    I have to say that he's correct about it 'technically' being a good photograph.

    But the shot itself? A rather resounding 'meh'.

    I would rather buy this one even for USD 100

    How about a picture of the man himself:

    Agree with others that the photo, while potentially technically brilliant, looks more like stock photo than art.

    The thing is, it's hard to say whether it's art or not while looking on the screen. That's why I want to see for myself. The difference between on screen and in real life, and see if a good print does make a difference.

    But even Ctein said it himself, it's a technical exercise more so than anything else, which is why the print cost is so low.

    If it were "art", would he be selling a 17x22 for $20? It's a demo of what can be accomplished. For $20, it's a deal.

    I don't see why people are even paying $20 to see his glorified tech demo. I've read his boastful webpage about he's the greatest printer on the planet and even if it is true, it reads horribly. And frankly I'd rather put $20 towards a photo that meant something to me then to pay just to "pixel peep" his printing skills.

    Like I said above, I like the photo, art is subjective. I paid 10 bucks to my local Costco to print 20x30 demo prints.

    This print sale is not for m43 converts anyways. People that use m43 know how good it is.
