I haven't been able to leave many comments, but this is the perfect scene for the challenge. I feel you need to have been a lot closer and also used a higher angle to be more in the style of Mary Ellen Mark (but I am no expert). Not that I should say anything about it, but higher contrast may also have helped.

These guys look like someone Mark would take a photo of, yet for me it is lacking the connection between the subject and the photographer that she nailed in her images. Still, I'm know that I would not be comfortable walking up to these guys and ask to take their photo, so I should not "punish" you for not putting a lens up in their face either :) I do think the image is a bit overexposed in some areas though. Oh, I just noticed the tail! Fantastic!
