I like the light and treatment.
Pleasant to look !

If to search ...
maybe it would be good to get out the door and stuff on the right edge. A bit of crop. For balancing it will need a tiny crop from left too then. Maybe it will give even more clear and peaceful image.

But I like it this way too.

My own instant reaction (which I often trust more than a detailed analysis and dither) is that the angle of the roofs on the centre/left are sliding out of the frame and taking my eye with it. the strong diagonal at the bottom begins to restore my attention and the figure is great. I agree with Aiki that maybe the door on the right can go but I don't think you can lose any more on the left.

Lovely mono treatment.

I'm not so keen on the white sky, but the tones in the houses is great, and I really like the walking man and the bench. A very evocative photo.

As far as cropping is concerned, the submitted photograph is exactly as taken (no cropping).

I quite like the house on the extrem RH side as it continues the theme of the houses stepping down the hill.

If you try to crop it out, you either end up with an odd bit of porch and eaves or you start to lose the end of the bench.

The sky is a bit boring, so perhaps I need to clone in a few clouds and maybe remove the TV aerial

I think the picture is fine as it is, I don't mind the partial door on the extreme right edge of the frame. Aiki's crop looks OK but it leaves the bench, which is essential to the picture, too close to the edge. The crop can't get rid of all the canopy above the door without clipping the bench. Don't crop the aerial, its part of the contemporary scene - that is unless you are trying to create a period piece. I like the textures on the wall and the slight tint. And the figure is so important.
