This is precisely the cliche that you have transcended with this photo. Your processing and putting the camera on the ground with the man have gone a long way towards that.

Interesting choice of perspective for this - your leading line does it's job well.

i just don't think this works, I have been looking at this for a few minutes and as a street photography for me its just not right.

There is too much empty space in the lower 3rd, the subject has been cropped from the right, missing the remainder of the coat and this also seems a little blown out.

The overall feeling i get is that you were uncomfortable taking this shot, this due to the angle the shot was taken.

For me this falls into "homeless people = street photography" Keep trying and explore outside of this myth.
Marking down one point.

very good composition, more like a painting than a classic street photo, maybe lacking context. At first you want to look away, then see the art but not the compassion.

That's a sad photography. I do like the pov you've chosen. Poor fellow.
