The duotone is interesting but you usually see these chinese dragons in a lot of very vibrant colors. It looks like it has either camera shake blur or motion blur, but that could work to denote motion of the dragon as it moves toward the viewer. It fills the frame, which is a good thing.

I hope you tell, in your photographer's notes, how you got this shot. It's beautiful and I very much like your choice of blue color. 9

Really cool, entails a sense of power. Almost scary looking.
