Nice comment above, this is a good candid of a street busker. Immediately one thing comes to mind and that is the composition. As the guy is occupying a cetral location I do feel tht it would be better to allow more space to the LHS ie ahead of him, it provides a better balance allowing space to suit body language. If you don't, then you do need to lose most of the wall behind him.

I have uploaded a mod where I have done both, but as I have allowed space to the LHS I have not altogether removed thew all, just less of it than if the canvas was not added.

If your camera will allow it, get off maximum aperture and try some other exposure combinations rather than automatic.

A decent street candid of some interest and amusing. Difficult, I know, but a more 3/4 on angle would show a bit more of his face.

Good image with the additional interest of three feet!
Peru always looks an interesting place.
I've done a mod where I've cropped a little to bring his face into a more prominent area of the frame. Also increased contrast and sharpened a little.
