    something fishy

    Image

    Taken well after sunset a long steady stream of fish ( probably Australian salmon ) head out from under the Portarlington pier.

    Way to soft and creative for my current stock outlet

    Just a fun image for me.

    I am somewhat tempted to get it printed. thanks for the comments.

    It is a bit of a surprise, they were awesome to see streaming out from under the pier ( except that I had no fishing gear with me :cry: )

    I'd agree that a print - in fact an effing H U G E print - is prolly where this may find life.

    Would you run a noise reduction over it or keep it noisy ?

    Gloss surface ?

    Harman Baryta Gloss is like old unglazed glossy and reveals good D-Max and colour.

    Noise reduction may adversely affect some of the subtleties of separation - particularly in the all-important low val;ues for this shot.

    Just my 2 bob's worth.

    You can add noise with filters and raw, it must be cool, leave it in.

    Dug,

    This is one of the papers I print on at home with my Epson 3800.

    I buy the paper from Image Science in Melbourne and I know they do large exhibition prints in-house and have an excellent reputation. As for cost you'll have to give them a ring.


    Cheers
    Bob

    I imagined a non gloss canvas print . . and yes keep the noise. maybe try to clear up the fringing between tones.. but that could be ths result of high compression which I know you use for images you put up on the www.

    PS still loving it :-)

    Yes,

    Image Science would be well worth a try.

    There are other papers but I am not up to speed with the latest and greatest.

    I've looked at this a couple of times today & I'm not sure how to comment. It's just one of those photos you can just stare at for hours.
    Just amazing Dug
