A little dark for my taste... otherwise, I really like the composition.

Wonderful bokeh in the BG. Would have preferred a little more fill light for his left side (you may have already pushed this as far as possible in post processing.) Nice capture.

Natural lighting isn't always our friend is it? Very decent shot though, at least the focus is great and exposure is well done.
