    Cute picture, but maybe a tad on the dark side?

    This is very much of a 'Kodak moment' picture so kudos for being able to capture the emotion.

    Can try a portrait orientation instead to leave out much of the empty space. It doesn't really add to the composition.

    Try using bounced flash to add some texture to the boy's face as well as adding a catchlight in his eyes.

    a square crop would suit this image and composition, the empty space on the right does nothing while the line on the wall distracts.

    also the exposure could be psed for better tones

    nice moment, but lighting rather flat. at such a close distance you can consider using built-in flash if your camera has one.

    My personal opinion is that the black and white setup don't seem to go well with the child's smile. Maybe colour mode would bring out the happiness of the child more. My 2 cents.
