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.

Yes chromaluxe aluminum metal prints. There will be less resolution with a dye sublimation print which is why they are best used in larger print sizes. Archival inkjets will have a wider color gamut and longer life (100 vs 50-60 years) as well. There are metal inkjet options which allow higher resolution, but they lack scratch and water resistance.

Acrylic prints are another option that can provide higher resolution than metal while still providing a clean look. They are pricey though and can be prone to scratching.

Below are a few pictures from my recent trip to Iceland. Going to start with some general landscapes and then move on to more specific subjects...

The photos below are the Strokkur geyser at Geysir, Iceland. It erupts every 5-10 minutes or so. A couple of times it "misfired" and had two small eruptions about thirty seconds apart, or so, but most of the ones while we were there were impressive and probably over 50 ft into the air.

I was shooting in high speed, at about a rate of 10 frames per second. The first five images are sequential, the sixth image was four frames later and the last was eight more frames after that. I didn't include an image of it at its apex because it wasn't too much higher than the last photo below.

We recently returned from 10 days in Argentina, mostly spent in the southern Patagonia region. It was an amazing trip. I've been processing photos. One interesting bit is that I brought along my Google Pixel 2 and used it as a point and shoot. The image quality is nearly consistent enough to make me want to leave the bigger camera home...nearly.

This is a pic of Mt Fitz Roy on the border of Argentina and Chile. It's a crap shoot to ever get clear enough skies to see it so we were grateful for this view even though that cloud over the peak regenerated all day long, never allowing for a clear picture.

Beautiful. Was that with the point and shoot or the big camera?

I got into wildlife photography just over a year ago, and I've been passionate about it ever since. I meant to look for this thread a while ago, but I forgot about it. I attached a photo of a male Cardinal that I took about a week ago.

That's great. What camera do you have? Wildlife seems to me something that requires good gear with big lenses. I have a friend who really loves it. He spends a lot of time and resources on gear and likes to test it out at the zoo. It's too much for me to carry on a hike though.

Thanks! I use to shoot with a Nikon D3400, but I just upgraded to the Nikon D500 with the Nikkor 200-500mm telephoto lens about a month ago.

Stories please.

I had about a month span to visit some jobsites between Texas & Cali so had some extra time to hike between work. No real crazy stories this go round, but as usual I met some incredible people along the route. I will say though that for the first time I really thought I wasn't going to complete a hike, haha. We went up to Trampas Lakes in NM which is 11 miles RT. Stupid me didn't bring any food--my energy reserves were drained and i was dragging and slumping 2 miles from the top. Weirdest feeling is being so tired that going to sleep in the snow starts sounding nice. Last time i'll do that!


BTW, your Mt. Fitz Roy picture is mind-boggingly gorgeous :rolleys:

I have that setup as well. It's great! I've had the D500 for a couple of years, but only got the lenses in the last couple of months. Did a bit of research and originally wanted the versatility of the 80-400, but the 200-500 graded out really well and was so much more affordable.
