Kevin, there's just a lot of dynamic range in there, so the oceans seem underexposed, but to expose them better you would end up possibly overexposing land. Especially some countries seem fine in terms of exposure. This would be a candidate for HDR I would think to get exposure right across the board.
My 2 amateur-hobbyist cents. There's a bunch pros here, I will be curious to see what they think.
I took this a while back and after talking with another member here, I have been trying to understand histogram and how it relates to what we see in the pictures we take. I played with exposure, highlights, shadows, light and dark. I only played with these things and a bit of a crop, nothing else...everything else is default settings.

What do you think? I have been told to monitor my histogram in camera, this shot most of the data was to the left side. Does that mean I am underexposing?
The oceans look like they are supposed to be black to me - so their exposure looks OK.
Yes, the oceans are in fact black. It is one of the reasons I used this to try to learn a bit more. Did I do OK, does it still look flat?
