    My first model

    not bad for being through glass. your depth of feild is shallow. i like it. it isolated your subject. good use of DOF! your subject (squirrle) is centered in the frames. Im not to big on centered subjects. maybe portraits but thats one of the few exception IMO!!!.. others will argue. but...
