I think image looks fine. Color is good and realistic. House in background stands out.

? i'm sorry but i think its waaaay to dark still. is you monitor brightness too high? :)

anyway, try dodging up the trees a bit. the water and shy are probably fine, the trees are making it seem darker than it is.

It's interesting. When I look at the photo at home, the brightness is fine for me. But another monitor in my office give me an underexposed picture. Is there some standard to calibrate the monitor?

You need to calibrate your monitor :P Pick up a Spyder calibrator and never look back :)

Most people have their monitors too bright. Find a calibrating image they has a gradient bar the goes from white to black. You ought to be able to see each otherwise its too bright or dark.

Jack and Mike, thank you. I'll start from the gradient bar

It looks good to me. I wouldn't brighten the sky at all ; but maybe the trees just a bit.
