I think this is a very strong image. One that makes me want to stop and take a long look. I especially like the definition and variation in the skin color. And the overall tone seems right at home with the background you made.
If I were asked to look at the picture for possible changes, the following are the only two I could come up with.
1. The smudge to the right of the collar might be improved with a little transition grain, sort of like the area up and left of the button.
2. The reflection in the edge of the glasses (left side of picture) reduced, removed, or made a smoke color.
The thing is, my suggestions might make it worse. I only mention them because I would probably test those changes to see if they helped.
