I am slow to get off the starters blocks, but my prints now one, and will be addressed up tomorrow and all things being equal will be in the post Tuesday
I'll comment on the cards received after I have go mine in the post.

Since my last update I have received:
One card from round 20,
One card from round 23, and...
One card from round 24:
mooseontheloose, Sunrise over Bagan. Good to see you are still not out of HIE, and are still putting it to excellent use. A great picture, Rachelle, thanks. The paper is also quite nice, as is the stamp and the extra sticker.
I finally managed to print my cards for this round. Two different cards this time, two different negatives each printed on a different paper. The Ilford Postcards are dry and flat; the other half, printed on old Agfa Brovira fibre based paper has curled up upon drying. These will have to spend a few days under a big stack of heavy books, but I hope to be able to send all cards within a week.

I am the same. I have been a bit slow though off the mark for the updates as the cards have come in.
1. Trotkiller from round 20,
2. Brian Chambers from round 23
and from this round (so many hand written cards)
Mike Wilde - Another fabulous 3 pictures on old paper
Mooseontheloose - Sunrise over Bangan
Fotogys - The interior of the office. I went to another building "Kunsthaus Wien" Vienna several years ago and it was just like this picture, barely a right angle in the building!
Piu58 - Spectacular picture.
RST - Stehcafe. Such a robust photgraphic paper weight/density. I have several packets of the ADOX fine print, but I am yet to use it. This print shows me that I must.
Jim Rollinger - The Bean. Fantastic
markbarent - Concern. We have a DVD here at home that my 5 year old has almost worn the image off by watching so many times of the Durango and Silvertown railway, so when he saw this postcard He imediate words were this is the train off the TV!
Thanks everyone. All very special. Mine will go out at the end of the week.

After the *big wet* here in BKK, I'm finally back from spending the past few weeks in Northern Thailand, and the mailbox had some gems waiting for me:
Rachelle's Sunrise over Bagan - wonderful feeling and on one of my favourite films too!
Brian's Museum of Glass - I love architectural photography and I'd love to shoot this one myself. (Round 23)
Matt's Thimbles - after reading some of the reports here, I was expecting the sewing type! Great shot - I enjoy shooting details like this as well.
Mark's Concern - Steam trains - love them!
Darwin's Bird Tree - I can feel that bark just looking at this shot! Another favourite subject for me.
I'm off to the PO tomorrow - reliably informed it has dried out and no longer flooded! :)

Thanks everyone for the comments so far! I myself have a love-hate relationship with my card for this round, so I'll keep my comments to myself for now. ;)
A few more to comment on:
I love Eugene's 3D card -- very unique and the effect works well for me!
Fotogys' building interior is really interesting and at first didn't know which way was up! It works either way.
Matt King's "Thimbles" is also not what I was expecting but I like it a lot.
And finally, Ricus' Pampass Grass #8 arrived over the weekend, and it's been great to hold a lith print in my hand again -- I can't imagine doing it for a postcard exchange! But the treatment works well with the subject here, and I like the colour you've achieved as well.

Another two cards arrived today.
DRPSILVER - bird tree. I feel as if I am standing beside you looking at this tree.
MattKing - thimbles. Great borderless print. Just like a bought postcard was my wife's comment, oh and why don't your postcards look like this... Was her second comment.

Got Rachelle's Sunrise over Bagan, love it! A magical landscape, the buildings and balloons, the grain...
Sorry I am so slow this round, almost late so I must print something. Just going through a phase, not loving my negatives at the moment :( But I will pick something. My Polaroid idea didn't go so well so I shall make prints.
11-24-2011, 10:02 PM
My cards finally in the post. Look out everyone.
11-28-2011, 02:04 AM
Finally! The post office was dry and the mail seems to be back on track (never seen so many mailbags!!) and my cards have joined the next lot to be delivered. Apologies again for the delay. Looking forward to more arriving in my mailbox soon. :)

I received Hoffy's Goowa station yesterday. I like it, and the way the steam mixes with the clouds is very cool ! Thanks !
On my side, I finally got back to the darkroom for some printing (it took me ages to develop the films from the Merry Go Round, and now I have 110 films to print...) and printed my cards. They are all written, labeled, and I just need the time to go to the post office to set them free.
I printed 4 different negatives this time, all coming from a "side project" to the "Merry Go Round" and all shot with my EOS3 with EF 85/1.8 on HP5.

A little late put I'm done, done and done. Cards printed, addresses on and now in the care of the Post Office. So far I've received about 1/3 of my cards, as always great variety and interesting views from around the world. Great work by all.
Now I just need to get the snow chains on the tractor!

I got Eugene's 3D card a while ago. Very cool! My daughter likes 3D so she got a kick out of it.
And Ricus' Pampass Grass. Lovely tones and textures.
And I am late, sorry. Almost chosen a negative... Will print this weekend and ship next week.

TJ's Petronas Towers arrived yesterday - looking forward to seeing these myself one day.
12-02-2011, 02:57 AM
My cards are labelled, addressed and fitted with stamps, in other words: ready to be sent.
The fibre based cards however are still curling a bit, so I'll leave them until tonight or tomorrow to be sure that the labels don't peel off as a result of the curl. If all seems OK, I will post them this weekend.
12-02-2011, 08:35 AM
My cards are now on their way to their "targets"...

Two cards arrived this week.
The card from tj01 of the Petronas Towers offers a somewhat mystical view if buildings I have only read about when they were being built.
The other card came from Hoffy. I like the sense of wonder in the facial expression of your daughter. She must have been really excited to be on the train.
Thanks for all the wonderful work I have received this round.:)

Unfortunately I will be late this round. I hope that I'll get my cards out within the next two weeks, though. I'm really sorry about the delay.
I would like to thank everyone who had me on their list for the fantastic cards I have received so far. This might be one of my favorite rounds.
