A while back, I saw a great tutorial on how to create a gallery poster on Jeff Revell’s PhotoWalkPro site.  Now typically, I prefer to create prints with the more traditional image + mat + frame, but certain images seem to work well in this poster format.  And this particular image fit the bill for me.  The morning I captured this scene on the beach at Plum Island in Newburyport, MA, I was actually disappointed that the sunrise was somewhat uninspiring with no clouds whatsoever to add the vibrant colors and glow you can sometimes get from a New England sunrise.  When I got home and processed the image however, I was very pleased with the simplicity of the sky and its subtle color shifts.  I’d been wanting to find an image that would look good as a gallery poster, and I really like the way this one came out.  Just as Jeff did with his poster, I printed it with Mpix, and the results were fantastic.

    Wow, this is a beauty!
    Love this scene, Steve. It has great earth tones and color. Nice perspective as well.

    I’m sure the poster is awesome. Well done!

    Very nice shot! The movement on the water is perfect… not too much, not too little!
