    Thanks, we've got quite a few frame shops in town here in Knoxville--one or two ought to be able to steer me in the right direction.

    float frames for alt prints?

    I happened to run across some Youtube videos of watercolorists who use float frames to display their work, and they began by using an adhesive to glue the paper to panels made of thin birch plywood...

    Re: post your trees!

    Really nice work, Patrick--I especially like the out-of-focus areas in both corners; it might be worth exploring toning options to exploit both the foreground and background.

    Definitely sharing the love for both images, but I think I'd crop the top 1/8th or so for each, even slightly cutting off the extreme part of the tree's canopy in the second.
