I have received some very nice cards. My comments follow in no particular order (how the pile ordered its self).
"Being Followed" by Jim17x is a very nice perspective on the world. It is nice to see that it is not a policeman. Nicely composed and printed.
The card from Mark_S makes me want to go back to Niles and photograph. Good range of tones and really sharp. Well done.
It is hard to believe the subject of Peter Schrager's card is from Downtown Los Angeles. I would have thought Japan. Neat perspective on those playing the games.
The card "Be the Art" from mjs has a story. Having been involved in "paint fights" they can be very fun, and the resulting clothing is unique. This woman looks like she is having fun.
It is nice to see Sly back in the PCE. "Evening at the Cardboard House" must have a story behind the image. Lots of possibilities to imagine.
The card from piu58 of Steibs Hof is very nicely photographed. The matt paper fits the subject very well. I can almost feel the roughness of the stone.
Thanks to all for some really nice images.
My cards are on the drying racks, and hopefully will be mailed by weeks end.
Have received 3 more cards in the past couple of weeks:
- Welcome back Sly! "Evening at the Cardboard House"
- Peter Schrager's "Downtown Los Angeles"
- mj's "Be the Art"
All wonderful cards which show a full mix of styles and subjects, and that's what makes the PCE such a blast!:cool:
glad to see my cards are getting where they need to be !!
Mark S's card arrived today - "Engine #2"; welcome to the PCE Mark, great to have you on board! :)
Received 3 cards last week and 2 today.
"Being Followed" Jim17x - really like the unusual viewpoint and framing.
"Be the Art" mjs - a lovely relaxed, happy, and paint-smeared artist.
"Game Arcade" - Peter's glimpse into a world I'm not familiar with. Is the boy someone you know?
MarkS's beautifully printed locomotive arrived today, as did TXFZ1's "Angry Angel" - softly lit, and not THAT angry.
Glad to know my cards are getting to their new homes. Looking forward to checking the mailbox daily for more treats.

mark_s "steam engine", a cyanotype, very gutsy for 1st time participant! i like it , and it arrived relatively unscathed in the post!
jim17x "being followed", very ominous, (an i being paranoid?), especially w the look-a-like police car in front - sign of the times?!:confused:
sly "evening at the cardboard house" - whimsical, lyrical, greating seeing as HIE, and well-done!
squiggle? "pitcher window" - can feel the delicate pitcher, light and beatiful - functional... well photographed and printed.
peter schrager "game arcade" - with the silk finish, gotta look onto it and wander around!
mjs "be the art" - yup, fun, captured well... nothing like being a kid again! the joy and abandon shows!
ozphoto "stonehenge" - drama! and that bird(?) makes the shot! how'd you get it there?;)
rudiger "baltic sea" - now that's a superb image, great use of pinhole cam, great seeing, wonderful composition... wow
piu58 "steib's hof" - nothing like it in florida! i want to move right in! time for a trip back to germany!

sly "evening at the cardboard house", love the portrait of tree , one of my most difficult subjects
mark_s "locomotive #2", wow,
I look forward to opening the mailbox and my fridge is getting crowded. This is my first exchange and such great fun!
I loved 'Be the Art ' too:D
I received two more cards:
A cyanotype print of an old steam locomotive from marks_s. Very fine shot! This card encourages me to try cyanotype ba myself. The card survived the transort fine, only a blotch in one of the corners, obviously from a drop of water.
rince sent me a fine print (in the double sense of the word) from his beauty - a flower. Thank you very much. Taking photos really helps to see more and to see more intense.
Again two cards: Krishna by drpsilver:I love these fine shadows of grey! And Downtown Los Angeles form Peter Schrager, a slightly enigmatic image. Thank you"
