I'm in again as well. Really enjoyed getting the postcards from all over the world. Now I need to decide if I want to go the Moo route again or do wet prints.

missed the first one - must have been when I was off the forum for months due to work load.
Count me in.

OK!
As of this morning we are at 28 people.
And I will be sending y'all an email to confirm I got yours later today.
A few things:
IF we get more than 50 folks, I think I will split the total number into groups as evenly split as I can. A mix of addresses so no group is all US or all EU (or whatever) addresses, so the every one gets as even a blend of domestic and foreign addresses as I can make it. At that point, I will then give all of us the choice of how many of the groups they want to participate in.
Ilia,
I like your suggestion of a google doc. with all the addresses in it. I could then just send the link to every one. And, if/when there are corrections to be made, I can either send just the corrected address or edit the document and let every one know.

The last minute changes/additions were a bit confusing but I'm not sure if there is really much I can do to avoid that. I suppose I could be ruthless about the closing date but I'm not sure that I want to be that tyrannical for what is intended as some simple fun for every one--including me!

Woo hoo!
Rob

Ben showed us the postcards from the first round at an RFF get-together in Boston, and I regretted not having participated. So I'm in, email sent.

Quick question...
Does this mean current photos, photos taken during the postcard period, older photos, or... ?

TIA

It means the photo you would like to use. Old, new, future, it is up to you.

Thx Rover

Now I notice folks are using the Moo folks. I use them for business cards (mini & std size). So I could mix up the images and send out random cards. Is that okay? Or should I send everyone the same image?

Yeah I know, newbie questions but I'd rather be embarrassed up front rather than later.

Oh one other thing... Do folks like to see the exif info?

TIA

In the first round the idea was, that everyone sends the same image to everybody else, so that we all get one copy of every image sent.

I don't know the rule for this one, but I would prefer it this way. At least, I will do so.

I think, exif is not so important, although some people did wrote camera and some other technical info in their postcards. But I think, this could be done here in the thread, because I'm more interested in the image itself.

Okay 'krötenblender' everyone gets same image and I'm in agreement "it's about the image."

I'm in and I've selected 50 candidates. Now which ONE. Color or B&W... oh the angst.

You'll find the one (and use the other in the next 49 rounds... )

I think, I have some candidates, too.

Oops! I was not very clear, but I think a major part of this project is that we each send one photo to every one participating.
Rich, good questions and no embarrassment applies to you. (for me, on the other hand, a little. See above. )
If you want to include EXIF info, then certainly do so. On the cards I sent, I included pretty minimal info. Mainly because there just is not a lot of room on the half of the card for any message. In fact, I started by hand writing all the stuff on the back--name, address, and a short message--but that quickly changed. I ended up hand addressing my cards and printing the message using a font I had made from my handwriting.

As of this morning, we are at 36 people!

If you have sent me an email and I have not responded to you, I apologize and could you send me another, please.

And for the photograph I send this time, I hope to do better than the last time. I like the photo I used but it just didn't do very well at the small size of a postcard. I am sending off a dozen or so rolls of film this week and likely will be picking from those once I get the scans back. Hopefully something much stronger graphically than the shot I used last time.

Rob

Thanks for the clarifications Rob.

Culled the candidates down to twenty. Then sent the lot off to CVS (never done this before) for 4x6 prints to see what might look best at this size.

Postcard papers

I was planning to go silver based in the darkroom. Paper choices seem limited to Multigrade IV and Mulitgrade Premium. Differences between the two?

I'm probably going with a panoramic shot and am trying to find out how best to send it using the Kyrgyz postal service. Postcards may not be the best idea, maybe I'll just stick it in an envelope.
