Based on some comments on thegiant, I think that's normal for the print.

My AP looks just like that with the sheen ending just below the monk's face. Guessing they're all like that.

Weird. I'm gonna quit bitching then if they're all alike. If the peeps are happy with it then I'll try to ignore it.

Not like it, just tolerate it.

I wanted to know if my complaints were warranted if only 1 out of 450 was just drymounted. It looks like a printing error but if it turns out they're all like this (which sounds more and more possible) then I'll shut up about it and not muddy the waters with negativity. I temporarily put the print in a cheap 18x24 frame just to see how it would look, and it's not the end of the world for me. I deleted my earlier strong comments on the issue.

That being said, I think I can see what they were going for with that effect. In the bottom of the robe there's red dots in the black that eventually fade as you go up. They probably wanted the face area to be true black without the whatever-its called that's faded up to that point, so stopped it in a very straight line across the image. It just a distraction for me now that that's the first thing I noticed when I pulled it from the tube. My eye just goes straight there, it's one of those oh well things. I like all or nothing. Oh well.
