I found it interesting how he managed to get that super shallow DOF on relatively wide two shots. I'm guessing that was a result of putting the background out of focus during the DI.
Aslan was well done but I found that he looked soft on CU's. That could have also been a result of the DI but when shooting the animatronic Aslan it would be difficult to keep the nose and eyes both in focus without using a wide angle lens (which can look odd in CU's) and/or a ton of light.
I was also a little dissapointed when I saw the first CGI shot of the White Witch's reindeer. It was almost like they didn't care very much about making anybody but the main characters look real.
As a film and a story, I think this was one of the best book adaptations I've ever seen. The filmmakers translated this story onto screen much better than either previous versions.
