The lighting was done with the above mentioned Ministudio from Hama and a Canon EZ-430 Speedlite mounted above and to the side. I believe I had an f-stop of 11 and 1/60 second, but I'm terrible at keeping notes.
Printed on Ilford MGIV RC portfolio glossy (postcard) and developed in Neutol NE 1+7 for 60 seconds.
Far to often I say that I'm not that interested in the technicalities, but then I keep making the same mistakes over and over because I'm sloppy on taking notes in controlled situations like this.
Thanks for your belated card. I hope you are feeling better? I really like the tent you were using to make this image. It gives non directional light which is very nice in certain situations. Very nice ,me like. See you in next round.

Thanks for the card!
I received 28 postcards out of 31! That was more than I expected. A Big Thank you to everyone for their efforts. Fabulous round!
Well this round just never ends! I just got a postcard from the one armed printer too. :D Thanks BirgerA!
What a surprise! I've just received postcard from Birger.
I find it excellent in both aspects: technical and artistic. Congratullations for this great work!
Two lovley tulips made their way to the USA. Thanks, BirgerA, for a nice postcard.
I received another postcard from someone in Santa Ana, California. At least it was sent from there judging from the postmark. There was no signature but I'm assumining it's from Eric Maquiling because of the website having the word maquiling in it? It's a beautiful image of school children going to school in the Philippines on the back of a motorcycle with a roof/cover over it. Well done and nicely printed too! Thank you very much.
Thanks, Birger, for the tulip postcard, and I'm glad to see that your arm is better!. That lighting is really beautiful. :)
It has just arrived today - presumably it took longer to cross Oslo than it did to get to the US & Canada, judging from other posts. (Today I also received a priority letter posted 11 days ago in Oslo). I'm not impressed by the local post office's efficiency :confused:
