welcome to the forums...this is a nice shot with lovely details.....looks maybe just a tad dark to me tho..... (a little levels adjustment in photoshop would sort that right out)

I had a play around in photoshop,,, and there is a lot of detail in the image that can be pulled out of it with a little levels adjustment....
(especially in the feet)
If you don't allow edits let me know and I'll delete this.....
if you want to know the technique I used drop me a PM.
