Person doesn't seem homeless (Harley boots/socks look pretty white), which from your title I'm assuming what you're refering too.

I think that this photo lacks impact. It needs something in the background to make me feel it more.

I am not a good photographer, I do not claim to be better than anyone, any criticism is meant to be constructive criticism......

this guy doesn't look homeless as much as someone taking a nap. the boots, the facial hair are well-kept. just an observation. now, that aside, this is a good capture. 6

Good image but I think the bit past the feet should have been cropped as it's just empty space.

Well; he has boots - dammit, he even has socks. He is almost clean. Care about what? Someone sleeping outside in daylight? I quite like the photograph, although I would think you could have paid a touch more attention to the background, especially the impact of that bush in this composition.
