    Ok, time for an update:

    Pete H: Opera house, the angle is interesting, after few seconds, if it was not of the peoples, you would not be sure if the picture is upside down or upright.

    kraker: Infrared, always a pleasure to see, love the surrealism of the ambiance. The paper is also a great addition to this image.

    Rob / Hannah: I look at the picture, then I look at my 50 something cards ready to be mailed, and I put them in the trash bin. I was not proud of my prints, and was thinking about doing a reprint for the last days, they look so bad compared to all the ones I received and your card helped me to take my final decision. It is so sharp and tones are fabulous, it is the kind of image I like. She did a great job on it...

    Back to the darkroom now...
    - Note to self: Next time processing a film, take notice of the shape of the beer bottle and the shape of the fixer bottle, and note the differences. -

    Lots to comment on

    Anikin's very amusing Napoleon chess set. I'm always impressed by people who print in colour - I can't even get B&W right. I must admit that my mental picture of Josephine is not quite the same as the figure in the chess set

    It's great to get alt process prints in the exchange. Sly's Colliery Dam footbridge is the first tea-toned cyanotype I've seen. The brush marks, paper texture, and torn edges all work together with the toning so I'm expecting to see someone in Victorian clothes appear at the end of the bridge. Thanks for the hard work, Lillian!

    PhotoJim's farm building. The thin upper clouds and the grass form a nice spiral which takes the eye into the middle where it looks as if the tree is supporting the building.

    Kraker's Lily pond. The tonality is just so beautiful combined with the IR effect. We're honoured to get your Brovira, Jacco!

    Another John from JohnnyWalker. Perfectly exposed and printed to show the shadow details at the same time as every detail of his face.

    Laurent's frosted wood and grass. I like the contrast between the made-man straight lines and the natural curves.

    LikeMarlonBrando's carriage driver. The carriage behind frames the driver and horse's head nicely.

    Kevin Kehler's old door. Are there so many derelict farm buildings in Canada? PhotoJim gave us the overall view, and now Kevin goes in close for the detail. As others have said, the texture is really special.

    Labcoat - you managed to get in very close but the birds don't seem too bothered. It makes a nice family scene.

    Rob Skeoch and Hannah: The direct look, centred subject and angle of view seem to convey a lot about the worker, and the building and steps give it a strong composition. Excellent!

    Thanks to everyone.

    Pete

    Patrick and Pete, thanks for your comments. Good to know that my cards have started to arrive at their destinations.

    One more today

    Rob Skeoch (Hannah) - I recognised your print from the last exchange I was in, round #17. Not the same photograph mind you, but the same style. Maybe it's the "Zeiss look" but yours is always one of the favorites when I show people my postcards. I read the back and was surprised to see it was taken by your daughter, the style is quite similar. Or I'm just not too good at recognising style.
    A lovely photograph, and the wider angle lens really works for this. Great angle and fantastic tones, especially in his jeans. A lot of individual elements that tie it all together, I like the symbol on the hat. Fantastic shot and masterfully printed - what more can you ask for. I imagine it'll be a favorite of this round as well.

    Two more cards this week -- Hoffy's close-up of cut-logs really emphasizes the texture and grain of the bark, and Rob Skeoch's/Hannah's postcard of the Haitian worker is a great example of environmental portraiture that I would like to be able execute half as well.

    I Have received two more postcards during the last two weeks:
    Rob's photo taken by his daughter. I's great that she is working as an aid worker, and it's also great that she is taking photographs on traditional film.
    Pete's Pinhole from Norway. Nice pinhole. While watching it, I have a good mind to take a picture with my capuccino cam again.
    Until now, I've received 10. I'm looking forward for those still on their way.

    Btw, here is a little "making of" video of my postcard.

    I finally got all the film developed, picked out the image for the exchange and printed it last night. The cards are drying and will be ready to mail starting tomorrow.

    Just like last round, I will be sending a typical Iowa image.

    I’ve previously commented on nine cards. Since then, cards from 2 more APUGers have come in:

    Rob Skeoch/Hannah
    - “Haitian Worker” - excellent and intriguing - like father, like daughter
    Pete H. - “Norwegian APUG Gathering” - I too really like rocks!

    11 down, 17 to go

    Thanks to everyone for participating.

    PS - mine are printed, spotted and labelled, and the cards addressed to Canadian APUGers are in the mail. The rest will follow shortly.
