One final word: Printing (and how that turned out)
In reply to Docno, Apr 28, 2013

I printed the two images out (only 4x6 because I was only curious about colour rendition). Using a decent but somewhat dated Canon Pixma MP628 printer and Photo Paper Pro II paper (the second best glossy paper in the Canon consumer range I believe).

Interestingly, the second (more saturated) image looked more clearly the better one in this instance, and the colours on paper didn't look as over-the-top as on screen.The once hyper-vivid skin tones were more subdued as were the saturated greens in the background. All in all, the more vivid version, when printed, looked much better than on screen and much better than the printed naturalistic version. At least to my eyes....

[Note: I'd converted the the images originally for the sRGB colour-space, so perhaps the print outcome would have been different if in aRGB. And yes, all of this still highly subjective]

Thanks again, everyone, for an interesting discussion...
