  1. Those are fantastic pictures! I think I want to get one and blow it up in some form whether it is canvas wrap or just a regular print. Have you ever tried the ones where they print / mount them on metal?

  2. Everglades Storm is my favorite,with Foggy Sunrise 1 coming in second, but it was a hard choice. Very good photos.

  3. I have no experience with metal prints, but they’re popular so people must like them. The print vendor has a money-back guarantee so if you don’t like it you can send it back and only be out shipping costs.

    Thanks for the kind words.

    Your photography is really getting good Jon. What are you shooting with these days? And have you read any books that helped? I bought one of my daughters a Cannon EOS-is for Christmas, and I’ve been looking at photography books to help her out. She’s talking about taking a photography course in the spring, when she can afford it.

  5. Thanks, Mike. I’m using the same Canon DSLR I’ve been using for a couple of years, and a Pentax K-01.

    I can’t think of any specific books. The basic technical stuff is easily learned online. Books on composition and lighting might be helpful. I would check Amazon reviews. It may also be worth looking into whether any photo groups are available in your area through meetup.com.

  6. I have several photos printed on metal and I can tell you that I really like the way they look and how easy they are to hang. When you consider no framing costs compared to the paper prints, the cost is about the came.

    Now that I think about it, I think the last 4 or 5 pictures I’ve put up in my house have been metal prints.

    Moab Sunrise would look terrific as a metal print with the bright colors. It is also my favorite. Dragonfly and Mountain Meadow get “Honorable Mentions”

    Is there a way I can post copy of one of my photos to the comments? I have one saved that I printed on metal recently.

  7. Thanks for the info, Jeff.

    You should be able to post an image by using the “img src=URL” tag if you can get your pic online somewhere. Or email a jpg to me and I’ll post it.

  8. Thanks Michael! I am very happy with the way it looks on metal. Bright colors and/or high contrast seem to work really well on metal. I think portraits would suffer in comparison to traditional prints.
