I must admit. I like seeing that everyone likes the prints I sent out. But, Darwin, I really appreciate your words. This is only the fourth negative I have ever printed and after about three rounds of dialing in overall exposure and about eight-ten rounds of getting the local contrast control the way I felt it I was very happy with what I came up with. I really do appreciate your comments for a complete rookie.

Haven't gotten any cards in over a week. I will await as patiently as my upbringing and personal experiences will permit. Everyday when I get home from work I ask 'Any postcards?' to a recent, resounding 'Sorry, Dad.'

That's OK. It's been great so far. I will sign up for the max next time.
