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.
Looking is a gift, but seeing is power.
I have received 34 and sent 37. An excellent round!
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.
Yes. Its one of my favorite toys!

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.
