Looks good when I'm away from monitor.
Is it cropped aggresively?... or some photos really changes too much when uploaded, some loses color tones, some sharpness. Is there any difference between this and the original one in your computer?

I think the sidelighting makes for awesome texture on the wings.... I would try to make that texture the focus of shot. For me, I'm not crazy about the point of interest being directly in the center of the composition... otherwise I think it's a very nice capture.

I am with adnan here, something about the image quality is a bit disturbing, if you look closely there are some halos just around the wings and feet, looks like it might be a bit oversharpened.

I also agree with bnack, dead center just isnt that interesting, read up on the rule of thirds perhaps.

To me it looks overly sharpened by the camera or in pp. I speculate that it wasn't too sharp to begin with and the excessive artificial sharpening does not help. Otherwise it's a good short, hard to achieve!
