    Got Samad's picture of the water turtle looking up to the sky.
    I've got 21 of 25. The four who haven't sent their postcards are not participating in round 21, so I think, this round is completed for me.
    It was really fun! Looking ahead for pce #21

    Also received a card from Samad: an interesting portrait of a turtle. Can you share where this photo was taken?
    That image of the turtle was taken at home actually. I had released it from its tank so was chasing it around the balcony to get a nice shot. I have to admit that the print didn't turn out as I had wanted it to be though.

    If I remember right, one of my earlier postcards from a some years back featured a turtle too. This one came from that same group (I have 7 turtles now), only it has grown bigger now.

    have a lot of cards here from round 20 on which i didnt comment so:

    gordrob's church stairs - i like to think about how they will be completely overgrown in a few hundred years. very interesting.
    Hannah Skeoch's Haitian Worker - great portrait in the tradition of great documentary photographers!
    Lori Ryan's pond - like the reflections, but feel a very dark and unwelcoming mood at this pond. makes me want to stay at home :-)
    Stephen Frizza: everything has been said - a truly stunning print that glows!
    Crispin: have never seen a Minox print before, and like the grain and the very oldschool look
    Mark Rewald's Park figurine: a true postcard image which you could sell in gift shops in Denver!
    Slumry's teeth - a funny, unusual, well printed photo! thanks for this!
    Allen Friday's Colorado River: love the light and the reflections!
    Kathrine Whitmore's sculpture: thanks for your nice words on the card, and thanks for the card. I like how you put this so very abstract sculpture in context with its completely natural surroundings!
    Tim Gray's Sutton Dam: love the look of HIE, especially the almost "happy" fluffy little clouds over the sturdy structure of the dam.
    Rüdiger's Volkswagen: Nice detail, did not have to turn it around to know what car this is. Whether this says more about your photography or my car addiction is fortunately not up for discussion :-)
    rtbadman's bull: nice portrait, and funny story to go with it. I know exactly how this happens not being a wild flower photographer myself..
    Samed's turtle: looks like it is 100 years old already, fuzzy, grainy, scratched - absolutely love it!
    Black Dog's early morning light: Love the quote, also believe to understand the concept of the photo, but sorry, doesn't work for me. But: Please keep surprising me!

    greetings from Austria, gurkenprinz

    If you have moved and want to receive a postcard from me please send me a PM with your updated details
    Ok... No PM's received...

    Will send these once I get paid, sorry don't have the cash to spend on stamps

    The bottom line is that you will receive a print from me, hopefully this year

    Sorry for the delay in making comments. I wanted the cards to be on display on the fridge for a while so I could have time to see them repeatedly before I started to form thoughts. This was my first exchange on APUG, and frankly, the level of talent and vision has been a bit intimidating. I thank everyone for their work and effort. It was great to look forward to the mail for a couple of months.

    In no particular order:

    crispinuk’s Time Machine has a great otherworldy feel to it, particularly with the grain and the border.

    Black Dog- Luss Hills: very calming image.

    KWhitmore – “Old Friends”: Beautiful glow, just jumps off the paper. I want to visit this coffee shop the next time I’m back in Montreal.

    rtbadman – the tight crop and almost featureless background work well to highlight the bull.

    rst’s Volkswagen- Detail: the transition from sharp lines to creamy and dreamy is fantastic. Sometimes the simplest subject provide the most interesting results, something I need to think about and work on.

    PhotoJim’s derelict building in SK. Soooo crisp! The grass is sharp, the tiles are sharp, even at this distance you can see the grain in the boards. Excellent!

    Sly’s Colliery Dam Footbridge – this is the first time I’ve seen a cyanotype in person and I feel privileged. Thank you. Both the composition and the alt process/toning draw me in. My uncle and aunt live in Nanaimo; beautiful part of the country.

    Oslo Opera House from Pete H. was another card that drew me in. I think it’s cool to have the people so very small in the print. It actually makes me look at them even more.

    I like the square print of The Zen Photographer from mooseontheloose. The greys are clean; I don’t think HP5+ has worked this well in my hands. Must try it again.

    Allen Friday’s Colorado River: I think you’ve captured how something (the GC) so massive and bold can at the same time be so peaceful.

    Haitian Worker from Rob Skeoch’s daughter is a great portrait and a great PJ shot. The folded up cot in the background adds context.

    Unfortunately, markrewald’s fountain figurine was one of several postcards that I received that came in damaged, with a chunk of emulsion scraped off just below the mouth. Too bad, because it distracts the eye from an otherwise cool photo.

    Mick Fagan’s “Looking Up” is just a very slick exercise in lighting and composition. Really nice.

    I want to have a pint or three at BoxBrownie’s “Heart and Hand Pub, Brighton”. Great photo, so punchy in colour (I’m assuming that’s a result of the selenium?).

    Samad’s “Red-eared Slider”: I like how you got down to its level, interesting point of view.

    drpsilver’s “Tafoni, Cambria” was the first card I received in APX20, and is still one of my favourites. So many different textures here, and the Tri-X grain works beautifully here. Love it!

    Tim Gray’s “Sutton Dam”: I usually don’t like much IR photography (it often comes across too unreal to my eye), but I really like this image. I think the fact the foliage is not overcooked here makes it work. The clouds are nice and cottony and hold detail, without being blinding white.

    Many thanks to Ruediger for organizing!

    and it arrived in Stavanger on Saturday. Thanks!
    It is warm on the inside, as opposed to the cold dark outside.

    Now look, this is what I like about the postcard exchange. At the moment we are in round 24 and what I find in the mailbox is a surprise from round 20. I would say better late than never and so I very welcome the postcard I received from Jeff (trotkiller). Well, and I also like the print.

    Thanks and cheers
