"The Curl"


Hawaiian Fine Art Landscape Photograph by Lijah Hanley.

Maui, Hawaii- I really wanted to get a shot of a curling wave at sunrise on our trip to Maui, which sounds a lot easier than it is. Using an underwater housing, I purposely put myself in the break zone and got slammed a couple dozen times. I didn't have too much luck the first couple of days, so I went back again for a third sunrise. Right after this shot was taken, this wave which was a lot bigger than it looks, came crashing down, smashed me on my head, and continued to twist and roll me underwater, finally squishing me into the sand resulting in a bloody lip and nose. I came up on the shore to review my screen, and saw that I finally got the shot.

Chromaluxe Metal Prints: These prints represent a new medium in photographic printing. Using a specialty process, we sublimate ink directly into a sheet of light reflective Chromaluxe aluminum. Due to the luminescence of the metal surface, the finished product has a brightness, vibrancy, and a clarity to it that cannot be rivaled with any other printing technique. Chromaluxe prints are so luminous, that they almost appear backlit. In addition to the striking finish, metal prints are guaranteed to last for a century without noticeable fading, are scratch resistant, waterproof, and all come with sleek aluminum hanging hardware on the back of the print for seamless hanging. The final piece will hang an inch and a half away from the wall. Chromaluxe prints represent the best quality prints in the industry and are the perfect modern art piece for any home. 

Paper Prints: All of our paper prints are printed onto Kodak archival papers. This type of print requires matting and framing before it is ready to be hung. 

Finishes: All of our paper prints come on Kodak Metallic fine art papers. Our Chromaluxe metal prints, however, come on two different finishes. Our recommended finish is on the high gloss Chromaluxe. The high gloss will have incredible contrast and depth, however it is prone to reflections if hung directly across from a window. Due to this, we also offer our Chromaluxe prints on a matte finish. The matte finish will have slightly less contrast that the high gloss, but will have zero reflections, and is recommended for areas where windows will cause reflections.
