My only real gripe is that the skin tones look a bit oversaturated

Any criticism is appreciated.
Way to red. Ineffective use of light. Poor composition.

The DOF and focus are good.

To bad too, because he has an interesting face that could have been used to make a great image. The creases on either side of his nose are great leading lines pointing right to his eyes, which in this photo are way to dark to be seen well because no fill light was used.

I reduced the Vibrance and did some dodging.

Thanks for the help KmH. I thought it was oversaturated at first too but I just wanted to hear it from someone else. I never thought of using fill flash though. I should be getting an SB80dx pretty soon, so hopefully I'll be able to put that to good use in the future. Thanks again.
