Sorry for the delay in getting this swap kicked off, but I have been inundated with work the last month.

But here it is, Print Swap 8.

Go here for the FAQ: http://home.comcast.net/~seaskate/index_files/Page361.htm

These swaps have, for the most part, gone off extremely well. Almost all participants have been great about it.

Notice that I said "for the most part" and "almost all" participants have kept up their end of the bargain. Sadly, there are now two members that are banned from further Print Swap participation. They have just refused to keep their promise to send a print.

Please read the FAQ. If you cannot send a print within two weeks of the drawing then DON'T SIGN UP. This ain't rocket science folks, there is no fine print, read the FAQ. Sign-ups will continue here for about a week. Then I'll close the sign-ups and draw the names, posting them here as usual.

As always, remember to put "Print Swap" in the header of your sign-up email to me. If you do not receive a "You are in" return email message from me that means I did not get your email request.

VERY IMPORTANT: If you have participated before, include the names of your previous swap partners so I can re-draw names if you should draw a duplicate partner.

Thanks, and this is really turning into a fun event for (almost) everybody, me included.

All messages should now be posted to this thread and NOT to the Print Swap 7 thread.

Tom

PS: Joe, please un-sticky Print Swap 7 and sticky this one.

Edit: I've changed my mind, because of the size requirements of the print, but I will participate in one of the next swaps.

question: are the prints posted to the forum as well or is this exercise strictly between sender and recipient?

Chris,

The participants are the only recipients.

However, if the sender wants to post what he/she sent in this forum or in their gallery here for all to see, that is fine too.

Please note, the recipient should honor the copyright of the creator of the print. That means do not post a copy here (or anywhere else) UNLESS you have the creators permission. And yes, I know copyright laws are different in different countries, but we are following the Bern Convention on copyright in this swap as it is the most universal of all the regulations covering image reproduction.

I have received your print few hours ago: a wonderful shot indeed, it will have a special place in my photo albums.
Thanks also to Tom, who has organized a great activity: I look forward to subscribing to the Print Swap 9.

Got my print from Manolo today; incredible quality, indeed!
It wasn't until the receipt of the print that I recognized that I probably could have done significantly more with respects to reinforcing my packaging...

Thanks, Manolo; thanks, Tom.



Manolo: sent you an email, the print for you is on its way.

I had a pre-scheduled trip to Grand Rapids/Ann Arbor happen right in the middle of Print Swap 8, but I have just signed off on my print and will ship tomorrow to Marc! This was my opportunity to resurrect a darkroom and actually produce something in silver (love the smell of fixer on a Sunday afternoon!). It has been 25 years since I last printed, but it is just like riding a bicycle. A bit rusty, but it is great to be back.

Rafael

Sounds great Larry! I can't wait to see the result. Your print is in the mail and should be getting close to the West Coast by now.

Sven-
Your print is finally in the mail as of this morning. No joke.

On a completely different note, check out this (awful, badly stitched) quickie I shot off my front porch this morning! Honest, the flood level marker on the bridge a half mile downstream read 42 feet.....

Bryce,
no prob. My print is on its way since last week.
does it ever stop to rain there ? wish I would have a bit more cool air here.
cheers

Bryce
11-13-2006, 23:30
Sven-
Our problem right now is that the weather can't make up its mind. Sure, it's raining a lot. But the big problem is that snow builds up in the mountains, then a warm spell melts it all. Looks like it may happen again in the next few days.
For whatever its worth, this is the worst flooding in 16 years here.
Strangely this scenery has made me feel I should use color film. I guess I just can't explain that.

Remy,

Oh, yes, it did. Very nice print it is too.


I am looking forward to receiving yours.

I hope you receive it, Tom. Last print swap I had to send my print two or three times to the States. And I never received my partner's print, sadly, even though he too sent his several times IIRC.

I received a very nice print from Marc, it is a very H.C-B photo moment! Hopefully mine will not suffer the usual US/Canada crossing trauma.

Thank you, Sven!

I received two wonderful prints from Larry today. Both are stunning and will soon be framed and on my wall. Thanks Larry!!!

And thanks to Tom for organising the swap. This was my first Print Swap. It will certainly not be my last. The Print Swap really is one of the things that makes RFF such a special place on the internet. Thanks for all of your work Tom!!!

Remy,

I had just about given up, but your print "Amsterdam From Above" FINALLY arrived today. Judging by the postmark, it took almost two months.

Tom, that's good news.
Just yesterday I was thinking whether you had received it or not.
Somehow I get the idea my mail (for and from me) is intercepted by some secret agency. If it ever arrives, it arrives way way over due date. :)
