The lighting is a bit harsh, but the great expression and obvious fun of this photo more than makes up for it.

Left or Right muffin eyed, that is the question. Funny take on the material. I might have cropped just a bit off the top to remove the white, but still and engaging portrait as is.

Are those Thomas' English muffins? There seems to be a "glow" or bleed of color coming off of his right (our left) side.

He wasn't peek a booing, He looks like he's showing the muffins to the photog.

Way too much going on in the background. I get that this shot would not make sense without something in the background, but I would rather see it or see less of it. My blurring it completely with a dof change, I get left wondering why he's wearing a hat and a rain coat.
