Critiques are welcomed!

I found the colors flat and as such seemed to get in the way.

The out of focus area in the lower left and the white pants in the lower right fight for attention with the central subject.

This is how I would have treated (mis-treated?) your file.

Your subject does have an interesting expression that I felt should be the featured element.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, Tom. I can see all your points and I appreciate the (mis) treatment of my file. Those changes work so much better. The OOF are in the lower left was from a sticker on the car window. I'm doing a lot of shooting from the car these days as I just had a complete hip replacment done on Christmas eve, and have to rely on my wife to cart me around for awhile.

Thanks so much.
