Very nice! About how far were you when you shot this? Are you using a tripod? Have you considered using a strobe so that you can control the ambient lighting of the background? A wireless FL-36R on a light stand close to the subject would make for a nice setup. An underexposed (dark) background can isolate the subject and also really make some pictures pop.

Thanks! I was about 20 feet away shooting through double-pane glass. I just might give that FL36R trick a shot. Thanks for the tip.
