    I found this picture of the strip that I really want to get printed and framed. I want it to be large like 48" X 12". I found some frames for that size but they start out at $115 and I dont wanna pay that much. I looked some more and found a frame for a 42" X 12" picture for $50 which I'm willing to pay.

    Now where in the hell do I get it printed at? I looked at staples, office max, walgreens and none of them offer that size. Is there a more common size I should be looking for? I want this to be a nice short and wide panoramic display. Heres the picture I want to do this with

    EDIT: As soon as I posted this I found a site called uprinting.com where I can get it printed and shipped for $30 bucks. Also I forgot to ask, is the resolution of that pic good enough to blow it up to that size?

    I would think any Ritz camera store would print that.

    Killer shot btw. Where were you to take that shot and what kind of camera did you use?

    Depends on the actual size of the image.
    Lets say what I see is the actual size then when it gets blown up it will look terrible.
    But if you have the original image and its much much larger then it may work out fine.

    How about some info on camera settings?
    My night shots end up being to dark or have the lights blinding the images.

    Those pictures are so cool, theres a really good one of there of the strip.

    *Caution* don't look at the beached whales at the Paris pool, go next door to PH to see some eye candy.
