This is an average subject for a photo but it is done very well. See below.
With the exception of three issues this is exceptionally well composed. Next time watch out for the tangents near the seam of the jeans and the subjects fingertips. I am being very, very picky here. Also next time be aware of how the fingers of the far hand are placed. Try to show more fingers too so you have the option of the two. Lastly the end of the shirt is a bit of a distraction but perhaps this is a more personal bias than a real issue in this photo. This is a very strong photo. Congratulations!

Correct from my point of view.
As I said a very strong photo.
