I printed some landscape images to the 3880 (brand new to me). The darker areas don't hold the detail. Does my monitor have greater DR than the printer. I have color management under control, the colors are spot on. Just to be sure it isn't the light in the area where my display lives, I adjusted the contrast with the auto curve. That should be best fit for DR. The histogram shows that it's all within range. No gamet warnings either. I'll post example.

In this shot I can see the individual blades of dark green grass in bottom left. When I print the detail is almost gone and it is so dark, you can't tell it's green. Using Epson 3880 supplied profiles and proof set. Printed both to Prem Luster and Prem Matte. Same result.

I guess first question is can you see the detail in bottom left? If yes, then what's wrong?
