Bro... make sure you shoot in RAW. A designer will then resize it to the actually size of mural.
I have done big murals that covers 4 storey building before and what I can say is, to get the best result, photos have to resize to the actual size. DPI not important to murals. You can have a solid 500dpi but the size of pic is smaller than the actual mural, the end result will still be not good. To achieve better end result is to ask the designer to resize the actual size of pic to mural size, even if the dpi is 50dpi, colours will turn out much better.

seriously, you might have bitten off more than you can chew ... but on a personal level, best of luck !!
next time ask your company to give the industry a chance and provide gainful employment to someone who does this for a living (no offence bro, u will get better with time and you seem genuine and a nice guy, but as u said, u r a newbie... no offence hor. )

Dun mind I comment on something else, I no pro but this is what my boss alway want me to capture for his development. Blue Sky!!!
suggest your see the direction on the building is facing, alway have the sun shine on the building which will bring out the building and not blow out sky colour...
also try to shoot with blue sky! good luck
Life is like Photography, to improve, you have to keep shooting!
we got a 'tan chia' fotographer for most of our jobs but coy want to save more money this
time becos they think the fotographer rate is not justifiable for those shoots.
ya blue sky, that is why i was there last evening and this morning. and u know what,
the haze is back!
i'm a nikonian and my sw cant read canon RAW file. will post my pic here once i got the sw.
Hi Yeo, I thought you're a Taxi Driver? (http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/showthread.php?t=568693)
Anyway, if we folks explain to you in details from setup -> image capture -> post processing -> printing, your company probably will realise that a few grand for 2 or 3 pictures is perfectly justfiable. (think of the time, equipment, knowledge, 3rd party liaison).
Maybe if you drop by some of the professional galleries you'll understand the exacting standards such similar projects.
I always believe that folks should keep their hobbies away from their employers to prevent themselves from being made use of. Not just there aren't incentives for additional non related work and expectations, if the employee screw it up, the management accounts this in their appraisals (written or unwritten) even though that wasn't what the employee is being hried for.
Good luck anyway.
