Gary, have I got a deal for you.

Looking great and very professional, IMO. Well done.

Very nice, Gary. Did you have them printed out in large format at a printing shop?

No it was all done using our computer and printer.
First six copies (legal size) of the trees were printed, then three mirror images were made (flip horizontal). Six copies of the sky were printed and then everything was spliced together.

Thanks. It's even more impressive, then. I never have luck getting things like that to line up properly.
