I added a backdrop. It's actually a picture I took in Santa Fe, New Mexico last October.

 like the backdrop, could you tell us how you did it.

Is it done in tiles then pasted on, or was it sent out to a commercial trade house and printed as one peice.

I did it on a plotter which is just a large Laserjet printer. It uses a 36-inch roll of paper. It's just regular paper, not photo paper or anything special. I printer it about 24-inches by 54-inches and clipped it to a piece of cardboard.

It was actually a bad picture. The foreground was too dark but it had a nice sky. I cropped it and tweaked it with Photoshop.

Bob-
You sure did a nice job on the background- even if the photo wasn't the best!

Hey Bob
Pine Creek has turned out to be one of the nicest micros I have seen. Great work! Great photos! I'll be keeping them for inspiration.
