    Aron's Old factory near Budapest found its way to Germany. Thank you!
    One thing postcard exchange is good for is seeing different types of paper. I love Fomatone MG classic very much.

    Craig Cross a Bunch of Sand Dollars arrived yesterday.

    A very neat dark shellfish (actually I am not sure what a sand dollar actually is classified as) dominates the frame, over other more 'normal toned' shells.
    Neat framing, good focussing. The print might have been presented a bit more effectively with more contrast.

    The image is presented not square, but instead as slightly skewed to the paper edges. I am not sure if this was a paper mis-loaded in the easel issue, or an artistic statement that was intentional.
    One small corner of the paper was also lightstruck. Again not sure if there is some deliberate design here, or just using up some slightly edge/corner fogged paper.
    my real name, imagine that.

    Mike, thank for the comments on my card, glad you like it. As far as the borders there is a method to by madness. Half inch borders on 5x7 paper gives an image area of 4x6 which matchs the aspect ratio of a 35mm negative. I did end up with a slight crop to eliminate the edge of a window that didn't show up in my view finder.

    I also wanted to thank Laurent and Fotogys for their comment as well.

    Roger

    Found a lovely portrait of Alfalfa in my box today, thanks Mark Rewald. The "effect" you got is quite awesome (now to figure out how to emulate it )

    I've got two cards :

    Craig Cross's "Bunch of sea dollars". Lovely closeup (I've got a preference for the semi-glossy print over the glossy one).
    Rory's Marin Headlands. wonderful print of a seascape, with a great tonal range (I usually do not really care for this range, unless it serves the print) which really make it shine. I first felt the foreground was blocked, but a closer look showed the grass' details. The feeling of light is very well conveyed, and the composition is close to perfection. (Note : I already thought I had to try ART300, and this print definitely confirms this !)

    Thanks !
    Laurent
