Dark subject with bright background. Most cameras have problems in this case. Your picture is no exception. It's too dark (under exposed). You can fix this by manually compensating with +EV. Or if your camera is capable, spot meter a neutral gray area on the subject. Failing that, you can use an external handheld metering device to read ambient light falling on the subject.
