here are a couple of pics...the movie scene is from "hot fuzz" which by the way is an excellent dvd for picture quality and sound. the colors are not true to what is displayed...my camera put a slightly blue cast on the picture of the display...i'm sure there's a scientific explanation
for reference purpose, the fireplace mantle is 59" across..http://gc3.smugmug.com/gallery/3328531#185302471http://gc3.smugmug.com/gallery/3328531#185302459
mount is peerless st660...the forward tilt seems to eliminate/minimize any glare/reflections from outside light...there are windows all over the place
