Suavizaria un poco la luz, y buscaria un recorte para mejorar el encuadre. Asi esta muy bien pero creo que puede ganara mas en efecto visual. Un saludo

Very nice portrait of this little fellow - excellent composition and DOF. Maybe I would have made it square and cut off a bit more at the bottom.
Thanks, Ulla
