Hi David - I don't think dynamic range is a holy grail in and of itself.
However, within any medium of expression, control of the variables to  
achieve desired effects does the artist or craftsperson make.
Musicians practice scales and work on tonal quality. We, as  
photographers, also have a scale of values, tones, hues, saturations  
with which to communicate.
