General
impression
I really like this image. As mentioned earlier, I personally would have left a bit more room on the vertical sides for future cropping, framing etc.
9/10
Subject
of photo
The subject is very clear and dominant.
9/10
Composition
& perspective
The placement of the subject is really well done. You have maximized the use of space however, subjectivley, I would have left a bit more room on the vertical sides of the framing for cropping, framing etc. (especially if you are planning to print this image and frame it. The matting needs to "bite" into the edges of the photo and the very close-crop of this image does not leave much room for that, without touching the edge of the main subject). The framing is awesome as are the leading lines. Great use of thirds... The angle of perspective is nice. This image lends itself to be shot straight on, like this. Contrast is excellent between all elements, especially the the way it is presented against the sky and the rocks.

Not sure of the ISO on this but it looks tack sharp at the resolution and size that I am viewing. Excellent use of lens and exposure.

This subject could present itself in a shallow depth of field as well as the great depth of field that you have done.

How to improve your photo
1.
Leave a little more space on the right and left side of the image to make it stand out more and to allow more room for cropping, framing etc.
2.
Try HDR on something like this.
3.
I think the shot is very good, as is. This is one of those scenarios that presents itself to other opportunities such as adding a colorful flower to offset the viewers attention or place a nude model in the scene etc.
