I am giving Mpix a try. I ordered a 16x20 print yesterday. I will see how it turns out. If I like what I get I am using them for my prints. This will be my first digital print. I am a little leary but the image is good. Monte.
I assume this is a shot taken with your D200. If you feel like sharing that information, which image did you send to Mpix? Care to show it here?
I am sorry I cannot seem to get the image to post here Frans. If you want to see it is in my folder at the not.contaxg pages . Just find one of my images on the front page then click on the folder name under my name which is under the image when you click on it.The folder is named 'Small Town Iowa" From there it is under "American Gothic House". The address is http://not.contaxg.com/
Thanks for the instructions; I found it easily and was impressed with your picture. Never knew that the painting's background was a real building!
Thank you Frans. I got an email that said it was shipped today. The one thing nice about digital is the ability to experment with exposure in different light condition. That picture was shot -1/3 stop under F10 125sec. If you happen to go back there sometime "bridge 26" is another I like which I will probabaly print. I have shot about 300 images so far many I won't keep but it doesnot matter with digital. The ones I like are all that matter to me. Thanks for looking, Monte.
Bridge 26 is a very nice shot, Monte. I particularly like the angled shadow of the bridge on the trees across the river and the way it combines with the bridge itself to point out towards the open fields beyond. It's a wonderfully evocative shot which proves that you don't have to confine yourself to the "magic hour" to be able to do nice things with light and shadow. Good shooting!
Thank you for the nice comment. For me this is one that proves digital can do it. Monte
Frans, I just recieved my print was very pleased with it. Tones were very good. It only took two days to get to me. It was packaged very well. I ordered two more tonight. One was "iowa Storm" and other was "Bridge 26". I hope to sell some prints before long people have already asked me if I would. Anyway just wanted to share my experience with Mpix Labds. Monte.
Thanks for the comment Chip. I just tried a film scan to print from Mpix and it came out great. I am very pleased with the quick service and quality. Monte
