No.  YOUR view of it yes, but not the inherent dynamic range of the film,

Yes, but we're talking about an image here, that is static.

I disagree, as it is simply an inherent property of the image/media, just
like a CD.  By "your" thought, you'd say that the image isn't on the film
unless you're viewing it.  If the image exists, it's inherent properties
exist, whether it's being viewed or not.
