Hmmm...interesting, the "Beer Goggles" theory applied to creative photography. I think there might be book in that

Seriously, I think that you have an excellent point there. I'm thinking of people that I know who have visited the Grand Canyon and, overcome by the spectacular vista, the depth, the color, the breathtaking scale, they shoot dozens of frames sure that every one will certainly be a masterpiece. When they get their 4x6's back, they are inevitably disappointed. The prints just don't convey their experience of standing in front of the real thing (must be the damned lab's fault).
