Our favorite and most signature images are these over/under shots. We had been trying to get this turtle with his head out over/under for many years. There are so many difficult elements that go into taking this shot but one of the hardest parts is the refraction in the water. We tried to take this shot when the turtle was about 2-3 feet away but the refraction of the water made the turtles head look much smaller than it's body and the image looked very awkward. So we quickly learned that the only way to make this image work was to have the turtles nose about 2 inches from the lens…which is rare! Not only is it hard to get a turtle to face you that close but to also have clear water, a pretty sky, and a calm ocean, that's almost impossible. Needless to say, "Breathe" is one of our favorite and unique Maui images!

Float vs Euro Mount Explained

The vibrant look comes from ambient light reflecting off of the aluminum and the ink at the same time which results in the most luminescent art you will ever see. The images are so brilliant that people often ask if there are lights behind them! To top it off, the dye-infused aluminum process has unprecedented archival characteristics that will enable your piece to be radiant for the next 150 years.

Both of our aluminum mounting options have a modern feel and look "frame-less" from the front. There is no need for additional framing, they arrive in your hands, ready to hang.

Euro Mount: This option is frame-less when viewed from straight on but has a frame to edge on the back that is visible from the side that is about 1 1/2 inches thick. We use a double metal frame for added support. Default euro mount color is black but is available in silver as well. Please let us know if you would like the silver option. Euro mounts are usually recommended for larger images but they work well for all sizes. In our galleries, most pieces 12 x 18 and above are displayed with euro mounts.

 
 

Float Mount: This option looks like it is literally "floating" about a half inch off of the wall. There is a hanger on the back which you can use to hang the image with a nail or picture hanger. Float mounts are usually recommended for smaller sized images but can also work well for most sizes. At our galleries, most pieces 11x14 and smaller are shown with float mounts.

Both options look amazing, let us know if you have any questions. We would love to help!
