One thing I am missing in prints...
In reply to nofumble, Aug 11, 2013

I am missing the dynamic range, especially when a light source (Sun, Moon, reflections, lights, etc.) are in the picture. Even if they are printed as white and the surrounding area is dark, the print still does not generate the illusion of a "source of light" as digital display does. At one time, I was even thinking about installing a source of light (white LED) behind a curtain parts of my prints, but I never tried.

Here are two examples which I like on the computer monitor or iPad. I printed them, and they look rather dull in prints:

In museums, they place prints under glass with anti-reflective coating, and have a dedicated external source of light - usually a halogen lamp or two illuminating the prints.
