Do you yourself like one better than the other? I'm for the Art 300, myself (but not sure that I could articulate why).


Have to think about this.

Thanks a lot for posting this print as well. Also very beautiful, but I like the Art 300 better here. I find the Art 300 extraordinary for this exceptional picture. Best, Frank

Ha ha- nothing like inviting someone to put you on the spot.
My preferred print is . . .



Art 300. Which surprises me, as I'm usually a sucker for rich, smooth tonality in a photograph. As observed, the Art 300 takes the image down the road of looking more 'painterly', and less naturalistic.


As it happens my favourite painter is Turner- no slave to the Realistic style.

As I like to include evidence of human activity when trying for "domestic" landscapes, Edward Hopper is a painter whose approach to his subjects is very helpful.

Michael, whenever I look at Hopper I see moments which feel like they've been pulled from a movie. Every painting feels like it has a story behind it.

Comparing the two scans side by side and toggling between them is very interesting. They are so different. But which I prefer, I do not know. I like them both. If push went to shove, I would go for the print on the Art 300 because it is different and really suits the subject.


The image here is the 'story'. Whereas I would go for this one if there was a story which the picture illustrates. My photography tends toward the illustrative, as I lack the creative imagination (and fear of failure/disappointment to experiment) to make the more 'artistic' print.


These two prints really highlight these two sides to photographs (especially prints) which makes them such an interesting and absorbing activity to make and look at.
