I had my photograph printed at two places...one expensive print on high quality paper (I had a free coupon that I won at a seminar I went to)...and one "cheap" print done by Costco. I showed both prints to several people...and some employees at a framing shop...and they all chose the "cheap" print as their favourite. So...expensive is not always your best choice.
I signed my photo on the front, which is apparently a no-no for photographs. Artists sign on the front. Photographers sign either on the white border (to be covered up by the matte) or they sign on the back of the print. Signing on the matte is a "no", as projects can get re-matted and therefore the signature is lost. Signing on the actual print is considered distracting and de-values the photo. I don't understand that...why should a photographer sign on the back when other artists sign their work on the front?
To each his (or her) own, and I think I will continue to sign on the front.

This photograph has such a different feeling than the black and white winter photo!
