    What is the project you want to use it for?

    Issues I see with the composition:
    1- Its dead centre of the frame. Read up on the rule of thirds
    2- There is alot of empty space over its head. Ensure that you fill the frame with your subject
    3- I don't like the angle its shot at. You are too low.
    4- If possible, try and get the eye in focus. Getting eyes tack sharp is key in taking pictures of people and animals, and I assume it also applies to fake animals :)

    Of course.. why didn't I see that before??
    Thanks alot for the advise, I've used the rule of thirds technique and I made the eyes a little more striking :D
    I know was too low, but the model was pretty much directly above me
    My project is 'shape' so I can use just about anything :) This was just a particular image I was stuck on
    I guess I'll try harder to get a good angle next time?
