I would try printing the image and then determine if it is too dark. Would it lose all of the detail in the fur or tree bark?

I like it as is.

Perhaps I would desaturate the pinky spots on the tree trunk and there is a pale spot to the right of the dog's head. Nitpicking!

Am not nuts about the sepia coloring...try other renditions.
Nit-picking is necessary before making a print.

With this processing, I think its fine. I might be tempted to dodge/lighten that very dark area at the bottom left to match the tonality of the rest of the image. But again, overall I don't think its too dark.

I like the photo, but it looks over sharpened to me.
