It does not appear dark on my monitor, but I note looking at a histogram
of the JPEG that there's essentially nothing above 230 in the 0-255
distribution of values, and that there's a big pileup along the 0 edge.
The median value is bang on 128, though.

So you can either argue that it's perfectly balanced or that it's
dark, depending on your preferences.

Given how it looks to me, I think you're in better case to argue for
perfectly balanced than dark; there's a lot of essentially lightless
space in an overall dim scene with some large white expanses.
