Good Photo

Hello Velja,
First, I like the subject, the processing and the mood of the photo, fine job!
What I would do differently (personal choice, not necessarily a critique) is place the man and bench off-center. As it is, it seems static. By moving the subject to the right (my preference), there's more space behind him, symbolizing a greater past and less future. Moving him to the left (since he's looking to the right) causes the viewer to wonder what's ahead, what he's seeing.
Just an idea, it's good the way it is.

He´s got an interesting expression but I think the background is too distracting and doesn´t add much. Perhaps try a tighter crop. Too much sharpening perhaps?

thank you for the attention and constructive opinion! I took into account the advice regarding the position of the object composition, In PPG I had changed!
As for the excessive sharpness!? I photographed "out of hand", and are viewing a large FL, it was necessary to use a tool from PS6!
regards Velja
