Re: To the OP. Will you Please Post the Picture and ALSO a screen copy of the Histogram.

Apart from the foreground printing darker, are you noticing any other changes, especially color changes. Because, this image should print fine. I am not seeing anything out of gamut soft proofing with a standard lustre paper. The dynamic range is not huge and the input color gamut isn't either.

I really think you have a workflow problem. Try a standard image with the printer managing color. Or even try this image with the printer managing color. Using the software to manage color and the correct ICC profile would normally result in a somewhat better print, but not to the extent of 'prints too dark' and color problems you describe.
