I've got to confess that I can't quite understand this as a definition.Originally Posted by Jim68134
"Archival" ... well, OK. But ... just how "archival"? Twenty years, thirty... three months?.
I certainly think there is more to a "fine" print than the technical aspect. We can do all the technical things "right", Dmax, Dmin, all the sundry others, but would that make a poorly composed pile of dog crap into a "fine" print?
..."Best possible presentation,", "but not necessarily matted and framed... " I'm trying to visualize this ... can you give an example?
Now "sitting in a box" ... what does the location or surroundings have to do with the merit of the print itself? A print sent to a photography editor could very well arrive in a "presentation box" ... quite possibly "not the best presentation possible" ... but appropriate.... but still, I don't see any effect to the print itself.
