Wonderful detail in the face but I am going to say it.A square crop from the bottom improves it no end.But hey its your picture not mine.

By moving the subject up in the frame makes him more dominant (forceful) when probably a very kind and gentle man. The poor state of the brickwork and timber also provides the viewer with a feeling of the suroundings. A face that has lived life and been superbly captured here.
