    Today I found Connecticut 154 from kc2edh in my mailbox. In the first second I thought it might be a double exposure, but then I realized - it is not. Nice subject and print. I like it. Thanks!

    Cheers

    I had the same thought as well! Thanks Ryan.

    I've also received hoffy's meerkat, which I think was a great capture, especially on medium format -- I doubt I would have been so lucky.

    Also, two colour cards have arrived: ozphoto's more muted Charles Bridge, Prague, and Crispin's more vibrant Icelandic church. I like them both -- thanks!

    I'm still looking forward to cards from astroclimb, Black Dog, gordrob, markrewald, rai, Rob Skeoch, Trond, and Wayne Frederick.

    rai's stunning postcard arrived today.

    I love the pinhole panoramic format, the subject, and especially the colours. Definitely my favorite card of this round, if not all of them!

    The real question is: how did you develop your film with hair dye?

    Oh yeah, definitely a jawdropper! And we just had a TV show on OPB about pinhole photography so my wife very excited to see a stunning example of pinhole photo. Hair-die, yeah? Can you share a recipe?

    I have received three more cards since my last comment.

    crispinuk - “Church in the north of Iceland” - beautiful, intense colour and the sky seems to go on forever
    hoffy-“Adelaide Zoo Meerkat” - an interesting look at an exotic (from my perspective) animal - nicely printed too
    Kc2edh -“Connecticut 154" - intriguing and full of depth

    I have now received cards from 19 people - with 5 to come.

    Thanks all for participating.

    Hi from Spain!!!!
    I like the postcards!!! all well and all motivate me and make me imagine someone's feelings when pressed a button when they consider fair.

    Thanks to everyone for making me feel good!

    The recipes:


    a) 2.50 g Sodium bisulfite
    60grs(aprox) hair dye (the component called color)
    50cc distilled water.

    b) 25 g potassium carbonate.
    Distilled water to 50cc.

    c) 10 g Potassium Bromide.
    Distilled water to 50cc.

    10a +10 b +10 c +10cc Rodinal +500 water.
    Develop for 20 minutes between 25 and 36 degrees.
    Fixer, whiten and re-set with the corresponding washes.

    You can also cross-development with c41 film:

    First Developer: paper developer 50%
    3 min exposure to light-up two faces
    Second Developer: Hairdye
    Wash, wash well
    Bleach to see the positive image or almost as you like ...
    fixer and wash.

    Please play with temperatures and hair dye concentration!!!

    The results are quite erratic,
    different films different results,
    different colors and / or no color,
    but ultimately allows me to create frames unrepeatable
    unique ... well I like to believe this.

    The pictures I have received like me, motivate me and make me imagine someone's feelings when pressed a button when they consider fair.

    Sorry for my bad english1

    Thanks to everyone!

    Comments on my most recent pile of received images from R26:

    Anikin – Frozen Trio in IR. A delightfully amusing trio of musicians rendered in a whimsical sculpture, beautifully framed and depicted . Their presence is highlighted by the skillful placement of background tones of the foliage through the use of the IR film.

    Crispin – Icelandic Church. A wonderful colour print(scan and commercially printed, I presume). The hues are most certainly enhanced by the use of the saturated palate that Velvia brings to a scene. The sky rendering provides a great flourish to an otherwise most satisfying image.

    Hoffy – Meerkat perching. A very effective use of shallow depth of field. The fur and gnarled tree branch are nice and sharp, while otherwise distracting background elements are shifted to a gentle blur. The placement of the sharp vs unsharp elements in the frame came together very nice as well.

    Kc2edh Connecticut 154. A great texture abstraction, with just a hint of what the object was to start with . Very pretty the way you have depicted the flaking paint on this old rail car. Nice micro contrast in the mid tones.

    Kraker – What are you looking at?. I like the way there is nice texture in so many differnet areas of the image. The clouds, the grass, the sheep’s coats. The wide angle works without any obvious distortions. Nice considering it is 15mm. perhaps the image is not printed to the edge of the frame?

    Labcoat- The birds at the Loch. I like the nice bands in this image- the gravel shore, the water, the tree line, the sky skewed across the frame. Then the old lady feeding the swimming and flying birds pull it all together.

    Rai Portra Panorama Pinhole. A great concept shot through and through: the wide angle form factor of the pinhole camera, the composition of the figure holding the picture in the frame and the images in the background, the film processing in PPD containing hair dye( a good treason I am pleased to let mine thin and go grey all on its own, thank you very much) and the very neat deckled edge of the matt the print is attached to. Bravo, my friend. You have pull off a success very well.

    Wayne Frederick – Caisson light house. I like how you have countered the inherent somewhat bland symmetry of the main element, the light house, with the capture moment placing figures on one side on the breakwater, and the other side on the upper balcony, and printing the image with the light house slightly off center. Whether by artful design, or pleasant coincidence the resulting image is very pleasing and not the pedestrian image it might have otherwise been. A nice range of tones in the print for what was otherwise a low contrast subject also.
    my real name, imagine that.
