I completely agree---you have hit the nail.
I printed a series of pictures of scenes in Venice at 8x10, framed and
matted in 11x14 frames. Nothing sold, and they were priced pretty low. I
blew them up to 30x40 "full bleed" and framed with no mat, (from 2 1/4 X
3/14 slides) and they were just right, and sold well. the large image size
seemed to be what the eye sees, and while I preferred the smaller prints,
they big prints on the wall seemed to be a window to the original scene.
