It is lovely, got a few really bright overexposed areas though. Use the same principal you learned with the sunset. If the camera can lock the exposure, point the middle of the screen at the brightest part of the image, or in this image, the bright leaves to the right, lock the exposure, and then recompose the image, and take it.

The overall picture will be dark, but thats easy to fix in photoshop, and you will have some detail in the bright areas. You can do it.....

edit:- just did a quick check. Your best bet is to point the centre point through the viewfind at the bright section of the scene, press the shutter button half way down, recompose the shot, dont let the button go. When your happy with the composition, press the button the rest of the way down. This will lock the focus point and the exposure at the bright section. I will need to look at the camera to set it up differently for you, or see if there is an easier way.
