    Thank you, Pete H and, wazza for your kind words and wazza for your additional statement about your subject.

    And kraker, I'm glad about that successful surprise

    drpsilver, here was no mask, just free coating of the paper mostly within the boundaries set by the negative. I had to dealt with a low contrast negative and this was the best way to present it. So I'm very glad to hear the comments so far, but I don't mind to get some constructive critics.

    Greetings,
    Anke

    And I have just to report about the next cards I received:
    Roger Bulcock's contact with Birch trees in the mist
    Peter Markowski's Farm near Edmonton, a calm landscape with lot of room to let my mind wander
    just two cards from Black dog with "shadows and floss" and "dead objects come to life", a homage to Josef Sudek, both cards with a lot of possibilities for interpretations; you have one card in advance for the next round
    Samad Asad's street scene from Alor star town, it's not so much crowdy as I remember from my different trips to asian towns
    crispinuk's German, not historically suited minstrels; who were the combatants in this battle or what is the historical background?

    So far this round, I have halftime, just 15 cards left, but I'm curious about a card from rst, as some people just reported about it in this round and I didn't get one, maybe they gave it really to a snail.

    Thanks for all contributions so far,
    Anke

    Thats just the way I feel, a cold color for cold subjects
    I made some variations with toning, but the blue represented this subject in the best way.

    Oh, that's always a good thing, and I wish you that they can realize the features of this process.

    I've received Anke's cyanotype of the forest. It's beautiful, and as others have said the colour suits the subject matter very well. My mother was born near the Black Forest, in a village named (I think) Huttenhofen (probably missing a few umlauts).
    If I had been present at the creation, I would have given some useful hints for the better arrangement of the Universe.

    Today I received a great abstract, Magazines, from Jacco (kraker) and a very graphic shot of some frozen berries from Avi (aluk).
    One of the great things about the postcard exchange is the variety of cards. I'm just comparing Jacco's low key and strong grain with Avi's high key, delicate tonality in the ice. Very different styles (and chosen well for the respective subjects) and very enjoyable.



    cheers
    Pete

    Pete,

    Thanks for your comments. Wow, mailed from the Netherlands on Monday, arrived in Norway on Wednesday. That's pretty good!

    I've just finished writing the last card, so the remainder of my cards for this round will go in the mail tomorrow.
