    Nice, warm colors. It is never easy to make a compelling image when the subject is facing away from you, but the addition of the forest cover in the direction of the animal helps here. I cannot see what focal length you shot this image at, but if the option existed, I would personally shoot this at a wider focal length to show more forest in the background and also leave a wee bit more space at the right of the frame.

    crop percentage calculation. I normally use this formula in an excel sheet so it becomes easy to calculate.

    (Original image -cropped image)/Original image}*100 = {(A*B-a*b)/(A*B)}*100
    For 5D II the original image size = 5760x3840
    Say you cropped the image to = 5000x3200
    Now the crop percentage is = {[(5760x3840)-(5000x3200)]/(5760x3840)} = 27.6%
    ie. you have cropped off 27.6% or close to one thirds of the image.

    I agree with Bhargava that may be a wider shot would have been of interest as now our eye immediately focuses on one tree trunk in the middle of the frame.

    Also, if possible moving more to your left ie. shifting the jeep to the left would have been better. However since these forests allow too many vehicles in a small area, it becomes difficult to have a good experience and compose as per wish.
