    I don't think that is exactly what jovo meant. Technical perfection being a print that satisfies the photographer and achieves the desired aesthetic for the image. And this is not something absolute or static. It can evolve over time.

    As for Adams, yes his prints - particularly from the late 60s onward and characteristic of the 70s - are more "dramatic" than his earlier versions. He himself acknowledged this using the term Wagnerian.

    I don't know why it's a good photo, but for me it's very important photograph.
    Without that picture I'd shoot still digital. When I first saw it, it was a shocking experience.

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Western Exposure

    I had the privilege of seeing a print of both Moonrise over Hernandez and the clearing winter storm in Yosemite in person as part of the "Western Exposure" exhibit. Truly amazing to see in person, though I preferred the clearing winter storm print. Interestingly enough there was another photograph he made not far from the clearing winter storm photo (I forget the name). The positions were remarkably similar, right down to the two tall trees in the lower right corner of the photograph.

    Western Exposure also showed some of his color work, but most was B&W. If you get the chance to see Western Exposure, do so. You won't regret it.

    Shoot more film.

    For what it’s worth, I appreciate the Van Gogh analogy with the finely crafted print and I think Van Gogh is probably one of the greatest artist who ever lived. I also appreciate from personal experience that seeing an original van Gogh is a mind blowing experience. However, I’m not sure this quite equates to seeing a hand crafted photographic print.

    Being well lit will very likely preclude whatever advantage there might be to being well hung.

    That photo makes them look very NOT triplet-ish. Each one looks distinct from the other, to the extent of even being different heights. Probably a side-effect of standing on uneven ground.
