_ the print comes with a white border of about 1,5 cm on each side, which allows for proper handling and facilitates matting and framing; the size mentioned above is a net size that does not include this border;
_ a hinged matt is made of a white Daler-Rowney mountboard (back) and a white Canson Ingres Vidalon matt (front) with a white core; both boards are acid-free, and conform to the ISO 9706 standard for permanence; the print is mounted with a T-hinge using archival Abaca Hinging Tape, which is used for the hinge as well;
_ price includes VAT, but does not include postage, packaging, or framing;
_ prints on archival fine art papers up until 58 by 87 cm are printed by myself on a Canon ImageProGraf Pro 2100 printer, using archival Canon Lucia Pro ink;
_ Diasec TruLife framing is outsourced, as this is a specialised and proprietary framing method;
_ prints are always made on demand; as such a purchase cannot be cancelled once the print has been produced, or in the case of Diasec TruLife framing, once I've placed the order
_ disclaimer: as part of the printing process, and to ensure my personal quality standards are met, two AP/PP prints are produced: one on an A4, and one in the format at which the print is advertised above; the larger size print is typically used for exhibiting, unless an HC print was made specifically for that purpose; the smaller one can be part of my paper portfolio.

One way to portray the raw force emanating from the second most powerful waterfall in Europe ('powerful' being understood as water flow x fall distance), would be to use a paper with a maximum D-max, high brightness and high whiteness.
However, this moment frozen in time, which shows the delicate swirling of the weightless blobs of water, the yellow-brown coloration caused by suspended sediment, and the ever-changing spray catching an ephemeral rainbow, ask for a more gentle rendering.
I therefore went for Canson Infinity Platine Fibre Rag, which matches the image perfectly. It's a an acid and OBA free, internally buffered, ISO 9706 compliant fine art paper that can easily be mistaken for a generic all-rounder because it basically every image looks good on it. Some, however, come into their own, and this is one of them.
