    In no order of the members in each group, but group one first followed by two.

    Hoffy- 'Searchingfor trolls...'. Ashley you have really managed to capture every detail of the underside of the bridge. I have never been out after dark on that side of the river so have never caught the scene that you have. Great workmon the split grading and dodging. Glad you did not tell us all where the flaws were this time, and I can't find any. Depth of field is brilliant, and to me this was "the" print of all of them.

    SteveR - 'Untitled'. Or will be. I look forward to reading some of the detail of this image. It looks like it was taken where there is a tide?

    SMBooth - 'Ketch'. Great image and the toning works well. You say you have converted an old Agfa Billy to a pin hole 35, but a square crop 6x6? I am a little confused what is the 35 refering to? I have not used the RC Foma, but like the weight and feel of it compared to the Ilford MGIV Deluxe.

    BarrieB - Private Slipway. Barry I feel like I am sitting there looking at the scene myself. Another picture with amazing depth of field. This picture would be great enlarged to cover a wall. You mentioned your own toning brew... Would you share your secrets on this as I like the rich golden brown colour.

    Munz6869 - 'Bridge, somewhere near Mallacoota!'. Nicely balanced image with the full spectrum of rich whites and deep blacks. Was this image taken with your original Fuji GW680 or the replacement?

    Kevin Caulfield - 'Karon Beach, Phuket, Thailand. Looks like the party is over and everyone has gone home due to storm brewing. Was this the case or was it just because it was morning. Everything looks so calm but for the waves in the distance.

    Tomalophicon - Feathers in a tankard. Taken with an RB 150mm and soft focus. I like this image and need to dig a little deeper as I hope to expand on my RB gear as it is onl one 65mm lens and several B&W filters. Can't decide what to look for next. What was the significance of this image to you?

    Michael W - Rooftop. My wife likes this image a lot. The subtle colour toning and grain from pushing the TX. Great to see lithe prints and lith on Foma as this is what I use a bit of but have not gotten around to using with the lith process. Only last week started soiling my own lith chemistry but did not get around to printing on the Foma paper just Ilford MG. I know what I want to expect now. Thanks for this image Michael a real beauty.

    Andrew K - 'Photographers little helper'. I look forward to what you send out Andrew as much as the stories behind the prints. I thought lugging a RB67 around was a chore, god what it would have been like to carry this Graflex about to gather the news images. It must be fun to take out and use. And a Bonus print as well from your Holga - 'In a Spin'. That is a piece of work getting that with the 4 second exposure hand held at arms length. How many were attempted?

    Thanks everyone for the prints. Another round where there is big spread of formats, films and processes. I will look forward to future rounds with enthusiasm.
    Cheers - Andy C

    Andy, thanks for comments, image was cropped from 6x9 to 6x6 as I think it looked better. the 35mm refers to the 'focal length' of the pinhole camera. I use the pinhole Afga billy folded up. Yes its a nice RC paper the Foma, I get it from Blanco Negro in NSW.

    Thanks for your comments, Andy. My photo was taken fairly early in the morning, so the beach was very quiet. More dogs than people. Yes, the waves were fairly huge. We stayed there for a week and our boys didn't even want to go the beach as the hotel pool was too much fun, but the waves would have been too intense for them anyway.

    Nice portraits. I really like the originality of in a spin and the inclusion of boobs made it a GREAT shot. Keep it up.
    I like the toned version of the Photographer's little helper best.

    Andy,
    I like the way the caffenol has stained the paper. Seeing this as part of a series would make the subject matter more 'complete'. How'd you make the funky stamp?

    Michael W.
    Perfect photo. I love the symmetry, the shapes, the texture and the colours. It's excellent.

    Kevin Caulfield.
    Good shot and it has a serene feel to it. I'd like to be there instead of where I am. How the hell did you get it so sharp. I can never get my prints that sharp.

    Thanks guys, I wish we had bigger groups and look forward to the next one.

    Andy, there is nothing significant about my photo. I just found the jar full of feathers when I was visiting my dad.

    Ah there is significance, you found/saw the feathers and wanted to photograph it. Brilliant.

    I often leave out the coffee when doing printing as I prefer the cleaner, warm picture look. These prints though I didn't think anyone would believe they were developed in washing soda and vitamin C...

    The series of pictures ended up in a leather bound notebook I made for my wife. They were all close ups of things about the back garden which had some meaning to her. I could post a collection of the images time permitting. None of these negs have been scanned as yet.

    The stamp was designed with my father inlaw who makes embosing stamps and engraves glasses etc. I was impressed by some stamps I had seen from past exchanges and thought that is a nice touch. I now see there are several of us using an embosed stamp of some sort now.

    Andy, I really like the processing and yes I'm amazed it's washing soda and vit C. So what does the coffee do to the print?
    I'd like to see more in the series.

    What does the coffee do... Well as far as I have been able to work out, stains the paper. Not much science to my experiments. Mix caffenol and print, leave out ingredients and print. If it works note what the differences are if it does not work note what not to do next time.

    As for the rest of the series I will have sit in front of the computer and scan them. I say it like this as I spend too much time in front of a screen doing my 9 to 5 job, that spending more time at home becomes a real chore, hence having a wet darkroom. Gets me out of the house into my own little world. Will give my self til the end of the week to scan and post.
    Cheers - Andy C
