Why are my images dark?

Greetings,

I am relatively new to digital from film. I am using a Nikon D750 and shooting in Aperture priority with JPEG out of the camera. I am finding my images appear fine on my camera screen, but when I upload to my Mac they are dark. I do some light processing in I-Photos and the brightness and color pop. Below is an image as it was taken, and the second after processing. My question, is this to be expected and the processing is enhancing the image as it should, or is my exposure not correct and the original image too dark, and if so should I be able to tell at the time of shooting? Thank you for any advice.
