DR of the scene - range of brightness, as I've explained.

vs reflected light

What you have to realise that in print, the darkest is pure black and the brightest is pure white, and there can be infinite levels of colour in between depending on the quality of the print, hence what I said about DR of the display format - it is about the precision of brightness. It is impossible and unnecessary to reproduce the same range of brightness from the scene onto display (be it print or LCD).
