Probably some personal taste applies here too, but

  1. Would be better to have things more bright in order to have some area which are at the bright end of the range?
  2. Actually the border up right of the flower is white so probably rising brightnes or exposition would give some overexposed areas?

I believe for this to be on topic - you would need to have an image that turned out in a way that you did not expect, or where you want to achieve a specific result, then ask about that. It seems as though here you are eliciting our comments on if this image is too dark - which would be opinion based for the most part. Do you need help making it lighter? We could help with that. –  dpollitt Mar 13 '12 at 17:21
I like the image and think its not too dark at all, I also agree with @dpollitt that this is not a question that can be answered here. –  Nir Mar 13 '12 at 19:58
My point was that the image is for most of it not so bright, except some little areas. I know it may be subjective, but on the other hand an image lacking contrast is generally regarded as dull. –  Paolo Mar 14 '12 at 9:18

The highlights on the flower are very close to pure white - I measure RGB(252, 252, 252), so on that basis, no.

As dpollitt says, anything else is subjective.
