    Awesome shot!

    I haven't had much luck with night/long exposure brackets. I probably should go ahead and pop for the IR remote for my XTi, or at the very least a cable release.

    Beautiful Picture. What was your exposure?

    Thanks BP.

    It was shot as a 7 exposure bracket at 200 ISO, f/5.6. (1/2 sec, 1 sec, 2 sec, 4 sec, 8 sec, 15 sec, 30 sec). I compiled the HDR from just four of the exposures (I think I used the 1/2 sec, 2 sec, 4 sec, 30 sec for this one). Because of the time, the stars had started streaking in the HDR image, so I layered the 8 sec exposure in post because the stars were the brightest and sharpest on that exposure.

    I had this image printed. 20"x30" on metallic paper and heavy matte-board (kind of like you did of that other one, Sam). Mpix did it for me, and it turned out freakin' AWESOME.

    I've been sort of looking for a good print-shop to do some high-quality stuff for me from some of my captures. ValleyFan had suggested White House Custom Colour, but their application process to become a customer takes a little while to complete. In the meantime, I decided to try Mpix.com's service.

    I had this image printed. 20"x30" on metallic paper and heavy matte-board (kind of like you did of that other one, Sam). It turned out freakin' AWESOME. Easy to start an account, good prices, and they turned the job around in less than a week! It looks EXACTLY like it does on my color-corrected monitor, too! They just did a fantastic job for me!

    I'd highly recommend them!

    Nice! I would be interested to see a full color image like that on metallic. Having never used mpix myself, why did you go with them, better prices? Did you like them?

    ---EDIT---
    Ahhh, never mind, all questions answered in the other thread

    I'd thought WHCC was taking forever in getting back to me. Turns out, my email spam filter got three of their messages they'd sent requesting test images. So I sent off a batch of five this morning. I imagine they'll come back just fine, and when they do, I'll be able to verify them and use them as a print house.

    I used a local outfit that I've been using since the pre-digital days called Fromex to do a few prints last month and they looked great. One was for someone else and I had no problem with the quality at all, in fact the photo was from a crop to begin with and it looked great. Their software allows you to upload the pics online and since they are in Long Beach, I can go and pick the prints up the next day (or later in the afternoon if I call and ask nicely).

    I think it's owned by a black guy and a Mexican, hence the name. (j/k)

    Maybe I'll order from one of these outfits and compare the quality/price/convenience if I get more demand for prints.

    Fromex...hah. I remember them from WAY way back. Didn't they pretty much put all the little Photomat kiosks out of business??
