Nice use of perspective on the dome shot. Would make many less familiars wonder what it was.

Been neglecting my photo posting here. Finally uploaded a backlog of shows to Flickr so now I just have 2 fox trips to edit. Heading to the Khutzeymateen tomorrow for a week with grizzlies so hopefully I'll have more editing work soon.

I thought Flickr-based images had the EXIF data built in - or is that something the user can disable? I was just curious to see some of the "specs" behind the photos, 'tis all.

Yes and yes. EXIF data is shown by default if it was included in the image. All of mine should show EXIF. My 12mm and 14mm 2.8 Rokinon lenses are unchipped manuals so they don't provide aperture (always 2.8 to 4 in concerts) or lens make.

It's been a while but my wife and I just got back from a long weekend of day hiking and night eating in one of favorite places. ;) It was sort of a last hoorah before we welcome our first baby in a few months. Since we weren't drinking much on this trip (at least she wasn't hehe) we got up for sunrise on a couple of occasions. It was totally worth it. This was a first attempt at processing but I think the base is there for a good printable shot.

Exceptional shot with all the elements lined up just right. I've spent days there without anything near that.

Processing looks good to me. The only thing I would consider is a bit tighter crop of the left side. If you crop to where the mountains and reflection just fit in the frame then the moose is closer to 1/3 in and more prominent plus the grass at the lower left is less dominant. That's pretty much just personal preference though. The left trees do frame it nicely when uncropped.

You should definitely print and hang that one as a 16x24 or larger.

I'm hoping to get through my backlog of fox kits and grizzlies soon. Had a nice trip to the Khutzeymateen with at least 26 different grizzlies spotted. Whittling down the 7500 or so shots right now.

Thanks a bunch. It's not a bad idea with the cropping. I like to keep the ratio and I'm afraid of pinching the top and bottom too much. I'll play with it though. The grass is a bit funny here as it wasn't my first choice. We thought we were early but there were several people already set up when I got there. On top of it, the tripod I used was a hand me down and turned out to be broken on the bottom part, limiting the extension available. So I was sort of stuck in the grass. But I don't mind it because it was definitely part of it all.

7500 shots. Yikes!

I'd definitely keep the 2:3 ratio either way. I think the tall grass makes the shot better than a bare reflection. Adds depth and setting to the photo.

So does anyone have thoughts for the best way to print a landscape might be? Should I go with a paper print and then have it framed?

That's mainly personal preference and what suits your decor.

I've transitioned to metal and canvas for personal display and sales (aside from bagged matted prints). I'd probably do a larger glossy metal for your Schwabacher's shot.

For framing I tend to prefer simple black frames with single white or black mats or double white and black mats. That's more of a photographer/museum/gallery approach though and not suited to every home. Whatever the frame I suggest non-glare glass if there's any chance of reflections.

With paper prints the main choice is between a minilab c print (traditional photo paper) or archival inkjet (fine art paper with archival pigment ink). Archival inkjet prints offer better longevity, wider gamut, slightly better sharpness, and greater paper options. Most of the good online labs offer both c prints and archival inkjet prints with varying types of papers. Backing options are another consideration, but you can probably skip that with good framing. The print will be the cheapest part of framing though so you can always swap it later.

Do you mean you would print on metal itself? I've done it a couple of times but it seems to rob a little sharpness and make things a little darker to my eye. But that's been through mpix solely. I was thinking I'd try bayphoto in this instance.

But yeah, this is for the Teton shot.
