Hi Ashok,
You acheived a fine closeup POV/pose.
The composition is pleasing as well as color and light.
The downside is detail is missing. It looks as if you put this through Neat Image or other noise reduction processing and too much detail was washed away. Is that what happened? Please correct me if I'm wrong. There are other reasons detail can be missing. Good note.
TFS, Richard
