I just grabbed a few of these off of Hipstamp.
Yes I do understand that photos can be manipulated for color changes. My point here is the Blending/bleeding of color.
They clearly show serious differences in how they were printed and or paper quality being used.
This image shows how well the colors blend into the background, filling the ocean. Color is lighter and looks almost faded.
This image shows almost none of that blending/bleeding into the background at all. The color is also much brighter and solid.
This image has those same bright color but with the blend/bleeding into the ocean.
Which opens up that old story of when is it a catalogable difference or not. Clearly these images along with the Original post image show stark differences. Whether its paper or a specific printing method/technique. Should it be catalog notable?
I believe it should. Yet I'm no expert. When I can see differences that obvious, it should be noted in a catalog. IMHO
