455 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo of a waterfall and tropical jungle in Hawaii; print created by Jim Tarpo in Honomu, Hawaii

Akaka Falls Hawaii

455 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Honomu, Hawaii

Hawaii is known for many beautiful natural scenes. One of the most spectacular is the 442-foot-tall Akaka Falls waterfall. My goal was to capture a VAST photo of the falls surrounded by the lush green vegetation Hawaii is known for.

On this particular day, the volume of water falling was somewhat diminished, leading to more distinct patterns in the falls becoming visible – something I prefer over an overflowing waterfall that just becomes a monotonous wall of white. When this low-water-flow situation is paired with long-exposure photography, the result is an image that has silky smooth water patterns cascading down the rocks, creating fascinating patterns that draw viewers’ eyes.

Adding to the allure of this VAST photo is the rainbow that appears at the base of the falls. Hawaii is such a magically beautiful place and this rainbow is further testament to that.

My goal with this VAST photo was to ensure I captured that magical feeling with as much detail and resolution as I could. The resulting image is nearly 200 megapixels, leading to strikingly high-quality prints that I can take great pride in.

Photographic print

Our photographic prints are created using a specialty, large-format fine art printer designed to produce archival, museum-grade prints. They are true "chromogenic" prints: light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom using state-of-the-art lasers to produce the sharpest possible image. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.

Your print comes with two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one that you will affix to the finished piece and one that remains standalone. Additionally, your print's provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology. Learn more.

Acrylic glass display

Our acrylic glass displays are ready-to-hang works of art that contain one of our photographic prints sealed between flame-polished acrylic glass and an aluminum backing. A hidden mounting brace on the rear causes the display to gracefully "float" off the wall for a sleek, modern frameless look that complements nearly any decor style.
