A single cropped frame.

Yes, it's an amazing lens.

And I really must ask to forgive me for implying that a "wow" response to your picture is only due to the lens rather than than the eye & brain behind it ! (My only excuse is that I've only recently discovered the difference to my own pictures that good glass can make when I'm paying attention to composition, exposure and holding the camera steady, etc, etc)

No worries mate, the thought did not even cross my mind. My LBA is agitated all the time whenever I look at other people's shots, it's such a nasty addiction

I've seen these types of prints before and have always liked them. Aside from "printed on aluminum with acrylic on top", do you know if there is a name for this type of print? Like a one or two word name for it?

Francis- You obviously have figured out how to get brilliant photos at the wide end--don't give up on the narrow end! Vegas has lots of great characters and you need a little bit of reach to get them. Bring a medium telephoto, like the 70mm Ltd. and just play around with it, I think you'll be really surprised. Great for capturing faces and details you won't be able to get with a 35mm. Useful in nature, too! And it will challenge you a bit, giving you a different perspective to experiment with. I fell in love with the 70mm focal length on my trip to Italy and take it everywhere now. Especially when traveling with friends, I get intimate portraits from a distance they don't even know I'm shooting.

In spite of me being in Canada, most of my client prints or orders come from BRI.

WHCC also has metal prints now but I never ordered them from them.
