I like this for the same reasons others dont. I like that it doesnt show you everything. I like it because it makes me ask questions. I like it because it shows emotion, which make it a strong image. I know he had someone in a clinch, but he also looks like he is in anguish. He looks like he is in a clinch because he is protecting himself and not in the offensive. The composition, lighting, DOF, and texture just add to the image's strenght but it is not important here.
Its a bit grainy and out of focus. When you look at the horizon, it appear that it is not leveled. But when you look at the vertical structures it is spot on. It may be an illusion, the horizon is not level in the first place. Maybe a mountain or something. Considering you took this with a compact, likely handheld, I think you did a fine job. The exposure is excellent. You can find details in both the highlights and shadows.
