2nd, 3rd and 4th postcard received today from Mike Wilde, three very nice images, as always amazing to see what you can do with old paper. I like all three images, each has its own merits, each breathes its own atmosphere. If I had to choose, I would agree with my fellow countryman FotoGys: first dip of the year. Joyful is indeed the right description for that shot.
-- A sinister little midget with a bucket and a mop / Where the blood goes down the drain --
The care from piu58 (Uwe Pilz) is wonderful. The feeling age and conflict are very strong. Great tones and super sharp!
The card from JRollinger was immediately recognized. I has at the very same place in July for a wedding (and photography). "The Bean" or "Cloud's Rest" is a really neat place to visit (as well as study the physics of mirrors).
Of the three prints from Mike Wilde I like "First Dip of the Year".
Lastly, I am hoping the get some darkroom time this weekend. I hope to have my cards out by month end.
... it's the same paper you used in the previous round, isn't it?
Yes it is and I hope you like it since I am going to use this paper for the next rounds too. My standard paper right now is Ilford MG WT FB, but this paper comes second and does not stress my wallet as much as the Ilford does. And in fact, it is a total different paper, more on the neutral side.
