Nice shot but way too light.
It could be a much better shot if you play a little with the exposure, increasing contrast and color saturation...
I've tried it and the result is much better.
If you want I can mail it to you as an example...
I hope this help.

Ups, I don't know how to retrieve your email message, but here's the photo modified (I've used the Trial version of Lightzone, but, of course, Photoshop will do: use level and/or curves and saturation).

The image it's a little too contrasted now, but just to give you an idea of what you can get from your original...

Remember that usually images taken with a DSLR are less "finished" than the one taken with a compact camera...
