I like this study... an off-guard moment in public. It is a bit hot on the hat and the beard and I used a little highlight/shadow correction to lower change the tonal range. It opens up the face a little and puts a little more texture into the hat and the beard.

I thought that there was a little too much space to the right because he was not looking that way or moving in that direction so I chose a crop that would focus on the face only, because in my view, the space was adding nothing to the composition other than competing highlights, albeit out of focus ones.

Nice image that was well captured. As you shot in RAW mode, I would consider looking at how much you can adjust the exposure and the shadows and highlights before you bring it into post capture imaged editing. If you had another go at the processing, you may well find a way to negate the very bright highlights.
