    Yesterday I received my first card of this rount. It is Rüdigers (rst) beautiful shot of a soccer artist at Montmartre, Paris. Very fine compose, good use of matte paper, real sharp. Dankeschön!

    I received 2 wonderful cards already so early into the round:

    • Soccer over Paris by Rüdiger: Amazing image. I love the composition and the amazig detail in this image. Even the highrises in the background are still crisp and sharp. It gives an interesting contrast to see this 'playful performance' infron of this concrete and cement jungle, which looks dull, static and sad. Very well done.
    • University building in Leipzig by Uwe P.: I particularly like the point of view that was chosen here. To me it seems like the statue is looking at the buildingand putting old and new into perspective, but also a little like the statue is watching carefully at the building not sure if it likes what it sees. The print is of course marvellous. Very well done and great play between the foreground statue and the building in the background.

    Thanks for the kind comment. The intention with the background being pretty sharp too was to show where the action took place: in Paris - on the print Centre Pompidou is easily detectable, also the Pantheon and (a bit more difficult) Notre Dame. So the subject got some context. But honestly, I was a bit torn which action I found more interesting, the artist or the crowd watching/photographing him - me included

    Cheers

    Dear Rüdiger and Rince,

    thank you for your comments.

    > like the statue is looking at the building and putting old and new into perspective, but also a little like the statue is watching carefully at the building not sure if it likes what it sees.

    That is exactely what I tried to say with that image. It is phantastic how you catched it in a few words.

    Hi Uwe,

    there something else I noticed with your card and maybe this is caused by the subjet - well there is nothing else which could be the cause - your card is 5x7 but it somehow looks bigger than that. When I grabbed it out of my mailbox the very first impression was (without looking closely to the image) - wow that is the biggest postcard I ever received. Even if I place it next to other 5x7 cards it looks bigger.

    Cheers

    25 postcards are on their way to new homes! Looking forward to my mailbox being fed something more exciting than bills. . . .

    My cards are in the hands of Canada Post (the Canadian addresses) and the US Postal Services (US and International addresses).

    Hope you like "Legs"

    That was fast. The first two cards arrived a few days ago. Sehr pünktlich, Uwe und Rüdiger.

    Piu58 was the very first this round. The building indeed looks like a slightly opened book. Love the contrast of the building and the statue. Contrast in shape, in size, and.. well, in contrast. I agree with Rüdiger that the print looks larger than 5x7. Very nice. I also like the Trockenstempel. Actually, now... I want one too.
    rst, you are not saving the Adox Fineprint Classic for the future, I see, you just use it (and why not, indeed). Seems like quite a show, and quite a crowd too. A completely different view of Paris.

    Danke. This round is off to a good start!
