The posture is good, but the person is lost in the frame. If you have enough pixels, try a radical crop.

I have to disagree on this one.

This image works for me precisely because he is so small. Otherwise, it's just a person pushing a stroller :-)

The subject in the frame is too small to be of any importance. A little cropping it would make the subject more significant.

I hate to sound like a person that doesn't take criticism, but you are looking at a dinky JPG. This is an XPan neg, try imagine seeing it at 24x60 inches. That's how big I print it.

But I can of course crop it too:

I still like the original better though. It shows the struggle better, IMHO, but then again, I see it at 1920 pixels on my screen and 24x60" printed.

BTW, have you folks seen the book "On the Beach" by Richard Misbach? It's about 2 feet by 2 feet, and the human figure is about one inch or smaller in each photo. That's sort of my inspiration there too.
