I received Thimbles from Matt King. A very fine photo, real good tones and color by toning. Thank you.
Got Guus' interior of an office building and Matt's thimbles, interesting compositions.

15 (+1) Postcards are in the South African Postal system...sorry for the delay.
I received Brian's very fine, neatly composed card and a special one from Anikin which made me feel like a young boy again, who's trying to figure out what the world looks like through a kaleidoscope. It was great fun, not only for me, but also for my friends.
Two cards received during the last few days. MattKings "Thimbles", nice detail from a ferry, and it makes me think about sailing. Also Anikin's 3D experiment, which actually works. Very cool!

My gathering of comments on prints from the 'waiting for coments shelf' that have arrived at my place in the last week or so:
Drpsilver – Bird Tree- I like the nice pattern of the clouds, which seem to sympathetically support the angular shape of this distorted tree. The image is sharp from foreground to the back of where we expect there would be sharpness. My only minor quibble is in seeing the boat on the right edge of the frame. A small shift in the taking position would have masked this and removed any ‘hand of man’ from this frame. The print tones, as set in the darkroom exposure and selection paper grade are great.
FotoGys - Architecturally inspired interior scene- A very nice subject (but I would not want to be the cleaner responsible for it). It is nicely framed, with the curvy column anchoring the right side of the print. I enjoy the clean tones and paper contrast selected in making the print. I think they are quite pleasing.
MattKing -Thimbles – A nice tack sharp macro shot. I like how you have framed it to partially cut of a part of the upper and lower elements of the progressively rising set of cable anchors in this scene. The toning gives good shadow density, and, I think, brings out the sheen of the wire rope very well in the print.
MarkBarent – Concern- Apart from the modern hard hat, this image could have been captured any time within the last 100- 150 years. The blur of motion works well in the otherwise static scene. The scene is nicely lit by virtue of your selection of camera position or perhaps just a bit of luck. The print has a good balance of featureless shadows and featureless sky, with just the right bit of tonal information in between.

'bout time I post what I have - not a lot thus far, but I am sure we will come home with a full head of steam (considering I haven't sent mine out yet)......
Mike Wild - I have three from him, making most of the postage - Marion Bridge, Monck Road Homestead and First Dip. I quite like the old homestead. Quite different to what you see around here! The first dip also tells a good story.
RST - Alien Lamps - Interesting composition. I must admit, that I wouldn't have seen this if I was looking at the same scene. I'm glad that you did, though!
Jim Rollinger - The Bean - I love it, a group of boys doing what boys do best. Reminds me of a building in my area...hmmm, I must go and photograph that on a lazy Sunday afternoon
markbarent - Concern - I know that look! Nicely caught, just at the right moment. Hope they got the train going again
James Dean - Baby Charlotte - Very nice done. Love those little faces!
As for mine, I have 20 out of the 25 printed. Hopefully, I should get the last negative sorted on the weekend and in the post early next week
Received a great surreal photograph from mooseontheloose today. A strange landscape with balloons and temples, which I like a lot.
I've been late on commenting the latest cards I received...
In the last two weeks I got :
Brian Chambers Museum of Glass. Intriguing architecture !
Matt King's Thimbles. I like mechanical details and this one is very nice. The rythm and textures work well.
MooseOnTheLoose Sunrise over Bagan. The IR effect makes the image almost unreal.
