    Thanks Greg,

    unfortunately it is not my own lens. So now I know that my cards might have gone by airmail, I forgot to tell this to the lady at the post office and without airmail they may take four weeks to go over the ocean.

    So you were in Berlin some time, so then I understand where you got all the pieces of the still you sent along to me

    Hey, I got 8 cards so far and I like them all without wanting to judge which I like best. Maybe the most interesting is the one sent by Art (gr82bart) because it is so different from all the other cards and done using a process which I never heard about.

    So maybe Art, please correct me if I am wrong, with your slide printer you copied a Kodachrome 64 35mm slide to a Polaroid and then transferred this to the paper? Can you do this with all polaroid films?

    Anyway, this is so much fun, Nige, count me in for the next round.

    -- Ruediger

    Hi Ruediger,

    Thank you for the kind words. I try to be different. Although I thought Polaroid Transfer is quite a common and well known process. Check out these websites for more information on the process:
    http://www.polaroid.com/global/movie...=1161522365497
    http://www.alternativephotography.co...transfers.html

    So maybe Art, please correct me if I am wrong, with your slide printer you copied a Kodachrome 64 35mm slide to a Polaroid and then transferred this to the paper?
    Yes, that is what I did.

    Can you do this with all polaroid films?
    I have used this process using only 669 and 59 films. According to someone, who's name I can't remember right now, any of the films ending in "9" can be used.

    Regards, Art.

    Hello All,

    A number of very nice 'cards have just arrived.

    i. A nice still life from hal9000, simple everyday objects seen as a special thing

    ii. Great abstract from Art, tremendous skill and a fantastic result thanks.

    iii. Thanks Donald for the architectural subject. I've had a go at sepia but yours is much more subdued, really nice

    iv. Very emotive still life from Buster 6x6, Captured the officer class perfectly.

    v. Your busker is nice too, thanks Mick

    vi. Mark's Kodobromide conjures up old gangster films, I enjoyed this one. Thank you.

    vii And last but not least the big tower another interesting piece of architecture. Thanks whoever you are.

    Regards Daniel

    that's it I've finally got all my cards posted. Postcards to UK addresses were sent on Saturday, whilst cards to the rest of the world were sent today when the Post Office was open.

    thanks to everyone for the cracking cards received so far,


    Brian

    Daniel: The tower was mine - forgot to sign some of them :P

    Greg: Thanks for the kind words. I used FP4+ and Rodinal 1:100. The light was kind of flat so I used the time listed on the Dev Chart rather than altering it for contrast. This was printed with a #3 filter so I should have boosted the contrast a bit in development...

    Printed, labelled, mailing tomorrow

    I've gotten all postcards printed, labelled and heading for the post office tomorrow am.
    I printed 3 different images. After awhile I post them on the gallery, but I don't want to "spoil" the surprises yet
    I've received 6 great images so far can't wait for the rest.
    Regards,
    Jim Bradley
