Images that look great on a monitor, but....

....not so much printed ? Do you have any shots like this ?Is their anyone who can articulate why this is ?

Here's a couple examples. The first one here of Yosemite Valley from Tunnel view, got tons of attention on a few different photography sites. In fact, on one FB page, it got more likes than any other photo I could find, going back for like 1 full year.... But honestly, it did not make my best aluminum print. Put it this way, I use it for the BG on my Photography website, but it is not the one used over our fireplace mantel.

This shot, on the other hand, made my favorite aluminum print ever.

BTW, the Yosemite Valley shot, had very little photoshopping done to it. The second, much more natural shot of Spider Rock, at Canyon De Chelly, has a TON of photoshopping.... painted, pushed, and pulled in every direction lol But I love it.
