    Room Temp vs. 100F

    I developed this picture today in the darkroom. Portra 400 (1-hour dev.) on Fuji Crystal Archive II.

    Room temp-

    2 min dev

    1 min AA stop

    2 min Blix

    Over all, I was pretty happy with the color balance.

    However, I couldn't help feeling like there could be a tad more saturation and contrast.

    Any idea's on this?

    (I know there are some other posts, but nothing with FCA II.)

    You can't really change saturation and contrast in analog color prinitng. You can change to paper of higher or lower contrast if available, or you could change to film that is more (e.g., Ektar) or less (e.g., Portra 400) saturated. To my eye, your picture looks too cyan, maybe too yellow as well. remove about 10-15cc cyan and see what you get. It could be your processing as well. I've never used room temperature chemistry.
