Thank you for the test. I can see that they are different but how would this translate to a final print? I would enjoy making a print with both profiles and looking at them side by side. I might give this a test too but can you help me understand the difference. Would it result in a final print that has greater saturation or some other difference? I don't know how to interpret the difference. Thanks because this is above my pay grade.

Thank you for the constructive comment and the kind words!
The web on the photos is the part that 20 Hours / 12 Hours test has a larger gamut.
The color on the photos is the part the 10 minutes test has a larger gamut.
The first photo is the highlights.
The second photo is the shadows.

They look to me exactly the same in prints.
Usually having a larger gamut is better.
The smaller dry time gave an overall larger gamut but the difference is really small.

On the other hand a longer dry time provided more color gamut on the PT-101 paper.
It's my first part of the test. My previous post.
