I use sRGB unless I have a special image with saturated colors. Then, if I am going to print it, I work in aRGB. It's just what I have found works for me.

It's not so much saturated colors, it's that you have more definition or color shades when you start in ProPhotoRGB and send it to the printer than when starting from sRGB.

You actually have courser graduations with a larger color space if the bit depth stays the same. If you are inside the color space, there are no special colors in proRGB that aren't in sRGB, except when you get "outside the box" with the colors. And that image is so hot, many parts of like those yellow trees are simply blown out.

Use the link on the bottom of this page, then print the file as-is (ProPhotoRGB), convert to sRGB and print again. Then compare: http://outbackprint.outbackphoto.com/printinginsights/pi048/essay.html

I downloaded and played with this. Most of the super saturated colors in this file (esp the color patches) are way outside the gamut of my printer too. I have no need or desire to deal with files like that. I know some people like that "velvia look", it's not my style.
