    Johnnywalker - Wonderful portrait and great print.
    Matt King - putting the new camera to good use! I really like the tone of this print too - is it all from the developer?
    Thanks to all who've commented about my cards (and Capilano Canyon ).

    As to the tone of the print, here is what I posted earlier (it even is addressed to "Tim" ):

    I am going to have to apologize for being late on my post cards. I thought I would try toning. It didn't work the way I thought it would. So I will have to reprint. Sorry...

    Haha, nice. I've never toned before, but I like the look you got on the card that I got. Which is good, because I have some newly ordered selenium toner and some brown toner too.

    First, an apology. I've been somewhat tardy in getting my cards out. They were printed way back in January, and have been posted today.

    To date, have received:

    rtbadman - Ravenswood Generating Station
    Allen Friday - Carousel and Tower
    mthorley - Old Crop Seeder
    donminbox - pink Rose
    TimVermont - Bascule Bridge

    (lorirfrommontana & drpsilver's both arrived ages ago.)

    More cards for comment!

    McKenna's old coins- What a cool idea! Really interesting and well done. Even the arrangement of the coins is superb!

    Mark T's old crop seeder- Quiet country feeling to this one, it's too bad the post office got a little rough with it. (bent and torn!)

    Matt's cliffhanger- I don't care how you spell it, it's gorgeous! I love the warm tones and the detail is excellent. Looks like a beautiful area for exploring.

    BlackDog's beach scene- Somehow I knew this card was yours before I looked at the back. How cool is that? The high key tones in this are simply yummy. (don't know how else to say it) It's so well done I feel like I'm there, (I wish!) and the sparkly bits in the water are the icing on the cake.

    And finally gordrob's Albertosaurus- I can't help but smile when I see this card...DINOSAUR! The memories! I'm instantly transported back to numerous family trips to Drumheller and the Tyrrell museum. Love that place. Thanks!

    Thanks to everyone this round! My cards will go out in a day or so.

    Thanks!-I've got quite into my high key printing recently [well even TJC is doing it...].It can be quite challenging striking the right balance though as you really need to watch the drydown. I'll pass your comments on to my models [my parents and some very old family friends].

    Hi everybody, I received quite a few cards last week:

    From Black Dog, a very interesting beach scene that has a dreamy feel to it. I like the reflections on the water and the "sea air" this photo makes me smell!
    Matt King sent me his cliffhanger tree: beautiful tone indeed, and a very detailed print to boot! I like the light in this photo and how the rocks contrast the trees.
    Last but not least, I received an envelope from Mike Wilde with three photos. Two portraits, well photographed and printed and with interesting explanations. I like the high key one better, great expression on the model! Third photo was my favourite of the bunch as I am a keen admirer of all things old and rotten. With the low contrast print, you have captured the transcience of all things human. (hope i did use that word correctly?)

    So thank you three and all others for the nice photos!

    I received Tim's postcard today. I think I now understand what is meant by 'That Leica Glow'. Great print.
    Thank you.

    I got two "cards" yesterday :

    Crispin's iceland house, lovely print of a lovely place. The second card in color in this exchange.

    Mike Wilde's enveloppe with three (actually 4, but there's a duplicate) nice prints. Two very classical portraits, and a view of an old radio shack. The low contrast adds a lot to the old radio equipment.

    Thanks for these !
    Laurent
