Interesting. I've been to a few exhibitions, juried competitions ... and I've yet to see a "claim" of any type made by the photographer, such as "this is a `perfectly' - or `properly' exposed print. I have never seen a requirement for acceptance as "Tecnically perfect", probably because no one can define `perfect' or `proper'.

A badly exposed print is exactly that , the same can be said for a print lacking in contrast.
All we have to do is consult our crytal balls and determine if high or low "key" was intended...
