I got my first few cards as well. Its rather exciting isn't it!!!
mooseontheloose (you are popular at the moment). GOAL!! Very interesting shot. I love the total scene. I have never really seen a shot taken and processed in this manor, so its very appealing to me!
lorirfrommontana Hey! You have some runs on the board! Again, love the scene. Good work!
Now, I have some water settling to the right temp at the moment, two rolls of film to develop and a whole bunch of contact sheets to do, and then hopefully I can find a print! like I said, exciting, isn't it!

mike c. I received your card, very nice image, I especially like the rich brown tones you achieved on the Ilford postcard paper. Care to let us in on your process.
I ain't no expert,this was the first time I used Kodak sepia II toner,fallowed by selenium 1/9. I'm happy you liked Roger, could you understand the mumbling I wrote on the back. Ha,Ha I'm such a bad writer.
Mike, thanks. And yes I understood the mumbling quite clearly, does that mean I'm fluent in Mumble?
I just got back from 4H camp. It was a lot of fun. I returned to 6 more cards! A Barn door from Robert Mann. Very cool. A Rocks and Water shot from Pete H. Cool. The awesome soccer shot from mooseontheloose, a car from Paul C, nice. A cool looking moth from Mike C. A beautiful road through a misty field from Guus. All shots were very cool! Thanks everyone. This is going to be a fun collection to display.
Received another today. A nice shot of beech trees by bwakel. Thanks!
It is so much fun to go to the mail now! I am heading out to go get an album for my postcards.

I'm suffering two-day withdrawl. ;p
Finally get to send them out. Unfortunately while I was going through them I notice a few had fixer stains. So if your going to keep it you may want to wash them. Certainly don't stack with other you are planning on keeping.
Sorry about that.
I've been away this week, and got home to a whole stack of cards :)
Rmann's white door. You can't beat large format for tone and detail. Is it a crop or did you use a shrinker instead of an enlarger?
Lori's signs. That must be a long-lost relative in Montana (Harris 7.8m).
Barry's bluebell woods. Interesting effect. I keep expecting a Cossack to appear through the woods.
The cemetery from Christopher Walraith. An optimistic message - life goes on as the tree hides the gravestone.
Matt King's whimsical wetland walkway. It looks like a good bird watching area too.
The shot from Guus is a tranquil country lane. To me it evokes the sound of rooks cawing.
The IR shot of the Sacré Coeur from Rachelle is simply brilliant! The boy and the Basilica create a diagonal tension, the clouds and trees to the upper left add a second diagonal to draw attention to the church, the boy standing on the right forms another diagonal with the near boy, great timing for the kick. Wish I'd taken that shot!
Thanks to all!
