I think the elements for a strong image are there but I also think you could improve it by shooting from a lower viewpoint. By standing and shooting down at the subject it ends up feeling a bit voyeuristic and grabbed.
If you went down to his level but still included him, the safe and his hat, I think it might be a more effective image. You could also tell the guy about the safe behind him and why you think it's an interesting image and see if he'd go along with it as a tighter shot. Then you could drop a decent contribution in his hat and you'd both be happy.
