I doubt it as the effect is very subtle. Are you in highlight weighted metering? Do you have negative exposure compensation dialed in? Are you in Auto ISO? Many factors could make an image too dark.

I'm in manual mode no auto ISO. Could what metering mode I'm in have that large of an effect?

Since you have auto ISO turned off and you're choosing your shutter speed and aperture yourself, I think you're under exposing the image.
