Sharpness and perfect and so on...isn't it really the viewing distance and purpose of the image that determine our subjective response in terms of how sharp or perfect the image is? I don't think I've ever been able to discern the dithering pattern on a billboard while driving past at even 25 mph (although I can if I'm stopped near one at a light), so for that application, the print is sharp and perfect. In a gallery setting or on a page, we want something different in terms of sharpness...unless the intent of the maker is to call attention to grain or printing patterns. Regardless of the optics/physics/etc., the subjective maker of the image and the subjective viewer will ultimately decide whether an image is perfect...isn't non-subjective perfection imposssible to acheive? on 06/13/2002 11:59 PM, Arthur Entlich at firstname.lastname@example.org wrote: > Like 2.5 kilometers away ? :-) > > Art > > Jerry Olson wrote: > >> I have seen many a billboard printed from 35mm and they are extremely >> sharp, when viewd from the proper viewing distance! >> >> Jerry - Turn off HTML mail features.
