Bracy Cove

1,640 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Seal Harbor, Maine

This is the beach at Bracy Cove on Mount Desert Island in Maine on September 19, 2015, 18:55 – 19:14, through the end of civil twilight and beginning of nautical twilight. The tide was going out so the rocks and seaweed were all still wet. The water flowing down the sand left hundreds of interesting channels and patterns. I selectively focused on a couple of the more interesting pebbles and a ribbon of seaweed in the sand and let the rest of the foreground and background blur out for a “bokehrama” effect, to give a more three dimensional feel to the image.

Camera settings: 400mm, f/8, ISO 31, 2 seconds.

Stitching data: 5 rows of 17 images.

Equipment used: Nikon D810, Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II, Nikon TC-20E III 2x teleconverter, Panoneed robotic panning head, and Really Right Stuff TVC-34L tripod & leveling base. Edited with Lightroom, aligned with AutoPano Giga, and manually blended via masks in Photoshop.

Our canvas material has a delightfully matte finish that looks spectacular in any lighting conditions while retaining maximum vibrancy and contrast. Click here to learn more.

Produced using a specialty, large-format fine art printer operating at 300ppi resolution—the gold standard for sharpness
Printed onto heavyweight, 100% acid-free fine art canvas to preserve color-accuracy and longevity
Created using materials and methods that exceed the rigorous technical standards required to achieve the prized "giclée" industry rating
Designed to meet the most demanding standards for color-permanence set by leading museums
Handmade by award-winning master printmakers with over 4 decades of experience
Optionally accompanied by your choice of elegant floater frame available in a variety of trims

VAST Print™

A VAST Print™ represents the pinnacle of the photographic medium. Each print is a true photograph created specifically for you using light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom with the industry's highest precision exposure technique. Your print is then sealed with a shine-enhancing protective glossy coating*, adhered to a sturdy aluminum composite backing, and finished in one of two ready-to-hang formats:

  • Frameless floating display: A hidden mounting brace on the rear gracefully "floats" the print off the wall for a sleek, modern look.
  • Framed display: The print is mounted inside one of our handcrafted 100% wood frames with a decorative separation between the print and the frame so that the print appears to be floating within the frame, providing depth and elegance to the finished photo.

*Note: a non-glossy, satin matte coating is alternatively available on request.
