Well, that's naturally true... I was talking about prints straight from
the lab (usually not a custom lab, but often those as well) as compared to
slides.  If your exposure is spot-on with slides you have a much better
chance of getting what you saw color-wise than if you took print film and
let soem clown and/or machine print it.
