A friend of mine showed my a metal print they had done of a group of Toronto buildings. It was stunning so my question are their certain subjects that work better than others for Metal Prints IE; landscapes or is just about anything that looks good on a glossy print able to be printed to a Metal Print. Here is a shot from Newfoundland and a landscape type setting was wondering if this is worth getting on Metal as far as it looking good not worried about the price. 2nd image is local with not alot of subjects in the shot but very colourful.

Shots w/ color really pop on metal; I think the first one would probably come out quite well...the second one's a little bit 'flat' tonally, and probably wouldn't be worth the price of the metal print, IMO.

I just had this printed on metal at WHCC. I bumped the saturation more than I normally would and it turned out great

The local photography shop guys suggested I bump saturation and clarity a wee bit for metal prints. I followed their advice and it came out great. I gave them away so I can’t post an example tho. :-/

If you are talking about the prints on Kodak Metallic Paper, or Pearl as Fuji call their almost identical finish then as well as bright well saturated images it also works really well for black and white images too. A couple of years ago I got some samples of the Fuji Pearl at a photography show, and one of them was a black and white portrait. It was a very compelling print, the trouble is that you really cannot show the effect well in a photo or scan of the print. I had this image printed on Fuji Pearl at 30×20 and anybody who sees it is usually very impressed.

My daughter has recently started to take my old 20D along to the car club she goes to with her boyfriend. She took this a couple of weeks ago, and the owner of the car has asked to buy a copy as a print, which is going to be on the Pearl paper too. Yes it is indeed a very saturated image.

Still waiting for it to come back from the lab, but expect it to be superb. I normally do straight glossy prints ost of the time, but for some subjects this type of paper just adds that final something.

We're talking about prints on metal, not prints on metallic paper.

Almost every print I've had made over the past four years has been on metal. . That's what clients want. . That's what sells. . That's what the gallery wants. . That's what I prefer, personally.

Prints on paper are a thing of the past, for me.

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".
