I would try cropping vertically as there seems like excess space at the right side.

Good timing. I love the body motions in the little fellow.

I have found that when taking a photo, composition works best if you sort of follow the rule of thirds, think of eye paths, and balance. This photo would have felt more balanced if you had placed him to the right simply because he is facing left. It is human nature to want to see more of what the subject is facing.

Other then that, I like it.

I agree, good timing, and cropping some off the right would make the picture even better. Thanks for sharing

Thanks for comments, I have to re-learn almost from scratch. I had no SLR camera in my hands for over 30 years and it seems to me it is even more difficult with a digital one.
I hope practice will help. Now I would like to ask how cropping the picture will affect later printing ? I have to mention that I'm using Linux os and view my picture in program called digiKam and have to do pictures in jpeg as in .pef it does not show exif data.
Anyone familiar with this situation ?

Take care
