Okay, I'm sure we've all had the experience of printing out a picture that looked pretty good on the screen, but in full-size print just didn't measure up.

Well, I have, anyway.

And that makes a certain amount of sense. The printer's got a smaller dot size than the screen, a different color gamut, handles edges a little differently, etc, etc.

Well, today, I had the opposite experience. I printed a nice 11x14 of this picture:


Actually, it's more like a 9x11 because I printed it across the page horizontally and filled the rest with black. Anyway, on the screen, I think it's a very good picture. But the print, oh, wow, the print is just spectacular. I mean, I couldn't stop looking at it for a minute. It even distracted me from the thing I should have retouched and the other thing I should have noticed when I took the shot. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

That ever happen to anybody else, or am I just being weirder than usual?
