Choosing a neg was fine. Printing 50 odd copies was no problem. Hand writing the messages and addresses was OK...
Going to the post office was HELL. Still, it's done now. Good luck on receiving them!
2nd, 3rd and 4th postcard received today from Mike Wilde, three very nice images, as always amazing to see what you can do with old paper. I like all three images, each has its own merits, each breathes its own atmosphere. If I had to choose, I would agree with my fellow countryman FotoGys: first dip of the year. Joyful is indeed the right description for that shot.
I too got Mike Wilde's 3 cards, thanks! And like the others the first dip is great, love the scene of the trio and always love to see the old papers.
Got the Bean too, great reflections and interesting moment to capture. Thanks!
Still haven't done mine...
Received Mike Wildes three-pack yesterday. I would agree with the others, First dip is my favorite over the other two images. Thanks Mike!

The care from piu58 (Uwe Pilz) is wonderful. The feeling age and conflict are very strong. Great tones and super sharp!
The card from JRollinger was immediately recognized. I has at the very same place in July for a wedding (and photography). "The Bean" or "Cloud's Rest" is a really neat place to visit (as well as study the physics of mirrors).
Of the three prints from Mike Wilde I like "First Dip of the Year".
Lastly, I am hoping the get some darkroom time this weekend. I hope to have my cards out by month end.
I receive my first card from Ruediger this morning. Luftpost is fast :)
Ruediger, very nice postcard and a discovery for me. Indeed, Germans are very king with our "dog friend".
The landscapes behind is beautiful and "zen".
Thanks a lot :)
I am printing mine and posting them this week-end.
All the best
Received rst's Aliens yesterday. Recognised it as Rüdigers card just by seeing and feeling the type of paper; it's the same paper you used in the previous round, isn't it?
Nice minimalistic, graphic subject. They are among us!
