    Optimum enlargement has to do with enlargement size versus subject requirements. If the subject needs to be 60x80 and the image falls apart you need to reshoot it with a bigger neg or different film. I think if you make grain your enemy then you might want to consider a different mediuim.

    In answer to the question, I would say that IMHO prints with very obvious grain or discreet grain work. I personally do not like the middle ground much of moderately grainy. His shots also have very crisp defined grain which is in keeping with the rawness of the image content. In this way the presence of grain compliments the images in many cases, but not all. Looking around 'Migrations' there were a good few miages where the distant detail (which I wanted to see more of) was obliterated by grain. However, the vast majority had no such fine detail (such as a crocodile of people meandering away to the horizon) and were more 'in your face' and graphic. I loved his work and the printing, which in the main was absolutely astonishing.


    Horses for courses again.
