LIFE magazine once had the philosophy if it's a good picture make it big.
If it's a bad picture make it bigger. That sound's about the same. But what
you say is true.

The problem is, it's not so easy. It is harder to make great color photos,
but there's nothing wrong with that. Photography isn't easy no matter how
you slice it. It's just easier to make mediocre color images, because
they're harder to print.
