Beautiful, very artistic. The last two are my favorites. The next to last one would make an awesome glossy metal print.

Thank you very much, I'll have to look into metal printing.

Metal prints really make the colors pop, particularly when there are deep colors and some black in the image. Get glossy, the impact is dramatically greater than any other surface treatment. Be sure to get the small rounded corners, too, otherwise the sharp corners poke holes in skin and walls and can get bent if the photo gets bonked. The two photos with a tulip on its side would look awesome as metal prints. I use Bay Photo, but White Wall and several others do metal prints as well.

There is a big art show here twice a year, attracts artists from all over the country, using all kinds of media, and the last two times I noticed almost all the photographers there were exclusively selling metal prints, only a few were selling prints on canvas.

I had a big tryptic metal print made to put above the headboard of our bed at my wife's request. She's an artist, does acrylic painting and designs and makes jewelry, and I pick her brain for cropping images sometimes because she knows all the universal rules for composition. She picked one of my photos with a spray of fuschia colored orchids on a black background. The fuschia on black really, really draws the eye into the image.

Edit: That butterfly would make a great metal print, too. And your white background photos may work well as metal prints, too, but I haven't any experience with light backgrounds yet since all my bug and flower photos have black backgrounds.

Thanks so much for all the information. I am in Canada so I will look into companies here that do metal printing.

Very nice work. I really like the leaves. Are they flora or something manufactured?
