Hi again, I just had two 8x10in prints made from a online shop, the bottlebrush, and

the Autumn leaves above.

Both were very good with the leaves being the better of the two as a result ofmy

more advanced work in photo-shop. It was stunning. The color, detail, sharpness,

and lack of noise would be hard to beat.

Can anyone tell me if they have printed a pic bigger without any sign of quality

loss?.

I set the res at 320 dpi for the print and kept the size to 35cm wide.The prints are

the biggest I can get online in the digital format, I can go a inch or 2 wider but have to

crop.(something I avoid).I would like to go bigger for a exhibitionbut cost and

possible drop off ofquality deter. Cheers

If you have photoshop there is a technique were you can print to very large size without lossing much quality. It is in a CS book i have at home and if you want i can explain the technique when i get hold of the book

Sorry ... only printed to A4 .... so hard to comment.

I suspect that some shots could go A3 but until I've actually done it, it's a pure guess. Maybe I should print two halves of a shot to A4 and join them .... that would give a decent guide to the potential! However, I only have a 600dpi printer...that might limit the experiment.

Cheers, KK.

Thanks guys, I guess I will have to find out for myself, never mind.

This pic is another of the Autumn series, is it worth getting a exhibition printfrom. ?.

Note

This pic is also on page 2 of this post/ The above has better sharpness.

You have a great eye for a pic and constatly prove how good the camera (photographer using it?) is.

Hi again,I have now got 4 prints done only 8x10 but they look good mounted on A3

mounts.

We are in the middle of winter in NZ so I am low on subjects. This is one more from

the Autumn series. I liked the Jet Ski pics KK, also the two newnew bikes.

Quite a good job on the Art on the beach also.

This pic was vertical and quite nice, however I preferred it to slant into the left

corner. I screwed it around with the crop tool and cloned in the white areas with

the .blue sky, it has squared up the pic somewhat as well aka the Rollie TLR.

Cheers.

Hi Sefton

Thanks for the comments on my shots. Glad you liked them.

I like the newest leaf shot ...... you certainly can find the nice ones. My only comment for improvement(?) might be to clone out the partial leaf on the right.

It may be mid-winter there ...but mid-summer here and the sun was baking the landscape, me and the insects earlier on in the week. Naturally, I was taking the opportunity to view some Scottish cousinsto our English Dragonflies, while I was on aholiday break. Here's a nice male Cordulegaster boltonii ...or Golden-ringed dragonfly to you! No supplementary lenses ... just macro and a fair amount of optical zoom.

Cheers, KK.

Thanks Kk. I love the dragonfly, you do them so well, Its not only the focus, exposure

etc. but the work involvedfinding them in the first place, and then,getting them to

set theright pose, and then to hold it , for the shot. I will send a pic of the only

dragonfly on my computer, a snapshottaken with my Nikon F 90x, now retired.

I had thought of removing the leaf but decided to leave it in.

A note, after working on my pic for some time I decided to flag it. The picturelooked

better in small print than on screen. Sorry.
