A very high resolution, close-up VAST photo of water droplets on green leaves on the ground in spring; fine art macro photograph created by Dan Piech in the New York Botanical Garden, New York City

Newborn

Artist: Dan Piech
Location: New York Botanical Garden, New York City
Captured: April 27, 2017
Resolution: 344 megapixels
Max size: 14x7 ft
Few people ever notice the unblemished perfection found in a newborn leaf. Every spring, if the conditions are just right, a new crop of leaves bursts forth and, for a few fleeting days, remains untainted by the elements.

It has been a goal of mine to capture this delicate purity for many years. However, each year, the possibility of finding this state of affairs in the natural world is incredibly slim. A number of factors have to come together for a perfect leaf to naturally form, beginning with an early-spring that is free from harsh frosts or driving rainstorms. Additionally, the leaves need to be in an area that is protected from adverse conditions such as falling debris, high insect activity, poor soil, or any other of a number of issues which could damage the developing foliage.

After spending years neurotically keeping an eye out for the perfect patch of newborn leaves, I finally found them one late-April day in 2017...  read more

A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo of Machapuchare Mountain and the Annapurna Himalayas Mountains from Namchung Ri; fine art black and white landscape photograph created by Doug Kofsky while mountaineering in Nepal

Machapuchare (6997m) from Namchung Ri: B&W

Artist: Doug Kofsky
Location: Namchung Ri, Nepal
Captured: May 30, 2013
Resolution: 121 megapixels
Max size: 12x3 ft
The word Machapuchare translates from Nepali Bhasa as “Fishtail”, as the mountain resembles the tail of a fish poking into the sky when looked at from the jungles below. I became fascinated with Machapuchare’s unique shape and dedicated three weeks to hiking around it in order to find new places to view it from.

Namchung Ri, a nearby mountain, was the culmination of this research. "Ri" is the Nepali word for "hill" but in any other place Namchung would be called a mountain. It was quite an adventure to find this point. Let’s just say my Nepali language and hand gesturing skills were put to the test.

On the morning of this photo, I was blessed with good weather. Recent rain had washed the haze out of the sky and the glazing of new snow shone like crystals on the icy peaks...  read more

A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo of farmland, the prairie, an old truck, and an abandoned house; fine art landscape photo created at sunset by Scott Dimond on the Great Plains in Saskatchewan, Canada

Days Gone By

Artist: Scott Dimond
Location: Saskatchewan, Canada
Captured: August 3, 2007
Resolution: 105 megapixels
Max size: 11x2 ft
This photograph was really the start of two areas of focus in my photographic journey. It was one of the first large-scale panoramic images I produced and was also the start of my serious pursuit of grand scenes that included rural abandonment.

On a multi-day exploring trip across the Canadian prairies, I found this location on a rainy evening in June. The grass was green and lush and the setting was surreal. Never would I have imagined finding such perfect placement of all things rural from days gone by: a cute little abandoned house, a lone tree, a rundown shed, and, most amazingly, a perfectly positioned old red pickup truck parked out front. With heavy rains, I could only marvel at the scene as photography was out of the question.

And with that began another common occurrence with many of my photos, having to return to the same location some time later. With commitments elsewhere, I was forced to move on from the location on that rainy day in June. But I thought about the location constantly and at the first opportunity, about 5 weeks later, I headed out on the five-hour drive it would take me to be there again...  read more

A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo of the Downtown San Francisco city skyline at sunset dusk; fine art cityscape photograph created by Justin Katz in California

San Francisco Blue Hour

Artist: Justin Katz
Location: Downtown San Francisco, CA
Captured: March 28, 2017
Resolution: 363 megapixels
Max size: 18x6 ft
The “blue hour” is that brief but magical moment of twilight, either early in the dawn, or late in the dusk, when the sun is at a significant distance below the horizon and the residual, indirect sunlight takes on a predominantly blue hue. My goal was to create a VAST photo capturing San Francisco at that special moment - but first I had to find the perfect location.

The "City By the Bay" is located on a geologic fault line, which means that there is no shortage of scenic overlooks, dramatic views, and picturesque locations. That being said, Twin Peaks is one of my favorites. It offers a great vantage of the entire downtown San Francisco area, with a straight view down Market Street all the way to the famous Ferry Building. In the background, you can see the recently reinvigorated Bay Bridge, with all its dancing lights.

On this particularly cold evening, I worked my way past the main viewpoint, and down the hillside where I could be in perfect position...  read more
