Great Cyanotype Anke, very subtle, to answer your enquiry the overpass on my image is a pedestrian overpass on the great western highway, the main western highway out of Sydney. It is about 80 kms out of Sydney and 1,000 metres in altitude so we often have lovely dense mists. Living in a world heritage listed area provides some wonderful photo opportunities.

A cyanotype from Anke Drewitz. It is indeed subtle and imaginative. I like the title "Black Forest in Blue". Very well done. Did you create a mask for the shape of the exposed area, or was the paper coated in a random fashion?
Anke, glad you liked the image I selected this round.
My cards went out today. Thanks to everyone who has sent me theirs so far. I finally got a proper pen to replace the giant permanent marker I used for the last exchange, so I was able to actually write something on the postcards this time
Thanks, MattKing for the peeling bark. It's very sharp and the toning sets it off nicely.

Apologies that I'll be late again this round, some money troubles happened before I could get the last ones printed off, I'm going to try and get them sent out by the end of next week.
I loved Anke's image. Snow is a great subject for cyanotype. I'm organizing a post card exchange at work (we have 8 locations and at least a few photographers in each). I may have to do some quick cyanotypes just to show the mostly digital crowd what a cyanotype is!
Thanks Samad Asad, for the policeman. Just be careful about taking that kind of shot if you visit the UK!
Two more received last week:
Anke's cyanotype was a big surprise, an extra postcard; Ruediger's program didn't put us on the same list, yet I received this beautiful cyanotype. Thanks for the surprise, Anke!
Samad's "Policeman doing his job"; as Pete said, be careful, not all policemen in all countries like to be photographed. Thanks.
And my postcards? Well, they are all printed, and I'm in the process of writing and sending them.
About half of them went in the mail today: all people of whom I have received a card (17 to date) can expect my card soon. The other cards will be sent out over the next few days.
This just in... after mailing the first batch, I came home and found a card of crispinuk on the doormat. Re-enactment scene, nice picture, thanks!

I had the pleasure to receive postcards from Crispinuk and Samed yesterday
The one from Crispinuk is an amusing picture of to men with their bagpipes and from Samed a postcard from a part of the world I’ll probably newer see my self. It’s a view of alor Star. This is my first exchange round, and this is fun!
I’ll definitely be in for the next round. Thanks to both of you.
