The raw fie is the score, the printable file is the interpretation

Steve Bingham had a relevant thread a few days ago but I think the points raised are so important, and so clearly summarized in this NPR interview that it is well worth listening http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=128828530

Quote: "...as he printed it over and over again, it becomes this much more dramatic rendition of this scene, and it takes on the quality of a metaphor. There's a graveyard in the foreground with light striking the crosses. And in the later prints, the crosses just kind of glow out of this dark background. So he really spent a lot of time interpreting that print and over time changing his mind about how it should look."

So ...Ansel Adams didn't think his most famous image was 'finished' straight out of the camera...
