    I want to get a print of this picture done.

    http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=129274#129274

    Is there a prticular paper or way I could ask for this to be printed (at the local shop) in order to emphasize the "wet" look and texture of the water??

    It would be off a disk ... as the pic linked to has been tweaked (after a negative tranfer to disk) quite a bit (obvious from the clouds) in order to get the color a little more vivid and dramatic.

    My eye has always been drawn most to the texture of the water and I was wondering if there was a particular process that might help me enhance the impact and "wetness" of the water???

    Some prints I notice kind of lose the wetness (I dont know what other word to describe it) of water in some images I have seen ...... including my own store prints.

    I am not sure if my question makes sense, but any help or opinions would be appreciated.

    the only thing i can think of is to print on glossy paper.....it will give the water more of a shiny "wet" look as opposed to printing on matte paper....or you could always laminate it....
