Wow, thanks for noting that !

i must then have posted the image after attempting to adjust the monitor to D50 and gamma to 1.8 to see if that provides better images than the default d65 and gamma 2.2 . This is not the photo I printed as of yet. This is an attempt to get a better image using curves to reprint.

thanks for picking up on that.

the original print was made using Canon's recommended settings for their pixma 100 for monitors.

i will post another image and histogram which is the one created using Canons recommendations for setting the monitor, which makes the white and brightness markedly different from default.

You don't use monitor profiles in the printing process, you use printer profiles. Is the an underlying issue?
