Indigo renders dark

Every time I use Indigo my renders turn out way too dark and I end up having to brighten them considerably in post-pro. I’ve seen many Indigo renders done by others with the same lighting setup (a single sun lamp) but they seem much brighter and more natural to me. Am I doing something wrong? For an example of what I mean, check out —>this<— render.

just remember to save as EXR files so that you don’t lose color precision. Brighten up a 24bit image is a bad idea because you could potentially cause heavy banding.
