Overall, I like it. I think you could work on the lighting/contrast some, though. Whatever you have set up there now, although it allows for a good exposure and is pretty even...is making the image seem very 2 dimensional and kinda flat...almost adull look to it.

i agree, this one looks flat to me.. mb a little bit more of a directional light and then a mono conversion would help you out some...

you know, i still would prefer a more directional light... this would also drop some shadow down on the backdrop and give it a more 3-dimensional feel.. as it is right now, its just way too flat and 2-dimensional.. maybe set it up so your main light is coming from the left hand side of the frame, i don't think i would even fill in the other side, and would take advantage of the shadows created.. a lighter backdrop might be helpful in this shot as well..
