I must have mentioned once or twice somewhere, how underrated I think that this paper is and how much I like it...

Both of the two postcards contain Highland cattle, which are one of my favourite animals, of which I saw a few whilst living in Scotland, some time ago now. One print is very dark and Buzz admits to have found it hard to print, as both the mother and her young were in the shadow of the forest. To be honest Buzz, even under bright light I find them hard to spot, but thanks for the effort involved, for most of us would have given up much sooner, I think.

The second postcard print is my favourite of the three prints, as I do love Highland cattle and this print is a lovely head and shoulders portrait of one, looking straight at the camera as well. A great shot indeed!

So, thank you once more for all the effort that you put in to your prints for me. They are all much appreciated.

Thanks for your kind words, Terry! And indeed, you're solely responsible for me wanting to print more on satin paper...
It's been a real struggle to get the mother with her young printed even half decent, but I thought I'd throw it in anyway.
A good reason for me to go back to this place next spring, to hopefully capture a better version.
I'll upload them to the gallery later today!

My pleasure Buzz.

And great to hear that you want to print more on RC satin paper now and I hope to slowly convert a few others, given time.

I just received a real wonderful print form Mike Heller. He photographed fresh shorn sheep in a shelter at an rather cold day. Most impressing was one of the sheep looked directly to Mike or it's camera.

Thank you very much

What I really like about the print exchange rounds is that you don’t just get a send and receive photo’s but that you get to tell and hear more about the photographers journey and the process behind each of the images.
Tony’s sent an 8x10” contact print, made with a diy camera, on Foma film, using a brass lens with the lens cap as shutter and guessing the exposure! It’s turned out exceptionally well, also by his own admission, and in many ways, the whole journey chimes with my own which makes it all the more personal.

Great to see you back in the PE rounds, Tony, and many thanks for the print and the inspiration!

Regards,
Martin
