Great image and a very nice postcard, one of the few that has not picked up any damage on its flight across the Atlantic.
Our Canadian postcards are being mailed as I write this. U.S. and International postcards will be mailed this week!
Something a little different, hope you like 'em. bluejeh & bluejeh2
Yesterday I got a very fine print: Boat Building Shed form steelbar. I love the tonal reproduction of the old wood.
I received a very nice print from Matt King this morning, many thanks.
After a few slow weeks, the mailbox is filling up again. Three prints received over the past few days:
Steve Frizza sent a great portrait. I don't remember you taking this picture of me, but I like it a lot. Well printed, as is to be expected. Excellent.
steelbar, boat building shed. Beautiful to see the textures of the wood, combined with the different lines in the photo. Lovely. Well printed, lots of detail.
Matt King, Pump House Graffiti. Abandoned, broken down places, graffiti, it absolutely works for me. The toning is very nice as well.
My cards are printed. I hope I will manage to address and send them by the end of this week.
Two more cards arrived: Pump house graffite from Matt King and Airport security form anikin. Thank you very much!
I've had five really nice cards so far, but haven't commented yet, so here goes:
piu58 - "Carline Thistle" - Looking at this card, you can feel the cold. And the old paper gives it a classic tone.
Ed Bray - "GWR Pannier Tank 6430 & Autocoach W225 - An interesting subject, printed well
Peter Schrager - "Backlot in Las Vegas" - The collection/selection of complementary shapes makes this for me.
redrockcoulee - "Weathered Pillars" - A very nice use of tones and repetition
Trond - "Shore" - Lovely repeating ripples and surrounding textures. The wide borders really suit this.
That's five down, and nineteen to go. Thanks everyone for participating.
PS Just one request to those who haven't sent their cards out yet. It really helps those of us who are slightly disorganized if you include the postcard exchange round number, your name and a title.
And three more cards arrived today - all from my Darkroom Group friends.
steelbar - "The Boat Building Shed" - an excellent small print that really highlights graphic elements and texture - wonder if this is part of our group's Pyro experiment?
bluejeh - "Hedy's Vase" - well lit, interesting item complete with flowers in black and white - often a challenge. And very nicely printed!
bluejeh2 - "Tree Monster" - bluejeh2 knows that I really like forest scenes, and this is an intriguing one. The print is well done, and the cooler tones chosen are intriguing - I tend to default to something warmer for these sorts of roots and leaves, but I like to see a different approach.
That's eight down, and sixteen to come,
Thanks everyone for participating.
My cards are in the mail! Time for me to relax :).
I got a very nice environmental portrait today from anikin, Airport Security, Korean style.
