Following the good example of Matt, here's also an overdue update from me.
Cards received since my last update:
rst, Zwinger, Rothenburg o.d. Tauber: very sharp for a pinhole. Oh wait, deviation from the previous round, it's not a pinhole ;). Very nice print, lovely.
DrZish, McCormick's Creek: The cracks in the stones and the shadows on them make for a nice composition.
Trottkiller, lighthouse: nice subject. Sharpness and detail is amazing, but if I were to print this, I think I would try to get some more contrast.
Rob Skeoch, Mont-Blanc: well, that's the contrast I was talking about! Nice shot.
markrewald, Snow storm. I like this one. It's so simple, yet so effective. Sometimes I have trouble seeing photo opportunities in everyday situations, but I have to remind myself that that which might seem simple to me can be very interesting in print. I'll try to learn from this (again).
wazza, Storm Rolling in: stormy sky and an interesting foreground. Well done!
Oh, and I received a card from some guy who goes by the nickname of "kraker". Counting that one as well, I have received 22 out of 26. Not bad at all, and who knows... more might show up!
Thanks for another interesting round. Looking forward to round 20!
I received OzPhoto's Bangkok Taxi Series card tis week ! First time I see an instant print, this is quite cool !
I'll second Laurents comments on OzPhoto's card. Very cool.
Thanks Laurent, Roger.
My PA picked up an Instax Mini last time we were in Singapore; I highjacked it for as long as I could, to get these shots - thankfully the film is readily available here. (She has burned through 15 boxes already . . . . . . )
Pity it is rated so high though - overexposure was a killer on several shots even with me selecting the smallest aperture. From memory about 6400asa!
I've not forgotten you. My postcards are printed, but I did not get around to labeling them before I went on vacation. Will fix that as soon as I get back home (in about 3 weeks).
A treat arrived in the mail today, and it is part of Postcard Exchange 19!
I’ve previously commented on cards from 24 people. Today’s arrival is from:
gordrob - “Waterfowl Lake” - a beautiful image printed very well
25 people have sent their cards so far, and cards from 5 people (BirgerA, GeoffHill, photomem, timk and zumbido) are yet to come.
Thanks to everyone for participating.
I also received gordrob's "Waterfowl Lake" in Banff National Park. I've been to Banff several times but never got to visit this lake as I always went out of season! Thanks for the memory from home though -- one of my favorite things to do was exploring what was available along the Icefields Parkway, whenever I was in the vicinity. Maybe the next time I'm in Canada I'll actually be able to go there during the summer!
I also had the good surprise to receive GordRob's waterfowl lake this week !! I love the symmetry of the composition, and the peaceful landscape, thanks !!!
Sent my cards yesterday, apologise for the extreme delay.
I received BirgerA's orchid today, very intriguing view of the subject, the symetric composition works well for me !
