A Series of Nighttime Cityscapes
This Photo Art of The Week belongs to Steve Rea. You’re looking at a 12”x16” Classic Silver Metal Print.
Steve tells us, “The picture is of the New York skyline taken from the rooftop café of the Rockefeller tower. The shot was taken with a simple iPhone and enhanced slightly for contrast, saturation, and shadows. It is one of several nighttime shots I’ve taken in various cities including Quebec City, Victoria, Houston, Paris, and Tokyo.”
Steve’s photo is gorgeous and we can only imagine how wonderful his series of images must look! Imagine a gallery wall of nighttime cityscape photos you captured yourself; what a creative and rewarding way to document your travels! We also love that Steve created this artwork using nothing but his iPhone.

Photo Art Printed on Metal
We offer three different types of Metal Prints—HD Metal, Classic White, and Classic Silver—with each one having its own unique characteristics. Our HD Metal Print, for example, is a high-gloss print made using the dye-sublimation process to infuse the inks into the top coating of the metal sheet. Our Classic White Metal Print, on the other hand, has a satin-matte finish and your photo is printed directly onto a white-coated aluminum panel.
As this Photo Art of The Week features a Classic Silver Metal Print, let’s take a closer look at what it is.
Printing Directly onto Brushed Aluminum
Posterjack was the first photo printing company to offer metal prints in Canada. Although we offer three great options now, we started with the Classic Silver Metal Prints back in 2011. This product is unique because we print photos directly onto the brushed aluminum, so the raw metal is actually visible in areas of a photo where there’s white or low saturation. This type of custom photo art has a totally unique and artist look to it, and receives rave reviews from customers across Canada.
Comparing Metal Prints
Have you decided to print your photo on metal but can’t decide which of our Metal Print types you should go with? Everything You Need to Know About Metal Prints is a fantastic blog post/video worth checking out. It will help you decide which product your photo will look best printed on.
If you’re still unsure whether a Metal Print is the photo art product you want, we’ve compared them to two of our other very popular products:
HD Metal Prints vs. Canvas Prints
Metal Prints vs. Acrylic Prints
These comparisons not only look at the features of each product, they also include considerations like where you plan to display your photo, what decor style you’re going for, as well as size and price considerations. We want you to create photo art you’re going to love forever and be excited to show off to family and friends when they visit.
