Pekka, Great skin coloring and as usual, sharp as a tack. Can almost count the strands of hair. I can really see where the spot metering begins and ends. Nice work, you do the camera justice.

It's a good shot, good idea to capture the subject from this perspective. You've also made the best given the limitations of the situation and of the equipment. To be perfect the chair (?) at the bottom left should not be in the picture and the background should be more blurred. But again, this is probably the best which could be achieved considering the shooting position, max lens aperture and geometry of the room.
