    Tone - The tone seems to be rather bland, to be honest. I would add more contrast to the photo, because everything seems really flat.
    Composition - It's pretty good! Maybe crop a little of the bottom half off so the rule of thirds apply.
    Tough feeling - I don't really see 'tough' in this photo, more like tiredness. I know you tried to create it with a sephia tone, but I would knock down the saturation and maybe try a blueish tone? Off course it's up to you.

    Tone is fine for me
    composition is abit off because u left too much foreground and it seems the camera focus was on the foreground instead of the man.
    Great idea though!

    Seems that the old man is slight in the OOF zone, as the focus point seems to be the grass patch in front or the second tile.
    I think it would be better if the old man is sharply focus.
    Just me 2 cents=)

    On first look, I think I get what you mean by tough based on just the title and picture (I skipped the text since pictures should speak for themselves) but on closer look, it's as the old man is thinking. Hmm... the can is the one that is being tough - hard to flatten it.
