    My cards made it out the day before yesterday - at last! Sorry for this late posting - don't quite know what happened. Just busy times I guess )

    Mine went out yesterday - finally!

    Comments on the excellent cards I have received will follow soon.

    Thanks for your patience.

    A few more cards made my way:

    "Who cleaned the beach for Ansel" by Bob Slaughter. Just beautiful textures of water. That buoy looks like a crayon. It adds some wonderful point of interest to the photo.

    "Building and Interocitor" by Varyav. Great macro with a lot of visual interest. One of those photos that you can spend a lot of time studying. Great idea and execution!

    "Peace fountain" by JimO. Great composition! The copper toning adds a nice antique feel to the shot.

    "Cascade, 4098" by Ryan. Looks like a fun place to exercise. I agree, it beats indoor gym any time! I like it how you managed to get great detail in both sky and the foreground.

    "Snake Dance" by mjs. Superb sharpness and clarity! And of course, a very interesting subject. That reminds me, it's been ages since we've been to a pow wow. If I don't forget, we'll go this summer!

    "Clouds, Germany 1993" by Jaime Torres / Patrick Olsen. Neat, almost abstract shot of golden clouds. And the presentation is what really makes this card work. Beautiful!

    "Connecticut River Bridge" by Brian. We've got a very similar bridge here in Portland, so my first thought was - "is it from somebody from Oregon?" Great shot! By the way, I went to college in CT, so this photo immediately reminded me of my favorite park in CT - Gilette Castle. Which is incidentally also located on the CT river. Thank you!

    "Turn of the Screw" By Matt King. Ok, Matt, you've got me here. It is a great abstract, but really, what am I looking at? There's got to be a great story behind it! Your description really piqued my interest...

    And my absolute favorite from this round is a portrait by Vyshemirsky. Just wow! Amazing, almost 3D portrait in golden light. Superb is an understatement!

    It is a great, big, old brass ship's propeller (aka "screw"), without the cap (??) that goes on the centre core.

    Mine finally sent this week!

    I sent out two different prints this round, and it sounds like they are starting to reach their destinations. I've received 14 nice cards thus far, and will offer details in my next post.

    Thanks to all who have sent!

    Aha! That makes sense now. Very cool!

    Excuse!

    oh no - I just realized that I somehow mixed the addresses from round 30 an 31 - I am very sorry! So some of you got postcards they did not expect to... and some did not get any from me.
    I knew my life was kind of chaotic , but this is proof! I will print the cards again and send them as fast as possible!
    What a mess!

    I have received more than a few cards and am thankful. I am at a friend's place so I have limited time and cannot review them here and now.

    I hope to find a place to print in the next couple weeks. New place, second job taken, enlarger is on the blink and no internet but for quick hits like this. Will advise once sent.
    Thank you.
