Your main focus, if it is the human subject, is underexposed.

This may be due to your camera being tricked by the bright yellow Suzuki swift behind (I don't like this car model)

Technical wise that's one thing you can improve on. Read your manual to see how you can use spot meter and exposure lock for better exposure metering

There was no story being told in your photo. It's a snapshot. The masters of this genre that I observe have managed to capture the story and the expression of the subject vividly.

lighting is flat, background is distracting. i would opt for black and white for street portraits as colours are often distracting. a shallow DOF will help to reduce background clutter, and more directional lighting will help to give the subject more contrast and depth.

OK noted and will try to improve. Sure will read the manual and try reviews on portraits/poses shots.

The yellow car is right behind the subject. Extremely distracting
