I received my first card today from mooseontheloose (Rachelle).
It is titled "Basilique du Sacré Coeur, Montmartre"
It is very nice work in HIE - one of the first I've seen which includes people and movement. I love the shadow of the young soccer player.
Just 23 more to go :).

I got three today.
Matt, I love the tonality and detail that came out in your print. I have a NWR about five miles from home and this is a scene I love.
Lori, great subject matter. A lot to absorb and it is very engaging. I love it.
Rachelle. Holy Wow! That is simply amazing. Nice use of filters? Burning? Don't tell me. Don't wanna know. You nailed it.
Lorirfrommontana,just got your post card today,my first one. Its really neat, that must be the road to everywhere,thanks I like it, it will be the frist one I put up in the darkroom wall.

Thanks for the kind comments Matt and Chris! I have to admit that the image was just me finishing off a roll of HIE -- I don't know why I don't have more people in my HIE shots -- it's a lot more dynamic than my usual stuff. ;)
Chris, I know you don't want to know, but that's a straight print (and I realized I forgot to mention in my info on the back of the card - standard red 25 filter). I try to avoid using images that require a lot of dodging and burning for the postcard exchange unless it's an easy dodge or burn (like just the foreground or a corner or whatever). I just don't have the time or patience when printing 50 small cards!
An update on the Ilford Postcard Paper in Australia: I asked at Total Photographic Supplies this morning and they did the run around for me and found the warehouse had 2 boxes of it in Pearl, sitting around. I do assume this is old stock - apparently the whole Portfolio range has never sold well in Australia, and they don't keep much on hand in any size. Which is fairly sad.
I've ordered both though, and we'll see.
Two received today:
"Signs" from lorirfrommontana - A couple of gashes on the print thanks to postal machines. Quite a list of names, and I suspect a story there as well.
"Basilique du Sacré Coeur" from mooseontheloose - I've got to get some high speed IR film (ADOX 820 at IE1 is way too slow). A very interesting picture.
Sent mine off this morning, its no little task but worth it.
Received my first postcard today from Pete H.
Nice picture of glass objects on the table.
Looking forward receiving the other ones, exciting watching the mailbox every day for postcards.
Received two today,Rachelle great card like the way you caught the boy in mid stride kicking the ball. The water falls are done really nice Pete,softness of the water is great. Thank you both for the cards.
