I've been everywhere ooooohhh yeaahhhh still I'm standing tall.
Double Feature/Ingo and Rudiger-you crazy ass Germans man. Ich liebe die Deutsche richtung der stimmung
Moose Calf by LingJon-lovely subtle tones and vvg for first serious printing attempt.
Billilla House by Mick Fagan-like the contrast between the darker toned foliage and the lighter toned building. The lighting gives the whole image a slightly surreal quality.
Boat Repair by Mark_S-reminds me of those 19th/early 20th century survey photos, with that pale sky and tonality.The windows seem like eyes looking out from the past.
"He took to writing poetry and visiting the elves: and though many shook their heads and touched their foreheads and said 'Poor old Baggins!' and though few believed any of his tales, he remained very happy till the end of his days, and those were extraordinarily long "- JRR Tolkien, ' The Hobbit '.
I'm new at this so I promise to be more informative next time around. That's a 90mm Super Angulon on a Zone VI 4x5, using FP4+ and 510-Pyro 1:500 for 50 minutes with 30 seconds initial agitation and four inversions at 12.5, 25 and 37.5 minutes. The paper developer is Zone VI, 1:3 for 2 minutes. The print was made with split grade filtration.
Thanks Michael With the original in my hand it make it much easier to see how different developers or toners affect the print. It is a learning process.
Gordon, your neighbours will certainly get an interesting array of personalised cards from around the world, they really are lucky neighbours.
As you have my card, I will not send another.
Mick - yours was the first to get here - it seems that the mail moves quite quickly between the north & south hemispheres. It is a beautifully printed postcard and I love the contrast.
To the rest of the group - please don't mail a second card - I'll let you know when they come in. The postman should pick up on where the cards are destined as more start to come in. The postal code is correct so that should direct them here as well.
