Thanks everyone, just clicked the button for my first 20x30. Hope it comes out nice, if not the zoo is not to far.

Give us the details about the printer.

mpix.com is what I use. So far I've been happy with it.

Can I ask for everyone's honest opinion and pretend you don't know me if that helps :)

I like this one, but not sure if I like it enough to print 20x30 or a 12x18

http://www.pbase.com/a​rizona85224/image/7856​9784 (external link)

Okay, I'm going to be a total brat, but you asked... I like the picture and it's a nice shot.. I wouldn't print 20x30 because it isn't perfect.. but thats my opinion and we all have different views of what is perfect.. so don't be offended.. okay.

I would love it more if you shooting from a bit of a different angle and the leaves were not covering part of his body. I like the leaves in the foreground though.. they look good there, but I want to see more of this creature..

Okay.. I said it... sorry.. :( hope your not offended. But print the 12x18 because its a cool shot, and you like it.....Save the 20x30 for something
spectacular!

Now I've completely cut myself off from this group, eveyone will decide that I'm mean...... But you asked for honesty...

OOps... I spoke to late... Ouch.....! Now I'm really going to be the outcast....:rolleyes: I'm sure you'll love it... I'm just a tough critic... on my own stuff usually, but well, I'm onery this morning.

Let us know how it prints.. which lab are you using? Did I see Mpix? I've never used them.

Kristy, I am not offended at all. I'm glad you said what you did because in a way I feel the same way about it as you do. That's the only way I can improve is for people to be honest if I ask for feedback. Thanks for letting me have it because you just helped me out. :)

I bet it prints beautifully.. I've done 20x30s on a couple of newborn/family shots and they were beautiful. I normally use WHCC, but recently sent an order in to McKenna Pro.. It should be her today, so I'm anxious to compare print quality and color... McKenna uses fuji paper which seems to have richer color than Kodak papers, but what do I know..

Did you order a linen texture on it or anything? You know what would be really cool.... check this out...... http://orders.mckennap​ro.com/emailNewProduct​March2007.html (external link)

Do you need advice about grills, pots and pans for this cookout/viewing?;) We can help you spend your money easily.:twisted:


Of course I'm just teasing. I hope your print turns out well and I would love to see it.

I would like to know which is a good brand because the ones I do buy seem to go bad on me or they aren't as none stick as they say.

I'll show you guys. I would like a panoramic of Horseshoe Bend to hang on my wall, the picture I took last time I was rushed and it was just a mess.

Have grill will travel! You don't get out of it that easily! Also don't need pans, potato salad and slaw go great with burgers!

We need to celebrate the great unveiling!:D

Nah - it is all about how you phrase it.

Anyone can point out defects - but giving suggestions on how to make improvements is what it is tough - I am always laughing when I see some of the stuff that comes out of the camera! As long as there are suggestions on how to overcome and/or notice potential defects before the shot - that is what it is all about -

If someone says - "Your bug has soft focus" - and that is it - wrong. If you say -"Your bug seems to have soft focus, and I know how tough it is to get a shot, you could always experiment take one series at one DOF and the next series at a greater DOF and that might bring the important parts into focus." Something like that --

Well - everyone has an opinion - and this is mine -

I applaud our friend for being brave enough to ask! I further applaud Kristy for being brave enough to respond and she should be allowed at the burger fest to see the giant print! :eek: :eek:
