    Three more since my last update:

    megzdad81, Mt. St. Helens reforestation - Noble Fir. What a view. Mesmerizing, I would say. Great photo. Came out real well despite the vuescan deception.
    Laurent, Escalier en Marseille. Just how one imagines Marseille. Sunny, dreamy, mysterious. Very nice. (No, not Nice, Marseille!)
    mike c, Bucket full of daisies. This blows me away. Just great. The power of repetition, yet no two are the same. How wonderful this is in black and white.

    Great, great, great. Looking forward to round 38. And maybe a few more contributions from round 37 (ideally, five more for me).

    I received Mike C's card this week. A great Spring subject and very well done. You show big cameras aren't just for landscapes. I'm just getting started in large format and hope I can produce an image like this. Thanks for the nicely printed card and large format inspiration!

    Three more in from last week. I can't understand the global postal services how some people get their cards long before others.

    Laurent - Field and trees. I see a tree with leaves and one without then nothing. The card draws me to infinity. I like it alot.
    mike c - Bucket full of Daisy's. So pertinant at this time of year. A crisp enlightening picture that has pride of place on the message board in our house.
    Ozphoto - Folio. What a great idea! I found this very interesting.

    Dear ozphoto, thank you for elaborating this idea so far. A very special set of photographs and other material. Something really special.

    Mike C's card arrived in the past week, and I really like the patterns made by the different daisies. Your description reminded me of a colleague's recollection of his days sharing a studio with 2 other photographers. One had a 5x4 camera attached to a telescopic extender 1 floor above the product being shot. Sad to say, it wasn't attached well and crashed to the studio floor - very happy the heavy duty tripod and ladder didn't experience the same outcome! :D

    Uwe - thanks for your kind words; I'm very happy the project has been so well received by everyone. It was a lot of fun to produce in all aspects: planning, shooting and preparing the presentation materials.

    I too received Labcoat's image, and it was also pouring at the moment, which is quite unusual here (especially in these amounts!

    Thanks, the image looks very nice, and the paper serves it well!
