      Avid stalker here of this forum but just haven't been able to contribute as much as I'd like. Went on vacation last month with my gf to Santorini and was hoping for some help on some of the shots.

      There is one in particular shot I am happy with I will try and get printed or maybe on canvas (this is where I need advice). Would like it to be of decent size for a wall. Would also appreciate suggestions for editing as I'm only using small adjustments in lightroom. Thanks in advance.

      1. (the one I'd like to have a decent print of)

      Really like #1, I think it would look great as a print!

      Canvas can be nice, I've done several, but I don't know if it'd be the best for that shot. Reason is, the canvas, being a rough surface, tends to kill details. With so many cool buildings in that shot, I think you might take something away from the print if you put it on canvas and lose the detail. Just my opinion.

      These days I've been doing a lot of prints on metal and while it's been tough to get the colours just right, I really enjoy the effect.

      thanks didn't even think about that for canvas. Definitely want to preserve as much detail as possible. That said metal is probably going to be expensive/hard to get right for me (i should look it up).

      Any thoughts on editing or if anything seems missing from these?

      Some beautiful shots!

      Watch your horizons, however. 1 is really crooked and 3 and 4 looks like they could use some straiting as well.
