    Yes, wow, that's a wonderful shot... The spherical format gives it a really magical, dream-like quality.

    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    Thanks Peter!

    I made a 15" print last night. I'm leaning towards a circular mat. I think it'll be unique, and one friend suggested perhaps even a circular frame too.

    Either way I want to get a circular mat cut to different print sizes to make a physical "mask," allowing the print to look more like the above scan with a white surround, rather than being suspended in black which I think is a bit depressive.

    Very nice, though unless there are a lot of hobbits on the ground there in N Ga. I think I'd like to see this one drymounted on 16x24 gatorboard, with maybe 40% bottom weight. (FWIW, I generally don't like the negative space/museum look, I'm thinking floating this one in space like the proverbial Big Blue Marble might be arresting.)

    I like how well you got the tonal separation in this image. Not always easy to do that.

    Hello! Missed this post somehow. Very cool. Wonderful image...I like how it does not over-play the fisheye effect. Having that tree trunk on the left is perfect...and I like that the composition, while not centered, places one's eye in the image's center -- and since there is nothing in the center to grab one's eye, one is free to wander back into the rest of the environment. It keeps the image active. Pretty nice 'test image'!

    A good friend does a lot of work with the circular image...an interesting departure from his earlier panoramic work. Going out into the field with him is fun -- his camera 'sees' so differently! I have a couple of his prints in my living room.

    He has enlarged them to mural size (digitally) and made large silver gelatin prints. One of his is on my wall (living room) is a 14" dia image on a 15x19 horizontal black frame, with the non-image portions of the paper exposed to black. The framing is an interesting choice, normally would not be my first choice but works well specifically with this image.

    With your image (and if it were mine to frame), I would tend towards a more traditional approach. Printed on silver gelatin paper, window matted square, but on a vertical rectangular frame. Square frames can work very well, but they also can tend to over-play the form of the circle. But what is more comforting than a square box containing a circle of warm pizza, cut into lovely triangles? Excuse me...still on my diet...

    Another way to get white around the image area is to make a circular mask to lay on the photopaper. You could make a mask slight larger than the image if you wanted a thin black line around the image (to hold in skies, etc). Edited -- whoops I read a later post that this is what you'll be doing.

    Have fun!

    PS -- just thinking...if your enlarger is not well aligned, the circle may not be so circular!

    I definitely will be thinking about presentation. I did get a circular mat cut, inside of a square mat, and I like the look. But there's lots of options to try. I also had some time this afternoon to shoot more circular images that I need to develop here tonight...
