The Histogram doesn’t tell much (and its difficult to see if there is a spike on one end or not, the really useful part of a Histogram).

I have reloaded an enlarged histogram to make it easier to see.

The left side of the Histogram (shown in Luminosity) indicates clipping of shadows. That’s about the only thing I can say based on the Histogram alone.
