    Good to see the Georgia Mafia out today... Thanks for the input--as with Eric, I'd like to see some pictures of that project at some point. Otherwise, I definitely see the "archival" issue as a continuum--those of y'all who are making cash money (or else or sitting on your version of Moonrise, Hernandez) have at the very least market forces to consider in a way I do not. (No, no...it's true.) I'll take reasonably priced and marginally tasteful any day of the week in this age of diminished expectations.

    Here ya go ...

    Print is trimmed to 11.5x15.5 - foam core is 1/8 inch less all the way around, frame is 16x20 so a little over 2 inches all the way around. the depth from glass to print is about 1/4 inch from what I can tell. Note this iphone shot is out of focus the print is much sharper.


    funny story - I was admiring a shot by another photographer in North GA and noticed his image was similar but something was different. I read his caption and realized it was the same place. I pulled up my iphone shot and it nearly matched his shot but knew the one at home was still different. I got home and compared the two shots and realized I printed it backwards. I actually like the way the image reads better in this print.

    Here is a link to his shot. https://www.landscapesbyjack.com/Pho...te/i-W7Bs4WS/A

    Eric, I was up in Blue Ridge recently and I saw a print in a gallery of Helton Creek falls. Iconic, of course, but it was mirrored left-right! Very jarring, as I know that waterfall well.

    Ha, great story--I'm not sure if I'm sensitive to the rotated scene, but I do think the illuminated tree trunks at the top of the frame takes yours out of the realm of the ordinary.

    Otherwise, thanks so much for the pic--certainly a classy way to present a silver print...the architectural symmetry really adds a (literally) different dimension to the emotional valence of the image itself.

    I also see all the "spirits" in this image. Left side Asian man in traditional robes with fu-manchu , Left middle grey Shark coming out of white water, Middle right - black bird sticking its face out of the falls. There are other tones that have faces and a pair of eyes look at you from within the water. Or my eyesight is getting worse and my brain just makes this stuff up.
