Why is this photo printing so dark?

I print using a calibrated 24" BenQ monitor, an Epson 3880 printer, and Lightroom 4.0. Almost all of my prints come out pretty close to what the monitor looks like, after taking into account backlit vs print, etc. For some reason this photo prints really dark. I have lightened it up considerably and it still prints way too dark. Just to be sure, I've reprinted some other photos which come out just fine. My current monitor calibration settings, via Color Color Eyes Display Pro software and X Rite MonacoOptix DTP94 hardware, are White Point 6000k, 85 cd/m2, Gamma L*, and Black Point at Min. Luminance. Any thoughts?
