Biggest Coast Redwood Trunk ... my new 20 x 30 canvas print

Just ordered a 20 x 30 print on canvas of this selfie from last summer. A redwood we discovered in the Coast Redwood forest. We think this tree may be the largest single Coast Redwood stem known to exist presently. The photo is not greatly artistic, but I may offer it in the near future, for the few out there who like images of giant trees.

Brought back memories of "Honey I shrunk the kids". That's a huge tree.

Which camera(s) do you use? I like the picture

I am thinking about getting the Nikon 610 or 750. It will be my first camera. I want to go full frame right out of the gate.

I use a Canon 5D Mk II for portraits and easy-access landscape. On the bushwhacks, I bring pro lenses, but the crop sensor Canon 60D For portraits, I get the feedback that Canon and Nikon are both good, and maybe a slight edge for Nikon. Except for lenses, I get the drift that Canon's lenses overall may be better.

For outdoors, I hear far more leaning Canon full frame, and may be why Nat Geo went with Canon for their redwood magazine article not long ago. But I can't see someone getting a high-end Nikon and being disappointed.

Canon's 6D apparently is the same sensor as the 5D Mk III but for much less money ... both full frame.

My favorite lenses are the Canon 85mm 1.2 and Canon 135mm 2.0 ... both somewhat legendary. Recently got a Tamron 24-70mm 2.8 which is virtually on par with the Canon counterpart.

Great pic! Almost didn't even notice the person standing there.

I have a canvas of the largest tree east of the Mississippi hanging over my fireplace. Look up "Angel Oak"
The dripline is around 1/2 acre.

Mine's in 3 pieces, I think it's 24" tall and 48" wide or so.
PM me if you want to know where I got it - I don't wanna take away from OPs thread.

That's nifty.

I haven't tried a multi-panel print canvas yet. Be a fun thing to figure out this month which image to try it with.

The oak looks superb that way.

Got the print back and decided to go a little darker on colors.

Here's the second variation. The test print of this one was 100% better than the last.
