My friend was busy playing with my 18-55mm lens and I clicked this from behind.........

Raj, what a superb idea
I`ve uploaded a mod that I reckon works OK but its how you see the shot that`s important.
First I rotated the picture slightly clockwise, this straightens the horizon but more importantly makes the subject lean more forward as though he is really concentrating on a distant subject. I also cropped a little from the left side and bottom to place subjects head on a thirds intersection.
To achieve more definition in middle and background I applied a little levels adjustment and finally added local sharpening to his hair (to emphasize the slight catch light) and also dodging (local lightning/brightening) and sharpening to his clothes.
My idea is to lead the viewers eye straight to the subject and then follow his gaze to the horizon.
Just one other suggestion, it is a shame that tree appears to be growing out of the subject`s head. If possible take a step to the side so that the tree is off to one side.
Hope this helps,
This is day one basic error. Unintentional head growth.
I appreciate it was a grab shot, but with a couple of steps you could have made it look like he was looking at the tree. The flare adds to the hazy evening feel in this case, and though you could add some contrast, its quite a nice lazy day shot. If only he was looking at something definite on the horizon....
Thanks Richard,Nick for your valuable comments
He wouldn't have been playing with my lens like that! The main problem here is the heavy flare resulting in the over all orange cast and apparent over exposure. I would get in much closer, then also change the shooting angle to exclude the sun.
