Uwe sent me three large prints, beautifully printed on Ilford MGIV RC paper.
The prints are signed in the lower right corner with an embossing showing Uwe's signature. A refined detail which gives a luxurious feel to the prints.

The first print shows a closeup of a flower in Uwe's garden, a Canna Indica, where water drops are on the leaves of the flower.
There is a good separation between the flower and the background, which is nicely blurred but still detailed enough to show that this flower was photographed surrounded by nature.

Secondly a photo of a "strange house" as Uwe calls it, where you see a flag accompanied by two faces on tiles/plates, they look as if they are sculptures in the plates.
What immediately caught my eye, is that the subject must have been quite a bit above eye level (you can just see the top of a window or door in the bottom of the frame), but the bricks of the building are very parallel to the print edges. Well done!

The final photo shows the statue of a sculpted angel, taken in Limburg an der Lahn in Germany.
Taken with his Rolleiflex 3.5F on Fomapan 100, the detail is absolutely wonderful in this print. Shadows, highlights, it all falls together.
Definitely my favourite of the three!

All photos were shot on Fomapan films, the first and second being 200ISO and the latter 100ISO, making me want to try Foma's films again.
Until now I haven't shot much of it because I didn't seem to be able to get them to work for me, but these definitely show me that it's a capable film!
Thank you Uwe, I will gladly add them to my collection!

Thank you for your kind words! I am still on a holiday travel, but I put the prints in the gallery next days.

And arrived yesterday, thanks. It is a print of a photo taken on 6×6 negative of a chapel pictured through some vines. It is very rich in tonal texture with vines in the sun and shadow, complete with a hand written covering note.

It is good to get hand written letters through the post these days. My handwriting is and always has been very poor and illegible so that as much as I would like to do the same, I don't think it would be very helpful!

Thanks, Mike

And finally received, thanks Mike.

First off, Mike made a mild apology in his letter, for sending prints of his 'usual camera fodder'. No apology required! For this is what I love about the Print Exchanges, is seeing what other members interests are and then pictures they take whilst doing 'it'.

Personally, I've never really settled on just one point of interest and generally take a camera with me most places and take pictures of things that catch my eye, i.e. my output is a bit mixed, although I do find myself enjoying taking, printing and then looking at pictures of architecture in all it's many forms firstly.

But onto Mike's prints, two to be precise; a working print and a final print.

The print was taken not far from his home, he says, with the subject being 'slowly disintegrating' buildings, in some disused slate quarries.

I, like many, also like to take pictures of broken, rundown architecture and with a bit of side lighting, as Mike got, details in the brick etc. can be brought out, as well giving a lovely range of darker tones.

I can tell that Mike enjoyed printing this one, from the notes of his manipulations, that he included in the letter.

It looks like a great place to explore Mike.

Many thanks for the print(s).

Terry S

P.S. And well done Mike, for recycling the envelope that I sent my last offering in to you. It's something that I also like to try and do, but not just on here, but in general, some senders almost mummify their envelopes and packages in tape, making the envelope or wrapper totally unusable a second time.

I have uploaded a scan of the print but have succeeded in doing so into the wrong Gallery. Please could a Mod. move it to the Exchange Gallery.

Thanks, Mike

It's a good feeling not to be in a rush and also not to be the last to send theirs, for once!

And it arrived in my letterbox today, which isn’t bad going!

Terry has sent 2 postcard sized prints taken in the formal garden of Priory Park, one of his local haunts. The formal design of the garden is also reflected in the composition of the subject matter with predominantly vertical and horizontal planes. The photos have been sympathetically printed, combining diffuse overcast lighting together with sensitive processing and the best qualities of the Ilford Art 300 paper, all adding an air of pictorialism.

Many thanks, Terry. A successful day out and in the darkroom!

Thanks Frank Glad you
Like them

It's always good to hear when prints arrive at their destination and thank you Marty for the comments.

I'm quick this month sending my offering out and have even put them in the gallery in good time, although they appear a bit softer than the originals - but isn't that often the case?
