    I think we can squeeze you in if you want. It's not a big list just go for ALL!

    Wow!! Smallest round I've had and I think I joined in round 8 from memory. Has been a while since I've said "Sign me up for the MAX!" - once again looking forward to all the cards this round. :smile:

    The Revised list has been sent - took me a while to realize that 15 people only meant 14 cards, so we are still ok for everyone. Since it is a small list "replay all" will get corrections to everyone.

    BTW: in the old thread was a small discussion:

    I thought I'll just mention it as a hint (no obligations though) for everyone who wants to "max out" in this small exchange. :whistling:

    Wow, I received my first card in this PCX-35 yesterday!! It's from my neighbor Uwe (piu58) in Germany. A beautiful print of a well composed image made with a Rolleiflex. It's printed on Efke paper. I like the looks and handling of this paper. This one is going up on my wall in my darkroom.
    Thanks, Uwe!

    I can promise 2, but it will be like July and August, since I went on 7/12s.

    I am way too old for this ...

    I also received Uwe's card today. It's really a lovely print. Saddens me a little though as I LOVED Emaks/Varycon paper. Probably 2/3rds of the prints on my wall are printed on one or the other. When I very recently got back to printing I was really bummed to find it was gone :sad:

    Thank you for your comments.

    > I LOVED Emaks/Varycon

    I had the luck buying 750 sheets of 30x40cm² for less than 200$ at ebay. That paper may be 10 years old, but it lasts forever. I don’t see any sign of degradation.

    Enough paper for the next 5 years.

    Mine went out the end of last week. I realized as I was dropping them in the box though that I forgot to put who it was from. I added in a little "From: xia_ke" above the address part. Mine was shot at Porter Preserve, so if you get one that is not signed, it's from me. DOH!:whistling:

    Thanks winterclock. It's a beautiful area that I haven't really explored since my childhood. Usually when my wife and I want to get away we head up to Rockland or Acadia. After this past trip we will certainly be returning soon as we had a lot of fun exploring all of the little nature preserves.

    Thanks dpn :smile: Really liking the combination of FP4+ and Ilfosol 3. Just need to tweak my development times a hair bit.

    Thanks Uwe! At only $9.99 for 100 sheets of 4x6, I'm very happy with it so far. When I get some more money together I'm going to buy some of their matte FB which is supposed to be more warmtone and takes better to toning.

    Xia_Ke's card arrived in BKK yesterday - and I too love the paper! Lovely print with great tonal range.

    Thanks oz! Glad to hear you liked the tonal range as I was really questioning whether to tone down the contrast a bit. It is was shot in bright midday sun so I decided to stick with the higher contrast that was the reality of the moment.

    Received dpn's postcard today. A really great shot and not at all what I thought it was at first glance of the image. Was surprised when I read the back of what it was. I'll comment further later when others receive their postcards so I don't spoil the surprise. I also really like the finish of the paper. Never seen Ilford Pearl before.

    dpn's card arrived today - never been to Vegas, but read a short article last week on the iconic "Welcome" sign. Add that to to your card and I think I need to plan a trip at some stage, to shoot these great iconic signs.
