The blue ocean, and in it the primal cosmic nursery giving life to thousands of new stars. What can be more inspiring?
The picture shows a fragment of the emission nebula named after the Pacman Game (The Pacman Nebula, NGC281). This spectacular and very dynamic object is located in the constellation Cassiopeia and it hangs above our heads in the autumn (practically at the zenith). This creates a very good conditions to take photographs from Poland. During this session, I managed to hit an extremely stable atmosphere, which allowed me to capture hard-to-reach details, especially from my part of the world. I think this is a record resolution for anything I ever squeezed out of my observatory near Warsaw.
Inside you can see the Globula Bok (IC 1590), at which I aimed my dedicated telescope (very long focal length ~3 meters). In the area, you will find more globulars in which new stars are born. A fantastic process and very spectacular. Nothing looks as good on space photos as the Bok Globules.
I took the picture in my astronomical observatory near Warsaw (the capital city of Poland, EU). In total, there are about 20 hours of exposure and many days of digital processing.
Art-gallery quality without compromise
This fine art is printed at my home print studio in the highest possible quality with an expanded color gamut (Epson UltraChrome HDX 11 base colors) on a specially preselected paper. I only use print media recommended by world-class photographers, mainly Epson Signature Worth series (Fine-Art Photography: Exhibition Fiber; Poster: Premium Luster Photo Paper), which provide a very inspiring experience both aesthetic and tactile. The entire printing and production process is carried out by me personally. This guarantees the quality of presentation unattainable for other printing methods. This is the level found in the most prestigious photographic art galleries in the world. You will be delighted – I promise.
The rich blacks combined with the incredible color fidelity reinforces the aesthetics of the dark and deep cosmos in my photographs. Additionally, the Signature Worth and Legacy paper surface allows viewers to experience every detail in the prints.
A masterpiece that will last for many generations
The most advanced printing technology (created in Japan by Epson) which I decided to use, combined with special, highest quality archival papers, provide for the remarkable durability of these printed photographs. These Fine Art prints will survive many generations on your wall. According to the prestigious Wilhelm Imaging Research organization, the longevity of such prints reaches even several hundred years (Poster variant up to 175 years when it’s kept behind the UV glass). In order to reflect my commitment and personal relationship with photography, each copy of Fine-Art Photography is personally signed by me, which complements the unique character.
The Fine Art print is delivered in a secure container in the form of a tube. All photopaper prints will be rolled in acid free tissue, shipped in heavy duty cardboard document tubes. This guarantees its safety and preserves the quality of prints during transport to your home.
