I like the concept.  The eyes on the paper behind the face reflected
in the glass is interesting.  I'd suggest next time try focusing on
the reflection in the glass and see how that makes the image look.  As
it is, the reflection is just too blurry and distracting.  It's hard
to tell what it is.  I'm not sure that the items on the left side add
anything to the image.  That which doesn't add, detracts.  I'd crop
away the left and bottom fourths.

Alternate 1

The color seems to be too yellow.  The stuff in the background to the
left of the glasses is distracting.

Alternate 2

The horizon isn't level.  I like the colors.  Maybe more ground, less
sky?  Putting the horizon near the exact middle doesn't usually lend
itself to dramatic images.  I'd also re-compose so the trees are more
to one side.
