    Postcard Exchange #27 - to Jacco KRAKER

    Hi Jacco
    We had signed up for the max for Postcard exchange #27, but when I checked my address list against the list on the APUG website, I noticed you were not on it, so I got your address from the last round and sent you our postcards! I may have misunderstood the rules, but not to worry, you are not in our debt.

    > signed up for the max ... address from the last round

    Even if you signed in for the max that does not mean that you have to send a card to everybody. Because some of us (me!) don't sign auf for the max it does not come out even this way.

    As Uwe said, we can run out of pairs before the "MAX" or even some of the higher numbers a met. However, I don't believe there is any "rule" that says you can't send extra cards, so feel free. BTW your cards have arrived safely on the east coast!

    Re: Postcard Exchange #27 Comments and Feedback

    Here are the most recent cards I received. Some of them I got back around Christmas but I've been moving house and my internet connection is frustratingly bad so I've not been in the mood to post on APUG. Anyway I'm back now...

    MooseOnTheLoose - lovely christmas-y pic. Nice grain and soft focussed parts. Makes me want to try some Delta 3200.

    Music in The Street - from Houston (the name smudged off in the rain). Nice skewed angle (don't see enough of this imo) which adds dynamism to this photo - very suitable for the subject.

    From South Bend USA - label fell off this one I think. No details on card.
    Very curious picture. Strange shaped display dummies. My eye keeps being drawn to the shrivelled up tights in the background.

    James O'Gara - Beer Can Building
    Sharp and contrasty cityscape. Love the clarity.

    Oxleyroad - Old New Windmill
    Atmospheric country/rustic scene taken with a classic camera on Shanghai GP3 (which I am planning to try). The out of focus trees in the background give the photo a dreamlike feel abd contrast well with the windmill in the foreground.

    DRPSilver - Happiness...
    Very solid, clear print. Love the message. I keep it next to my monitor as a little pick-me-up. Reminds me of an Atget storefront shot. Wonder how it would have looked without the polariser - not as clear obviously but I do like reflection in a photo (kind of 2 images for the price of one).

    Raimundo Civera - a colour pinhole photo. Wide angle Paris hisorical building. Crazy colours (looks a bit lithy) but effective.

    Just to update you all - I'll be back home in BKK on the 28th, so will comment on any cards I've received since December 24 when I get back. Looking forward to seeing what the postman has delivered - so much better than bills!

    Sorry for the long delay of these R27 comments. I got too side tracked fixing up boy scout gear to get it ready for the spring over the Christmas holidays, and these cards did not get noticed until I went to file away extra prints of my R28 images.

    Bluejeh Judy – Quite the mystical feeling this image leaves me with. Like a scene in my mind out of the Hobbit sort of. The receding path is quite nice. The day this was shot looks rather overcast, and that is likely what makes the path pop. It would be neat to see the contrast of where your eye is pulled at this scene on a sunny day.

    Bluejeh2 Ed, soothing water in the foreground, and the leaning trunk of the tree channels the spirit of some primordial indigenous canoe of the past to me . Nice micro tonality in the texture of the tree bark, an muted representation of the leaves. A nice low key image.

    Lorifrommontana- Yellowstone – The mountains in the background in this image have an almost painterly feel, where some great being has shaped them with some giant brush. I like the way the image is framed to make the near, mid-ground and background sit as near thirds. I could have done with a bit more pop in the print, that a higher contrast filter might have produced.

    Rai – Well I saw Les Mis and I really enjoy the feeling that your image reinforces. It takes away some of the pain of listening to Russell Crowe ‘sing’(and I use that word very loosely here) his role in that movie.
    my real name, imagine that.

    Two more cards have come in since my last comment.

    Black Dog - “The photograph Announces...” - A nice, subtle colour print with a postcard backing - excellent use of “negative space”

    Rai - “National Palace des Invalides, Paris” - Another colour print! This one though uses colour for special effect in a pinhole image of a building with character

    Cards from 21 received, with just 3 (hoffy, Kav, Kc2edh) to come.

    Thanks everyone.

    And another card received:

    hoffy - "Edison Cylinder Recordings" - Interesting and printed in a way that suits the subject perfectly - well worth waiting for.

    22 received, with just 2 (Kav, Kc2edh) to come.

    Thanks everyone.

    Hey, good to see that it has made it around to the other side of the world! I was starting to worry!

    Arrived in BKK late last night, to a cornucopia of postcards from rounds 25, 27 & 28!! For round 27 I received:

    Black Dog
    - “The photograph Announces...” - An interesting effect, that keeps me wanting to know more about what the images are.
    Rai - “National Palace des Invalides, Paris” - Love the colour effect on this image. It suits the subject beautifully.
    Lori's - "Yellowstone Park" - one of the places on my bucket list for next time I'm in the US. Nice leading lines from the sand to the mountains behind.
    Bluejeh - "Path through Trees" - the trees as a canopy over the path, add an air of mystery to the image. "Where am I, and where does that lead?"
    Bluejeh2 - "Creek near Cultus Lake BC" - I love images like this, and the blur on the water makes the spot feel even more serene. (Your paper choice has me thinking of grabbing some to try, as it reminds me of paper from the 50s.)

    Only 4 outstanding from yet another super round: afrank, hoffy, Kav & Kc2edh
