Interesting, but you are over exposed by about half to a full stop. The detail is going in places. Better to under expose a touch to deal with the highlights, then bring the shadows back with the dodge tool.

A wonderfully interesting pre-narrative accompanied by an interesting image. As Paul so kindly said your image is over exposed, another way to correct such happening is simply to bracket your exposures. Follow the link and you will soon be on the way to achieving correct exposures everytime.

A little over-exposed, but that should be easily recoverable in a Raw file. I like the way you have him looking out over the water, with the ripples nicely frozen - but I'd like to see more water, particularly bottom and right, for him to look over. We need to be able to follow his eye-line.
I am assuming it's a he-dragon by the way...
