It would be interesting to do...and see what the actual cause is.  As I'm

without eliminating some of the other variables...like light source
particularly, and development/exposure issues (to some degree)...

Yeah, but I think it's all relative, and doesn't necessarily get "enhanced"
as that explanation might make you believe...
