I received not one but two prints from Steve Smith today. Thanks Steve.
At first I was drawn to the image of the post on the beach. Perfect depth of field and nice contrast. And then the more I looked at the image of the three trees the more I liked it. Just shows that sometimes you need to go beyond first impressions when viewing prints.
I'm also pleased to see what the Ilford matt paper looks like as I've never used it before - it's very nice.
That's the flattest I have ever got FB paper. I used the 'heavy book for a few days' method. Anything I have tried in the past gave me temporarily flat prints which curl up after about a day.

I am having real trouble accessing APUG at the moment - basically, I can only get on to the site from my work PC and not from home as it continuously times out before connecting. This means that I only picked up the message from Brian this morning about my involvement in Round 10.
I can't see a deadline for this round but its unliklley that I'll be able to get a freash print out till after next weekend. If the deadline is sooner than, say, the end of the month, then I'll have to send and older print from my portfolio. How long have I got?
I've been everywhere ooooohhh yeaahhhh still I'm standing tall.
