    So I'll have some prints made next week and will ship that weekend.

    Dwayne's still does chemical prints but I think they use a light jet so you still need a scan, I don't think they do chemical prints from a piece of film directly, although I could be wrong...

    Question, when is it no longer "Blind"?

    I forgot to send info on what my image was and settings etc.

    I was wondering can I just post it here? I can't find the user to PM directly?

    Are they even supposed to know who I am?

    Well... If you get this image, these are the settings (although I remember it being 2 minutes not 60 seconds as the exposure time, however the sun was coming up over an hour period so perhaps this one was shorter (also I went from Velvia 50 to Velvia 100 and so maybe I shortened the exposure and didn't remember now that it's been over a year.

    Well... Forgive me if this is the wrong move...

    The print I sent...

    Stone:

    The recipient is supposed to know who you are once they have your print.

    Ask Eugene (our intrepid leader anikin) for the APUG name of the recipient.

    And your posting the photograph here (by way of the link) probably damages the "blind" nature of the exchange more than disclosing your identity.

    I re-read the faq... It said the blind part is the recipient doesn't know what their getting till it arrived... So I didn't disclose WHO is getting this print... Just that someone is... So when they get it, they can come here and see the link and know the info about the print.

    Doesn't ruin the blind part since the blind part is not knowing what you get, and they won't know till they open it

    One final piece of info, it's on metallic paper as I felt it was the best representation of the chrome look.

    I like the idea of participants posting their submissions to the General Print Exchange Gallery, and would encourage everyone to consider it. But I always wait until the recipient first acknowledges their receipt of my photograph before doing so. This preserves the "blindness" aspect and guarantees that they are the first to see it.

    Good idea except I forgot the paper with my info, it's literally a blind print, I didn't even leave my name... Lol

    Just a suggestion from my "anally retentive" side ...

    It is really a good idea to enclose with any parcel a note that indicates the sender, their address, the recipient and their address.

    In case the package gets damaged in transit.
