Larry: Good capture of a fine subject and I like your DOF management. My concerns are with the BG, especially the partial leaf on the left edge and the light beige OOF branch on the right. I think I would try to make them go away completely or darken them. >=))>

Agree with Bill about the brown branch being distracting. Would take some work, but be worth the effort.
