    Would this make a cool wall mural? The skyline of Atlanta and Buckhead, GA taken from a helicopter at about 500 feet.

    Would be printed on (3) 14x11 Canvas Wraps with 1 inch thick edges and about 2 inches separating each canvas print (like shown in picture)

    Yes. Did you take these pictures yourself?

    Yes

    Wow! That is a nice set of shots.

    I reproduce stuff like this all the time on my HP Designjet 130 and Colorspan Displaymaker 72.

    This would make a great wall mural. I have printed them 6 feet tall by very long lengths such as 12 feet. I have one in my basement like this.

    Very cool. Print it up.

    Yeah one of the joys of my job, I own a nice digital camera (30d) and I work for a commercial real estate firm, so we need aerials flown all the time, well the boss knows I am good at photography and its free to him! So I go up about once a month or so.

    Very nice photos and a great idea. BW tones always look fantastic. One question. The frame or print on the left has the tall building cropped close to the right side. Anyway to reprint the frame to move the building to the left? It may look better large and if so ignore this.

    Very cool. I'd like to see the files right out of the camera.

    My girlfriend and I are doing something sort of similar in our new house. I booked a session with one my photographer friends. The plan is to take nine photos from the session, have them printed at 11x14, put them in simple black frames, and hang them on the wall in a grid.

    I've always wanted to do a wall mural-something to take up an entire wall. I have a few fantastic shots I took in Italy and England that would work wonderfully. I have always imagined that it would cost a ton of money to do, and then there is always the problem of where to get it done.

    Printing

    I am getting mine printed from a company called www.mpix.com GREAT company, and great prices, turn around and customer service!

    The canvas prints cost about $70 a piece for 11x14

    Highly recommend using them!

    The picture is a of print that I ordered from them last week 16x24
    (taken with a crappy work camera olddddddddddd nikon, the photo doesn't do it justice!!)

    Whoops at that price you can't simply have them reprinted. My mistake.

    Looks like a nice site, I'll have to look into that. What I would personally like to do is have something printed out to paper the exact size of the wall- no frames, just one, massive picture that "is" the wall. That would cost a lot, but but would be worth it, imo.
