Print is the Ultimate Editing Tool (continued)

As I mentioned in my previous post I’m working thru backlog of photographs. When stuck I’m printing and living with the prints for awhile. Let them sink in and see them in the new light.

There are a couple more observation I have made during this process.

First observation is that what looks better on the screen is not necessarily what looks good. All the images that I was leaning toward while viewing on the screen ultimately did not make the cut after printing.

Second observation is that what does not look like a winner on the screen might produce a fantastic print. I did not like the image below. It looked too busy on the screen. I printed it anyway because I wanted to see how it looks in print. The print looks fantastic: there is mystery and space in it.
