    For my birthday this year, my wife had one of my landscape photos printed on canvas and done up as a 'gallery wrap'. It finally came in today and I got it hung on the wall. It's 50 inches by 30 inches.

    The printed canvas wraps around the 2" thick frame.

    Thanks :)

    It looks fantastic.
    Of course, the resolution isn't great when you are standing one foot away, but when you stand back a bit (as you are meant to do with a large print) it looks just fine.

    Nicely done! Quite thoughtful of your wifey =) I find myself encasing everything in glass myself but that's just preferences though!

    I've got way too many photos behind cheap glass. I can't say that I know a lot about quality framing glass, but I do know that it surely makes a difference when you use the right glass for framing.

    i prefer canvas to framed glass. Just gives it that more arty look

    Looks good. Is that Moraine lake in Banff national park?
