I really like this shot. I love the focus and clarity. We get some excellent detail in the tree, branches, and the kid. Good crisp lines.
The angle and framing/cropping you chose is excellent as well. A lot of the time having the subject right in the center of the photo is a bad thing, it doesn't work most of the time, but it works very well here. I like how you have put the attention on him, however, still have room for the branches.
The background works excellently. Nothing distracting there.
Lighting is wonderful as well. Nice contrast and tones. There are no dark shadows or distracting hot spots.
You know, there really isn't anything I would change in this photo. I would have given it a 10. Great shot, congrats.
