Thank you for the recipe. I'll have to try it one day. Oh, and your English is fine. Much better than my Spanish for sure!

Thanks all for participating.

Round 26 came to an end and I have to say THANK YOU all for having me and being part of this truly amazing experience.
I have received a boat load of cards since y last update. In no particular order:
- Conneticut 154 by Ryan : Amazing texture and I really like the flows of the lines.
- Church in north of Iceland by Crispin: Wonderful light and color in this image. I love the serenity this radiates to me.
- Between silence and light by Jake W. :Very interesting and intriguing image. Amazing detail in the droplets. I love how my mind starts spinning stories around this one ...
- Frozen Trio by Eugene A.: IR film never fails to amaze me. Works really well with this image
- Simon Fraser Univ. Pool by bluejah2: Amazing piece of architectural photography. I so love the perfect water reflection and how this image is composed. One of my favorites of this round.
- Rocks are pebbles by bluejay: Oh my, this is truly amazing! I don't know how many times I watched in wonder and turned that card clockwise ...
- Self portrait at the Capitol by Johannes: I love how this image really draws me in and makes me be there instead of just looking at an image.
- People and structures by Raimundo C.:What an incredible piece of art. I love everything about this image. The format, the colors and the subject matter. I would love to learn more about the technique you used for this image.
- Charles Bridge , Prague: This is a great view and I can almost feel the cold air on this winter morning. Looks very peaceful.
- Lake Ontario, Church of Silver Ball and Toronto Skyline by Mike W. : All three images are great, but I have to say I like the Lake Ontario image the most. It is maybe not the most happy of images, but I love how the paper you chose seems to compliment the scene so well.
Again thank you everyone for making this round so very special. Not only is it great to receive some mail that is not a bill, but to feel so unbelievably inspired to take better pictures and learn how to make better prints.
So glad the wait is over and round 27 started
There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.

A couple more cards arrived recently:
card # 16 - Charles Bridge, Prague from OZPHOTO
Panoramic Cityscape in colour. Very picturesque.
card # 17 - Connecticut 154 from Ryan KC2EDH
A surreal looking detail of peeling paint on a railway carriage, almost looks as if it is growing.
Cachting up on cards received; three more arrived over the past few weeks:
Kc2edh, Connecticut 154. Alas, not an old barrel of whisk(e)y (which was my first association upon seeing this card). Lovely detail, great capture.
Wayne Frederick, Spring Point lighthouse. Nice shot, and thank you for the history lesson.
rai, people and structures. Wow. Wow, this is amazing. Absolutely stunning photo and processing. This one will be "on display" in the living room long after this round ends. Lovely.

Sorry I'm so late with this round.
I printed a bunch tonight but don't have the whole group ready yet.
Good to hear from you Rob, sadly you missed round 27 but I hope you'll join us again in the new year!
Since my last update I've received three cards from this round.
Wayne Frederich's Spring Point Lighthouse.
OZPHOTO's Charles Bridge panorama.
Rai's People and Structures.
All great images but I must say Rai's is outstanding. Images like this are what makes the postcard exchange so special for me. I'd never have a chance to see and handle such a variety of styles and methods locally.
I got a late card from this round, Rob Skeoch's rodeo cowbows. Very fine shot, printet on baryta paper. Thank you.
