Yes, green, dark and probably damp… I like it a lot!

+1, the structural harmony is visually soothing

Such a complex and deep scene. I think this almost has to be large to really be appreciated properly. I'd imagine it would make a great looking 17x25 off my metallic paper

Thanks Fellows.
Much appreciate your comments.
When I first saw this in ACR it was not unlike an astounding tapestry. Something almost cathedral like.
But here on LuLa it's lost its brilliance and complexity. And I'm not sure if that just because of its size.
As MM says, it probably needs to be a lot bigger to be really appreciated.
Maddog Murph, what paper do you have in mind?

I, too, would love to see a very big print of this.

Richard, I have a 17" P800 Epson which I picked up for $300 on craigslist, probably because the ink costs a fortune. There are very few providers who do 17x25" out of the box, but I  found a company called Red River Paper. I have been using their "Polar Gloss Metallic 255" and the results on some of my prints are just stunning. Like I've never seen anything quite this amazing, and couldn't be happier with the results. The paper really shines when you've got an extraordinary high level of detail, are printing at about 17-24" and have a lot of color in the shot. For the most part, I like the matte, but for that shot, I'd want to see it in metallic. It would probably also look good on Moab Entrada Bright Rag, and Hahnemuhle Bamboo.

MaddogMurph.
Thanks for cluing me in. Very glad you're getting excellent results with the RR paper. I'm gonna get some samples and see what I can do.

I'm a big fan of Red River papers, but I haven't yet tried the Polar Gloss Metallic 255. I will get some for use with appropriate images.

Very nice, moody and somber, quiet. I might wish for more sharpness. Or, if blurry is your goal, more of that. It sort of sits on the cusp as I see it.

Thank you Eric and Peter.

Peter, Thanks for your careful viewing and good comment about my foto. I started out with a fairly sharp version to make all the details apparent, but when I downsized the image for LuLa I used the soften mode in PS resizing. So your observation about the image now makes me aware of how much the soften mode really does.

Thank you for that.
