The story

This is a new version of an image that was featured on NASA’s APOD on Christmas day, 2010 under the name “Decorating the sky”. I’ve used that image often to show that framing and composition in deep-sky imaging matter, if we look around. The blue and dark nebula on the left is M78. The dark and red on the right is LDN 1622. and the “wall” of red clouds in the middle is part of Barnard’s loop – all of it in the constellation Orion.

Fuji Pearl paper is a super high gloss finish, archival paper. It has a better gloss than glossy photo paper, thicker paper and it contains pigments and other materials that give purer whites and sharper, better defined highlights. We ship our prints flat, not rolled, regardless of the size.

Metal prints are a modern and visually striking way to display photographs. The printing process involves infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets, resulting in vibrant and durable prints with a unique, high-gloss finish. Metal prints are always shipped ready to hang.
