And one more thing -

In my previous post I have some issues with Mr. Thein's Ultraprints remarks.

Here is one more. In the remarks after his closeup photo of the moon portion of his print, he spends a little time talking about -- apparently -- things we cannot see in his photo of the photo.

I don't understand this at all. He's not photographing the moon, he's photographing a print. There are no dynamic range challenges here, and there are minimal to no color gamut problems (we're already in CMYK land in the prin, after all). Why can his photo of the photo not show us everything that is, well, in the photo? He seems to be implying that he cannot show us details that are visible in the print.

This makes no sense to me.

Tricky, though. We are again fooled into buying it (or at any rate I was) because it looks kind of like a picture of the moon, and we all know there can be dynamic range challenges there.

But it's not. It's a picture of a piece of paper with ink on it.
