It is often a good idea to include sufficient background to provide a subject with context.

In this case, however, I don't really get the proportions of the image.  Instead of so much "meaningless" building above and behind him, I would have preferred to see his feet.

Well, you cannot add feet that are not there, but you could crop away a considerable amount of emptiness above him.  While you are at it (cropping), also remove that sliver of person on the far left : it doesn't add anything, while the three complete background persons do (the woman and the man with child - there is a fourth person there, behind the player, but we see only one foot).

In essence : crop to enhance.  The tilt is fine for me.
