    Default I'll never look at prints the same way again...

    Had heard about Lightjet & Lambda printing every now and then but as high-quality large prints don't really come cheap, its pretty out of luck for me.

    Had a little stroke of luck and managed to get a lab that does large lambda prints for a reasonably good price, so I went ahead with it.

    Hanging against the dull whitish-grey of a wall, the lambda print brought out every single vibrancy and tone of my landscape shots. My eyes simply went

    The shi*ty thing about this is, I'm getting hooked by lambda prints and will probably never do my prints on inkjet again~ ever.

    Anyway to break this addiction?

    Ya, good quality print no doubt is expensive. Worth the money if really you love the shot

    Care to share where you do you prints?

    Haven really do super big print, so far only pritned 10x30 inches with Salom, it never fail me or perhaps my expectations not very high?

    The rest i only print 10x15.

    This addiction can be broke unless u found a new one LOL

    I have 4 walls of swimsuit super model posters in my room.

    i help you burn your prints, then you print again, i burn again

    after a while you will stop wanting to print because they keep getting burnt.
