see mod.
it's a nice capture. only composition-wise (or angle-wise) it doesn't really deliver as much as it could. I wished there would be more of the windshield to be seen. allthough the windshield may take away some of the detail of what/who is behind it, it tends to add a lot of mood to a photo. here I think if you had taken the photo just a split second earlier or/and from a slightly sharper angle, you might have captured more of the windshield, with cappy clown better visible behind it, and with the clown you now (seemed to) mainly focused on still being the main focal point of the photo, be it less central in the picture. Now the windshield creeps into the picture, but only enough to make yearn for more.
Somehow up and down doesn't feel quite right either. a bit too much space on top, and not quite enough at the bottom. I didn't alter that part in the mod though. Mod 2 shows mod 1, but with (much) less saturation.
your photo seems to suffer from some overall noise. It doesn't bother too much, but at the same time it's a bit of a shame, as it seems like it could have been easily avoided, had you not taken this at (an unnecessary and limiting) f/11. Had you used an aperture of say f/6.3, or even a lower number, you also could have avoided having to use iso 1600. resulting in less noise, and more dof (more pleasing anyway)

Interesting well seen image. I would have cropped a bit tighter still and the noise and slight flatness is due to ISO`1600. Not sure why you needed that - ISO400 would have been fast enough, dropping you to f5.6, which would also have given enough depth for this image.
