For while I received 3 postcards from:
George Nova Scotia - Truro Reservoir.
Labcout - Lake in Scotland
Mooseontheloose - Hiroshima Peace Memorial
Thanks for your postcards, the pictures are gourgeous and very interesting, it is good to see different landscapes that I am used to see in Brazil.
MattKing - Canopy. Another photo which when I look at it, it feels as if I am there. Wonderfully toned. Interesting stamps as well.
Thanks Andy, Uwe, Rachelle, Ruediger and George for the kind words.
Australia, Germany, Japan, Germany again and Nova Scotia, Canada - Isn't it fascinating how quickly they fly around the world!
Yes Matt, sometimes the postcards get around the world surprisingly fast.
Some of you commented on my postcard and mentioned that they like the paper I use. I liked that paper especially for postcards because the paper base seems to be a bit thicker than the base of other papers. I use 'liked' here because I think that paper is now gone. I ordered the last pack in 5x7 from FotoImpex yesterday and they do not know if they will get any more of it (at least in that size and surface). Too bad, but there is still some hope that they will be able to stock up. If not, these 100 sheets will last three more exchanges. Since I already printed the cards for round 27 I think after round 30 I will have to go for another postcard paper. :(

I also received MattKing's postcard. This trail looks like a wonderful place to take a relaxing walk to "get reconnected with nature". I really like the image, and the sepia/selenium toning adds depth to the photo. Thanks and well done!:)
Two more postcards in the mailbox:
13 - Taking a line for a walk between silence and light.
The tiny figures in the distance are what I'm drawn to in this colourful image. Wish I could come up with equally good titles for photos.
14 - Canopy.
A woodland trail in sepia and selenium . Lovely balanced composition.
hoffy - Meerkat, Adelaide Zoo. Arrived yesterday. I must be special ;)as hoffy used an international stamp AU$1.60 to send my card interstate. A 65cent stamp would have done the trick.
This card was immediately grabbed by my three year old daughter, Emma, as the 'kat' she wants. Emma is facinated by the way these animals standup. Really great image with a thin white boarder and the sharp detail of Meerkat the centre of attention.
Lets just say, its impossible to peel off those stamps when you stick them to the wrong postcard by mistake! I hope it made it too you super quick.... :whistling:

Yearning for Iceland.
Black Dog - Between Silence and Light. My first colour print for the exchange. Wonderful Wintery hillside and valley. Something we don't get much of here unless you live above 1000m.
