One of your favourite shooting spots I guess?
Whilst achieving 1/3rds vertically the subject just sits too dead centre for me on this one. Your strong sense of silhouette capture works well here; maybe a little more drama in the sky though?
Keep them coming.

I like the shot - simple & serene, but to top section bothers me. Hope you don't mind, but I've taken the liberty of giving it a simple crop - do you think this looks better?

For me, there is a little bit too much plain sky with Colin's version and too much roof with the original, which detracts from the figure.
With both versions, I would consider altering the aspect ratio and removing part of the roof or sky which, I think, may work equally well with both images and would give a totally new impression to the viewer.
But it is all in the eye of the beholder and everybody sees an image differently. I can't quite work out if the man is reading a book or making himself a roll up.
