I find the comparison between the two graphs relatively meaningless without further specification.
One represents a relatively "thin" negative, the other a relatively "thick" or dense one. Which one
works bests depends how you are printing. We don't even know whether you are talking about a
standard neg or a stained one, of whether you are aiming for a high-key print or a contrasty one.
I always preferred aiming for Grade 3 paper; but that's even gone out the window now that VC papers have gotten so good. Besides, different brands of papers differ in contrast and can be affected
by dev variables and toning. Like I said, it's all relative, unless you choose to make a religion out of
the Zone System like Minor White did.
