Nice pic. I'd try a horizontal crop to isolate the subject. The out of focus background, esp. in the lower part doesn't do anything for me. I might also try a little dodging of the subject to make it pop more.
Canon 5D3 and 7D, Nauticam and Subal, an assortment of strobes and too many damn lenses!

I'm curious if this is the format you shot it in or is it a crop of a horizontal? Can you tell us a little more about the camera, lens, etc.?

Steve ,this is a crop of a horizontal shot. The set up I used was a 60mm macro on a nikon d90 and a pair of ys27dx strobes.

I've cropped your image as it stands, and taken the red out of the darker areas to accentuate the colour contrast. What do you think?
