1. Picture is too small (but I clicked on your like to see the bigger pict)
2. You might actually want to go really close to capture the textures and weathering. this looks more like a normal merlion shot. Perhaps a close up on the scales might do better for what you are going for.
3. Maybe a slower shutter speed will smooth out the spouting water.
4. Good that you placed the merlion head using rule of thirds.

Overall a nice picture, though another type of shot may have better showed the weathering.

i am thinking of something less tight. why? so that you can see a bigger arc of the water, which would be more pleasing than something that just goes out straight. not sure if you are getting what i mean.

moving more to the right might give you a more pleasing "side" of the merlion. :)

another thing may be the lighting... you might want to try using fill-in flash to soften the shadows so that the merlion is more "white". just MHO
