It's a bit over-exposed... but some work in post-production might bring it back.

Edit, I gave it a quick once over in Gimp. Using curves, I got a little of the over-exposure corrected. Then a slight boost to saturation and contrast. The problem is, once part of an image is totally blown out form over-exposure, the information is gone forever. Personally, I try to under-expose slightly and then lighten in post later if needed.
