A very nice shot but about a stop under-exposed. When you're shooting, watch the histogram. For most normal shots, the graph should reach (or, at least, come close to) both sides of the scale, indicating that the photo contains something close to pure blacks and pure whites. Here, the histogram stops well short of the right, indicating a lack of bright tones. Positive exposure compensation moves the histogram to the right (lightens); negative moves it to the left (darkens). Avoid going so far that the histogram 'piles up' on the right-hand side, which indicates over-exposure, with areas that have blown out to white. Most cameras can be configured to flash any over-exposed areas when you view the images, which is useful for spotting small areas of blown highlights that might be hard to see in the histogram. You can also correct under-exposure like this in software with a levels adjustment, without too much loss of quality.
