Default Bad Contrast

I'm not sure what to correct for bad contrast. I've tried to research it and am not finding much help. Is there toom much uniformity of light across the shot? Should I darken the shadows more?

I think an increase in contrast will help.

adjusted levels-got it in. My eyes are trained yet to "see it," but once I thought about using levels, at least I know how to fix the problem!
