trip to the hilly bits in California a few years back with all the snow.

Hello all,

as for the postcard exchange, I have to apologize for being late in sending my prints, and for my lazyness on commenting the prints I received...

In the past weeks, I received :

A very nice close up of chairs by Rüdiger. The composition is very nice, and so is the print.

Marius Hauge's skyscape. Very dark print, which put all the interest on the sun (moon ?) and the clouds around it, and makes me try to guess what the landscpae looks like... Well done !

TJ's three prints.
The two butterflies on a wall paper show very nice textures.
The portrait of Justin at 2 is absolutely lovely. The eye contact is very strong, and the print very well done.
The third one os a view of a beach and rocks, with very transparent water. Lots of details and textures, which I like a lot !

Thanks to you three.

I think I have decided what negatives I'll print, and hope I'll be able to print them this week.

Cheers !

I have finally got all my prints done and into the hands of Canada Post.

Sorry to all in my group (Group 1) for the delay.

I note that each of my fellow group members have posted indicating that their prints are done. I received a print from Mike - thanks Mike for the excellent print and detailed description - as of yet I haven't received prints yet from Sandra, Heiko or Mick.

Should I be worried?

Just a note that the prints I recv'd from anikin and paul_c5x4 were gorgeous
and well printed. I've asked for Joe O'Brien's mail without response, but his post
suggested he wouldn't be able to print til 'late august' anyway - looking forward to
that exchange as well. For my part, this has been great, an opportunity to make and
share some homemade prints, thanks everyone for the participation, I'm in for the next!

Hello to everyone in my group! The prints I have received have been absolutely incredible Paul_c5x4 and anikin. dasBlute, I'm very sorry I missed you message asking for my mailing address, I've just PM'd it to you. Hopefully My prints will be out in the mail soon, Things were a bit more crazy when I returned to college then I had expected. Renovations that should have been done to the art building are still underway so my professor was a bit behind schedule getting in our order for toners and some other chemicals. Hopefully they should arrive soon. Again, I am extremely sorry for the delay in getting my prints out to you guys.

Laurent,
Glad it arrived safely.

Thanks also to Rüdiger, I love that print and how the 'color' of the print closely matches the rattan.

Thanks
TJ

I recieved a very nice print from Matt King. Nice tone, wonderfully sharp. Good perspective correction, so that the supporting piles do not converge to the sky. Quite the spot to fish from.

My son was asking about what the pilings were for. We live inland where there are no tides, so I explained how the deck floated guided by the piles. Looks like the dock is built to accomodate quite a tide and storm surge.

The overmat was very nice. I would recommend you fiddle with the blade depth on your angle cutter, or amount of overcut needed if you are angle cutting freehand thought.
The effect could be from either. The overcut corners tended to pull my eye a bit too much. Mat cutting is a bit of a skill that takes time to build, and you mentioned that cutting your own mats is new to you.

Thanks Mike.

No perspective correction used - in this case I was able to ensure that the verticals didn't converge by merely using the bubble levels on my tripod. It helps that the ramp out to the float made it possible to set up at near half-height of the pilings.

The dock is at an end of what used to be one of two main channels of the Fraser River, but is now just a fairly long arm of the river that no longer connects to the other main channel at that end. It does raise and lower with ocean tides, but not nearly as much as the pilings would indicate.

The main use of the dock is as a launching place for multi-person rowing skulls. A number of competitive rowers use this waterway as a practice facility. I've wondered if the high pilings are there because the bottom is soft, and because it may be necessary to "adjust" their height over time.

And yes, I'm new to this mat cutting business, so my corners are inconsistent at present - I'm learning as I go though, so hopefully anyone else getting matted prints from me in the future will see little or no overcut.
