    I just received MikeG's today as well, I love the atmosphere and the chair at the end of the dock.


    I got 36/38 postcards, counting Mike's.

    Today I received two more wonderful cards.
    First color developing attempt from Bob F. I find it very interesting and full of detail. Guy working on the rigging is well placed.
    Matthijs Noome Really nice presentation. I like the post card glued (and did not separate in transit like some before) on black photo paper. Very good night shot. Wow. So far I have received 36 cards of 37 send. Not bad.
    I hope the #13 is as good as #12 was.

    Since my last post in this thread, I've received four more cards.

    Bob F. sent me the second colour print I got this round. A very nice close-up of the rigging of an old ship, the slight colour cast fits the image very well.

    I really like blackmelas' print be cause of the contrast between the white robes and the dark beards and hats. Very nicely printed. Very interesting story too!

    Valerie got me a very nice close-up of a spider web with dew on the silk. Did you use a Rolleinar close-up lens for the shot?

    mikeg sent an atmospheric shot from Norway, the chair on the pier really makes the shot. Lovely tonality too.

    So far I've received 28 out of 30 cards.

    What a fantastic experience! I sent 38 postcards and have received 31 so far. I've done a terrible job of documenting my impressions, however; in the past month I have quit my job, sung ~3 weeks of Christmas concerts and Messiah performances, run off to Vermont in the middle of holiday travel to marry my now-civil partner, and we are now in the process of relocating to London! Most likely I will miss Round 13 but will rejoin as soon as we are settled, have a real address, etc.

    Received:

    erikg: Fort Plain NY - Friedlander-esque
    gordrob: Rustic Barn - great contrasts
    geoff: shipyard detail - wonderful lines, a tangled mess! I love the C330
    kingjon: Tumon Bay in Guam - fantastic view
    valerie: kitchen detail - pleasing arrangement here, perhaps I'll cook something!
    dianna m: young ballerina - lovely sense of motion, delicate tones
    tim walls: glow in the dark - cool graphic!
    birger a: mirrors in Reichstag - wonderful repetition, mysterious dark figure in the middle
    don grindstaff: lion - great composition and detail
    bdial: "Private" - I am curious what is behind the door! love the decayed textures
    adamkap: The Cyclone - I like the contrast of the busy structure above and the calm street below
    mattking: Driftwood - wonderful range of tones and detail in the wood
    buster6x6: Todd's gas can - We are drawn to similar subjects; I love sorting through junk piles looking for great photos
    jonking: Mission San Jose - beautiful scene, great shadow detail
    rudiger: Summer is over - fine detail in the leaf; curiously black, almost resembles a bat!
    mark mombarg: Beijing fish market, Oct 2007 - great composition
    pepmiro: Catalonian village - beautiful, like an old movie still
    allen friday: Bronze casting - great environmental portrait of a scene most folks don't get to witness firsthand
    mark fisher: All good pigs go to heaven - the pig is posing! cute and sad; no name, just a price per lb.
    doug smith: bridge diptych - film noir! love the mysterious mood
    gmessarit: Tree in Olympia - great use of selective focus, that tree trunk is rather sexy
    stan160: Plastic crabs - they are lined up and marching, it seems! fun
    fm2n: Chinatown - wonderful slice of street life here, great contrast
    klinger: Ring of Brodgar - wow, would have missed the person standing there were it not for the hands. nice to see a sense of scale. great scene!
    rwyoung: Witch Doctor - aaah! I will go buy more film right away!
    tim gray: Wheelie - fun capture and nicely composed
    blackdog: La Baillyerie Mirror - an apparition, perhaps
    mick fagan: high key portrait - well done! I wouldn't mess with her
    mike wilde: Toronto skyline - beautiful and subtle colors

    gr82bart: Cyanotype - great treatment, looks beautifully aged

    Hi Randyman
    It looks like my card never arrived at your address, although I'm sure I sent one. If you pm me with a new address, I'll send another one.

    Latest batch of postcards:
    • Nice candid of a bronze casting pour at a smelter from Allen
    • Katherine's postcard is an intriguing perspective of urban trees
    • MikeG sent a fantastic image of a pier jettisoning into a gorgeous scene
    • I really love the blue toned postcard from Andorra
    • Divine skateboarding was captured by PeteH
    • Mark captured a line of wedding dresses in Beijing
    • I actually forgot that Jake sent his postcard together with another print from another print exchange
    • Bob F printed his own colour postcards of folks working on a sailing barge
    • And finally James beautifully captured Orthodox Greek Priests during a festival

    This brings my total to 31 out of 38. Awesome, keep them coming - we're at the home stretch.

    That's right Art!

    Yours and randyman's is on the way! Once again I apologize for their lateness.

    For those who are keeping statistics on this round I have received 19 of 20 for Pound #12. That is a 95% "receive rate". I hope all rounds are as good.

    Regards,
    Darwin
