    The wet print will not exhibit the finer tonalities in the highlights. A dry print viewed in the light it is to be seen in will reveal much more than viewing a wet print in the darkroom with any light source.

    I couldn't agree with you more. Having cut my teeth slugging a 4x5 during my college photography and all through high school till dinner time I was surprised to see that I could still judge a wet print within reason to it's final dry state after not being in a darkroom for some time. I realized again through this discussion I needed one more consistent process to finish my images. The same 'light bulb', tongue in cheek of course.
