Hi

I think the composition is sturdy enough and holds up to the eye's inspection, and I like it that you are exploring a more off beat image approach with an open aperture and a nicely placed main focal point. But being an image of broad form and colour, the lighting plays an even more important role in crafting an image that holds one's attention and that's the area I think where a more creative approach could have paid larger dividends. So overall not a bad image, but not one I would hang on a wall either.

Just my thoughts
And I wish you all the best
Matthew

Nice one. I like the high key look and the selective focus approach.
