Two more cards today.
The Kodak Darkroom at Disney World and Mike Wilde's card. Both are great! It is so much fun getting the mail. I can't wait to see what new image has arrived.
I'm sorry it looks like I forgot to sign the Kodak Darkroom card.

At long last my cards are on the drying screens as I write. This round has begun with some fantastic work coming to my mail box. It is always exciting to see what each round brings. Hopefully my cards will go into the mail by mid-week.
The cards I have received to-date are (in no particular order) ...
The card from Rlibersky is a reminder of past days on two counts: (1) the Kodak postcard stock, and (2) when darkrooms were almost everywhere.
The card from Christopher Walrath is well composed, and nicely printed.
Mike Wilde's card is a reminder that I must go the Sierra to photograph soon.
I like how FotoGys draws the viewer into the meadow. I find this landscape very inviting.
Initially the card from mike c was a little unnerving. Did not realize that moths that big existed. I really like the warmtone. It makes the details really "pop".
Pete H's card is so inviting and smooth. Even though it is dominated by high value tones the image works very well.
I like the perspective that paul_c5x4 took in photographing this car. Nothing says one must include the entire vehicle in a photograph.
The card from lorifrommontana is almost 3 dimensional. Great use of soft background.
Matt King's card also is very inviting. I would like to walk into the card and follow the boardwalk. Well done.
The card from Rmann begs to tell a story. I also like to photograph old, and decaying, buildings. They all have stories to tell.
The card from mooseontheloose is very well made (both composition and printing). The boys playing soccer about to kick the ball to Sacre Coeur (by line-of-sight). This is my favorite card so far. Fantastic use of HIE.
Thanks to all for such wonderful cards. Mine will be out soon.
Finally I got some time to join in I will go to my dark room this week .So far I got few cards last couple of weeks.
Pete H. Very interesting shot, very sharp IMO for a pin hole camera.
Nice tonal values.
Rmann White Door-Hurley Barn, I am also interested in photographing old buildings . Good composition ,nice printing of the subject.
Matt King A really wonderful image it is almost three dimensional, great lens.
mooseontheloose Exceptional HIE image with great composition, well done
I like this one a lot.
lorifrommontana Apple Blossoms. Great selective focus image , nice tonality.
Mike Wilde Great image with lot of history behind it,well done. I have been once to different waterfalls in the Niagara area couple a years ago with our camera club.
Guus I am sorry I could not read the hole name but I like the image, very tranquil and sharp. Very nice camera Mamiya 6.

Looking is a gift, but seeing is power.
Have to go pick up the mail in the morning, but I'm half way through addressing my cards...just another 25 to go, roughly. Doing it over the course of a few nights.
Dang canadians and your long addresses

dang canadians - what?
We are a giulty as you with the long addreses. I could just say street address , 4 digit postal code, country and the post card would get to you. Most peoiple include the long address as though you were going to drive there, rather than have the postal system deliver it.

If I happenned to live in an appartment buiding, my return postal address could be as short as my unit number, and the psotal code, because most large apartment buildings have their own postal code.
my real name, imagine that.

I must admit. I like seeing that everyone likes the prints I sent out. But, Darwin, I really appreciate your words. This is only the fourth negative I have ever printed and after about three rounds of dialing in overall exposure and about eight-ten rounds of getting the local contrast control the way I felt it I was very happy with what I came up with. I really do appreciate your comments for a complete rookie.
Haven't gotten any cards in over a week. I will await as patiently as my upbringing and personal experiences will permit. Everyday when I get home from work I ask 'Any postcards?' to a recent, resounding 'Sorry, Dad.'
That's OK. It's been great so far. I will sign up for the max next time.
You are 100% correct, addressing the postcard to Simon at Ilford was a short story in itself.

All my postcards are addressed and sitting in a box next to me, look forward to my prayers they all arrive.
US zip codes are actually 9 digits long, I believe, though people seem to only write the first five. In any case, my cards went out today. Since I was getting bored with the Vancouver Olympics stamps, I ordered in some more interesting ones from Canada Post... hope everyone likes them (and the cards).
