How long will this offer last ?
This offer will last until December 30th, 2009. However, to guarantee delivery during the holidays, we recommend you place your order now.

Orders will be shipped in the order that they are received: first come, first served.

Also, we only offer 2 orders of 4 photographs at the special offer price above. This is because this price is so low that we can onlyoffer it for 2 orders. Once these two orders are placed only single photographs will be discounted.

Master Files
Many Prints of the Month come with a copy of the Master File I used to create the print. This master file is sent to you on a tutorial CD, in Photoshop or Tiff format. It features each of the adjustment layers I created to optimize each file so it prints perfectly. Some Master Files feature 20 to 30 separate layers.

Having access to the Master File allows you to see exactly how I optimized each file to get the color, contrast and other aspects of the image exactly the way I want them to be.

Take a look at the images in the Print of the Month Collection now to see which ones come with the Master File and which one you like the most: here is the link.

After unpacking your photograph, "Canyons of the San Juan 1," I was blown away by the colors, highlight, shadow detail, and the overall dynamic range of the image. The image posted on your web site comes nowhere near to expressing the brilliance and beauty of the actual print. It is simply superb and I am very glad that I chose this one.

The presentation, framing, matting, and backing were also first rate. The frame complements the image very nicely. The print was very well packaged to prevent any damage and it arrived as promised. If we ever move I’d like to hire Natalie to help with the packing ;-)

All in all Alain, a first rate job all the way around! I will look forward to displaying this image to friends and visitors.
