Can someone critique my very first krausen?

I'm totally new at this, and just put brewed my first batch of an Irish Red Ale a few nights ago (Wednesday). It made it to the primary at around 9:00 that night, so it hasn't quite been 48 hours yet. I've seen no airlock activity yet. I wouldn't normally be concerned so quickly, but I had an infection issue where I dropped one of the bottles of spring water into the fermenter as I was adding water before the wort. Yes, I am a butterfingered idiot.

Does this look good to you guys? I'm trying to train my eye to know what to look for in future brews

Here's an update. What do you guys think? I was planning on racking to secondary, but the more I read (along with how clear it looks in there) I think I'm going to leave it in the primary till bottling time...
