Interesting. I like the differences in lighting and color in the two parts of the scene. The curves also contrast - the ones curving to the right in the right-middle of the frame and the man's back and the post on the other side. I might try cropping down the middle of the post on the left to accentuate its curvature and remove the light area upper left.
Thanks Lew. It was late in the evening, about 10 pm, there is a dark pathway between two buildings, where you normally never meet people that late. And there was this guy , dressed well, eating something and staring into the darkness. There is a street full of lights and hotels and restaurants behind his back, - the whole scene was a bit spooky and surreal. I could not resist taking my camera out. He did not even notice me...The thing that you removed was a lamp post. I like your version.
