Why is this photo so hard to softproof?

no edits. I went to Red River's site and downloaded the ICC profile for your printer-paper combo and enabled it in the soft proofing menu in PSCS5, as the screenshot shows. I posted your original image under the soft proof scene shot for comparison.

I would guess René simply did the same thing, but for his printer-paper choice (i.e., no edits).

Yep. No edits made.

Sure you did not check "Preserve RGB Numbers" (which would be the same as assigning the profile)?

oh yeah, I'm sure. That really makes a mess when you do that.:)

Do you typically print without making changes to your softproof? I know that I've occasionally had pictures that didn't need some changes before printing, but not very many.
Thanks again René.

If I see a problem, I correct it as good as possible. So generally, each (serious) print gets an adjustment.
