Subject of photo
Composition & Perspective
Use of camera, exposure & speed
Color & Lighting
Depth of field
Kids are always a good subject
The image is too static and a lower angle would be better. There is a distracting protrusion coming out of the ear on the right.
I do not see the sharpness in the eyes
It looks like a snapshot with no camera knowlwdge or manipulation.
Color isn't bad but the lighting is too flat
The background should be softer and the subject should be sharper to bring more attention to the subject.
As I stated this is no more than a snapshot
How to improve your photo
Lower your camera angle
If you want a horizontal composition, place your subject off center and position them to be looking into the image and not away
Look for some directioonal lighting.
