    Just me I don't understand much either, the only thing I understand at all is the histogram area, even though I don't understand how to read the histogram, I certainly understand that if you're taking multiple scans of the same image, you have to make sure that they are all "exposed" at the same brightness level, that's all those numbers were on the scanner example I showed you, it's just about making sure if the scanner automatically adjusts per the light in the scene, if you're taking different sections it might actually change the numbers slightly and so you have to just make sure they're all fixed at the same number.

    Think of it like making sure that when you're using an larger, that when you make 10 prints of the same image, that you make sure that each image is hit by the enlarger light for the same amount of time and developed at the same amount of time so that all of your prints match. This would be especially important doing something like a triptych...

    Yeah, I get that, just not 100% sure how to do it with what I have (using Vistascan with an Epson 3200 Photo scanner.)

    But I'll see if I can't make a print on 8x10 paper this weekend that I can just scan directly. I could scan the negative with the transparency adapter but I know from experience I can at best get "somewhat similar" to how my wet print looks.

    My IMMENSE apologies.

    Huge oopsies happened to me and spilled over everywhere, including APUG and the BPX.

    The long and short of it all, new place to live, took a second job, enlarger on the blink, no internet except occasional visits to friends, like now.

    So, I have received my print in the post and since I cannot participate I will be sending it along tomorrow to its new destination, my own assignment.

    I do not foresee a change in my circumstance so I will not be able to commit to organizing future rounds.

    I cannot begin to tell you all how bad I feel about being such an absentee organizer. This is not indicative of how things generally transpire here. This has been, BY FAR, the exception. Please accept my deepest and most sincere apologies. I now have to head for home. I'll be back on when I can.
    Thank you.

    Hello Christopher,
    Apologies accepted, but they weren't needed in the first place. We should thank you for all the things you already have done for APUG.
    But before you forward your received print, please read my PM's first!!
    Take your time to get things in order and you're always welcome to visit us now and again. And please don't feel bad. APUG is meant to enjoy yourself with others on photography, not to feel obligated at all.
    And if you like I can organize the next BPX for you to keep things going while you're away - and if the others don't mind.
    I wish you all the best and God's blessings.
    I'll say a prayer for you.
    Sincerely,
    Bert from Holland

    Hi Roger,
    That would be nice. An other option is to send the print to me and I'll scan it.
    Just kidding. Posting an image is not an obligation. It's just to satisfy our curiosity to see what images were send this round. Looking at the pictures of others and reading the stories about it was what made me participate in the BPX in the first place.
    But it's also not obligated - but would be nice - to let the others know what one received and what one like about it. What kind of image is it, what did it make you think of, did it inspire you to do ..., etc.
    If one has the time for it, that is ...

    update and announcing BPX Round 20

    Hi everyone,
    As we all have read, Christopher is not able at the moment to keep the BPX running. I'm volunteering to take over if that's all right with you all. If you think otherwise, just PM me.

    As Christopher stated in the first post: "We have until 31MAR14 to print and send. Plenty of time but I encourage you to get it done promptly. Please post here regarding your print being sent and also remarks about any prints received by you. Praise is always a good thing. April is a break period and also signup for Round 20 which will begin 1May."

    Well, we're not gonna complete this BPX before March, 31st, obviously. But that's all right. All those who haven't been able to send yet, just let us know if you'll be able to send the image - let's say - before April 21st?

    If there is no objection, I could start the new BPX-20 thread to sign up in a week or so. This way the official start still is May, 1st.

    Here is an update on BPX-19:

    I am preparing PMs for each of you. You will receive both your personal information that you provided to me for verification purposes. You will also receive the information provided by the person who has been selected to receive your print(s).

    DO NOT SEND your prints until Monday, 6JAN14 at the earliest to allow time for corrections of addresses to be sent to me and thusly to you as well. We have until 31MAR14 to print and send. Plenty of time but I encourage you to get it done promptly. Please post here regarding your print being sent and also remarks about any prints received by you. Praise is always a good thing. April is a break period and also signup for Round 20 which will begin 1May.

    So, with that, await your PMs and commence to talking. And off we go...

    Sounds good Bert, I would start the new round, but mention in that thread that "you can't sign up here until you've completed the previous round for sending your print" so those who are behind don't "overwhelm" themselves.

    Just in time!!! The print was ready weeks ago but work is killing me... I should already pack the print for the next round...

    I think that's a fine idea. I had already offered Chris to take it myself if he couldn't, just to make certain the BPX didn't die. But if you are interested and willing, then I'm more than happy to agree.

    A question, though. Do you think there might be any support for moving back to a 6-month, twice-per-year schedule?

    For me that guarantees at least a chance for some periods of decent weather to produce something new for each round. This round I had to rely on past negatives.
