I feel that if this image was cropped from elbow/waist up then will look better. ;)

My thoughts
I think the reason why the pict wasn't cropped was due to the fact that rapier wanted to intensify the effect of the subject (being much lower than the camera height) looking up, which meant that floor was part of his composition. Try cropping just the 2nd tone of the floor instead.

Just wondering if removing the reflection in his eyes might help a little more?

Naw, I'm not against his choice of composition, it's just that that area I mentioned could be darkened, so that it isn't so distracting. It's like a lighter shade sticking out amidst a mostly dark BG..
