It is to be expected (in general, independent of a particular target
used to create the profile) that a colorimetric reproduction of a
captured real-world scene on a monitor usually _does_ appear flat.
Unfortunately even an exact reproduction of the XYZ colors does not
imply that the _appearance_ of these colors would be identical as well,
if the  viewing conditions for the original and the reproduction are
different. And the viewing conditions are usually pretty different for
the real-world scene being captured, and e.g. for a monitor in a dim
environment. If you rather want to reproduce the _appearance_ of the
original scene and not its colorimetry, then you additionally need to
apply a color appearance model (e.g. CIECAM02).
