This photo is a good shot, but there are a few things you could do to move it out from the good category and into the extraordinary category. First off, there are too many elements in the shot that clutters it and diminishes a focal point. A tighter crop chopping out the folded table on the left & the table against the metal backdrop on the right would center/ground the focus on the man sitting at the two seater table. Next, the glare on the cafe window is distracting - a simple polorizer filter to illiminate glare would take care of that - flash would not be good because most times it will just bounce off the glass and create a bigger problem of glare. An alternate would be to have been there at a different time of the day as that the sun's position will greatly affect the glare/reflections cast or not cast - but that may have meant you would not have had captured this candid shot of this man reading the paper (assuming that this is not a posed shot). Lastly, show us what the headlines are - if this is a posed shot then their indeed might have been a frontpage headline that catches one by surprise and makes us sing "I read the news today, oh boy!" And even if it was a candid, showing the headline might just by luck relate to the emotion/title/or challenge you are trying to tackle.
