This is a bummer because it is the second time I have had to type my comments. Last night just before posting my text APUG had a "hick-up" and all was lost. I gave up and went to bed. Now I am fresh and will start over.
First, thanks to all for all the very nice cards, and for the comments on my card. Second, this has been a very interesting round with lots of variety. Here are my comments not in any particular order, just how the pile is arranged on my desk.
Of Mike Wilde's 3 card I like photo No. 2 the best. You definitely succeeded in making a contemporary photo look very old.
The photo from piu58 has great tones and detail. The stories that could be told from this photo.
The photo from Roger Thoms of a door to a "supply yard". Really sharp!
The card from J Rollinger took me a while to figure out. A great example of how a mistake can become a good photo.
The photo from c.w. is simple composition, but keeps the viewer involved.
The photo from rst uses depth-of-focus to highlight the subject. Well done. I really like the paper. Do you need to work under a red safelight with this paper?
Thank you for the guardian angel swittmann.
Paper negatives in a 4x5 camera, cool idea ccross!
A photo of a crazy car form Valerie.
I like to photo from mooseontheloose in so many ways: how the prayer flags surround the monastery, the perspective, HIE, ... My favorite so far this round. Thanks for an outstanding card Rachelle.
The color card from hpulley looks like it was printed many years ago. The high contrast and red/green color give the photo a nostalgic feel.
The card from Trond is a simple composition with a lot of "stuff to read".
I really like to tones and detail in the photo from George Nova Scotia. Well done.
When I received the card from MattKing it was immediately recognizable. I have traveled on these ferries many times on my way to Salt Spring Island.
Cool perspective of a Paris landmark from hwv.
I really like the illusion of a person looking at a wall without the person. Great tones and detail. Thanks ndrs.
The card from Allen Friday could be viewed several ways and still work. Took me a while to get the orientation in which it was photographed.
Thanks to all for all the fantastic images. I look forward to more. I have received 22 of 42 sent.
