    This is a print made using the photo below

    coming out of my G6 and PL25 1.4 wide open, and with a little crop and content aware scaling to fulfil the canvas, having it printed at about 166ppi the result is incredibly good.

    It's hard to fully appreciate a small photo of a large print. But that is a great photo and I am sure it looks fantastic in person.

    I've had similar luck printing large from 10-18MP images. You don't need 36MP to print large or 300DPI for it to look sharp - you just need a quality image.

    no, and this is when my English falls short, it's a print attached or transferred (I'm not sure exactly how) to an 1cm thick board so that it doesn't require a frame or other installation, what do you call it in English?

    it converts to about 26 dollars include shipping to make this print, however the "wall art" option on flickr is much more expensive, maybe that's why I haven't yet seen anyone here ordered from flickr?

    thanks. i didn't make it fully B/W but it's probably difficult to tell from the photo, there's some saturation and tint so I think it differs from being "just another black and white", don't get me wrong I love seeing B/Ws but I just don't usually have the luck producing a good one, luckily this one turned out ok.
