    Lori - I received your postcard this week. It arrived a little scratched up from the postal machines but the print still looks great. I love those old sign posts!

    Well, I guess that's my only card I'm going to receive until I get back from Japan in September. A few cards have already arrived at my parent's place but they'll be sending me the whole lot when I return in the fall. I'll make all my comments then!

    The last of mine, to European and Canadian addresses, went out with yesterday morning's mail. I also received my first, from Pete H, a long-exposure shot of a rocky cataract taken from an interesting angle--very nice.

    Mine got labelled and posted at lunchtime today. All it took was the first postcard to arrive at my end, and for my wife to not have me scheduled to do something on her list for every day over the past weekend.
    my real name, imagine that.

    Originally, I put this in the wrong thread -

    I have received some cards - very nice - really glad I joined this enterprise.

    So far I have gotten cards from:

    Chis - love the live tree surrounding the tombstone
    Rachelle - great IR shot - another reason for Kodak to bring this film back
    Lori - Interesting - everyone lives to the left and one even puts up their phone number
    Pete - love water shots, especially moving over rocks

    Someone asked - the shot I sent is a reduction and slightly cropped, I thought it was easier to set up the "enlarger" for multiple prints rather then use a contact printing frame.

    Looking forward to getting the rest in mail -

    Robert

    Just got back from a week in Sweden to be greeted by a whole stack of cards. I'll write some comments about them soon...

    In the meantime, I wanted to say that for anybody who uses Latex for other purposes, there's a nice 'labels' package that works great. I was using some OS X program called pearLabelizer, but the labels package for latex is significantly easier. If you are comfortable with Latex already...

    Just prepare a text file with each address separated by ONE blank line and a very simple tex file which includes the layout dimensions for your label sheet (margins, number of labels, and spacing inside and outside of each label) and you're done. It also has a function for adding a border around your labels so you can soft proof the page.

    Mike C's moth arrived after flying across the Atlantic - no wonder it's resting! Seriously, the wood and hairy moth textures are really rich and I like the toning treatment too.

    Cheers

    Mike - More kind words. I've been playing around with different toners for my postcards. Selenium, home brew polytoner, your sepia II/selenium, straight sepia II and guess what. The sepia II/selenuim is the clear winner. Thanks again for the info your toning process.

    It occurred to me that I omitted these details from the backs of my cards so if anyone would like to know . . .

    Title- 'Etched In Stone' (straight scan in my gallery)
    Exposed in 2007
    Minolta sr-T101
    TMY (ISO 400 TMax)
    Developed in HC110 Dil B for 6 minutes
    Printed on Arista RC VC Paper

    I'm dying to get more cards, myself. I'm glad everyone is pleased with mine thus far. I had fun printing them.
    Thank you.
