This certainly has a feel of a captured candid moment of a child upset & crying (maybe even having a tantrum judging by the crossed arms and the feet in the act of stomping). You have some nice B&W tones throughout. I think the two main things that would have made the composition even stronger is angle of the shot and getting closer to the subject. The angle is from a standing position such that the sand dominates the backdrop like a wall - it might have been better to show the emotion from the child's stance which is lower to the ground and that would also mayhap shown a bit more of the beach/sky (blue happy sky in contrast with the upset/sad emotion). Getting a lower angle would bring the audience 'sitting' at the same level to your main subject thus letting us identify with the boy more. A closer crop would bring us up close and personal with your main subject: strengthening our connection and reaction to the mood and feel of the photo. (not voting)
