Default Too dark?

I don't understand this one. Maybe barely underexposed , though seems fine to me, but too dark?

Maybe it's really a freshly-painted-black-engine problem. Lower sun would have helped.

Something like this, perhaps?

What miningcamper said. The original shot is a wall of black.

I would think a photo of the man working on the headlight(is that what he is doing) and the family featured at more 3/4 angle might have been better.

He is not, he is there with his family. The sun angle was not favourable to a 3/4 angle when I was there and I have 3/4 angle shots of it already on rp - wanted to try a broadside shot.

The consensus seems to be that it is way too dark.

A brightened version is now on my Flickr page, I'll try that again at some point.

Unlevel, then too dark, then bad cropping - I'm done with this one.
