Hello all,

Thanks for taking the time to read this post. I am not trying to start a conversation about film v. anything, so please don't hear me taking it there. I am curious to know though how traditional wet-printing handles color saturation. I'll often see an image online and like it in a general sense, but after closer inspection I notice that there are areas where detail is lost because of over-saturation. Now, I happen to like an appropriate amount of saturation, but not at the expense of textural detail.

I've never printed color using the traditional method, but I am setting up a darkroom and am considering making color a possibility. Here's the question:

Can traditional wet-prints deliver saturation without compromising textural detail?

I understand that some of this depends on your film and format of choice, so which combinations work well?

Thanks in advance for your kind replies!
