    Going back through my pictures from the Faroe Islands this past summer, and I came across this one that I re-edited:

    How do you mount that on the wood? Looks great!

    Thanks. It's pretty easy. I use reclaimed barnwood/fencewood that I harvested from an old collapsed barn and around my yard as I tear down horse stalls and fences.

    I attach the wood together using metal brackets. Then I use some picture hanging d-rings and attach wire to those.
    The metal prints I use come with a mounting hangar that I attach to the wood and cut off the extra screw length using a Dremel.

    I really like the industrial, high resolution metal prints mounted on the reclaimed wood. It's a nice dichotomy and adds some size to the final product. I use a matte finish on the metal to avoid glare, but I also think it gives it a more timeless look.








    One from my house posted a few posts ago on a previous page:





    This one is pretty big. It's secured to the wall using the wire but snugged up agains the wall for a clean, flush mount using screws and washers through the wood into drywall hangers (4).

    Oh nice. Yeah, thatís a great non-traditional way to mount that stuff. Printing on metal makes sense. I was thinking maybe you mount them on foam core or something. Metal will probably hold up better over time.

    Where do you get the metal prints made?

    I use AdoramaPix. I've had good luck and so far the custie service has been solid. The Minarets photo I posted above originally arrived with the slightest bend where they attached the wall mount. But from the side, in the "gallery lights," it becomes noticeable. They sent me a return label and my new print arrived just after I sent the old one back.

    I've had good luck with the paper prints as well. I've never used their canvas wraps. I know many people here like wraps; I've never been a fan.

    I really like Miller's Professional Imaging but they can be a little cost prohibitive. But man, their stuff is good.

    And just to keep the POTD thread true:

    Thanks. Those two girls are 4 days apart.


    I know I've posted this vantage a few times with different moods... Here's a late afternoon take. 3 frame vert-o-rama.

    Now that you mention it, perhaps my shot of the girls should be entered. I forgot about the MPC and truly the variety of colors is one of the things I like about that shot, but I suppose there is a red/white motif in there...

    Decidedly not red/white:

    splitter, what camera are you shooting on? Your colors always look so good to me. Not overly done but really punchy and nice.

    Aim for the chopping block. If you aim for the wood, you will have nothing. Aim past the wood, aim through the wood.

    Thanks. I shoot with a D810. In post, I am super-conscientious about the coloring and WB. I adjust luminance and color saturation after adjusting channel saturation. And I'm never really happy with "auto" WB. It's almost always too warm for my taste. So I'll hit the auto, usually meet it halfway (give or take), and let the orange and yellow tones do some work for the warmth in the image. Finally, I boost the vibrance (usually about 10) after all is said and done.

    I'm typically shooting with two lenses: a Sigma 24mm 1.4 Art and a Nikon 85mm 1.8.

    And for most landscapes, I'm bracketing a few images for as much information as possible.
