With such small animals, a lower POV, as close to the ground as you can get, tends to give the best results in photography, in my opinion. As this particular salamander is slow moving, getting the right angle to "shoot" it from shouldn't be a problem. Also, when doing this you will want a nice blurry background so it doesn't distract attention from your intended subject, so watch your DOF (play with different settings of focal length and diaphragm). Also, it's best to avoid anything in the picture that can spoil the atmosphere it's intended to create, like the cigarette in the upper left corner.
Best regards
