This is one of the few times where I think the choices you made just don't work.
First, you chose black and white, and so for more than a few seconds, I mistakenly thought this was a winterscape and that the tree branches were weighed down with heavy wet snow.
Second, the main subject of the photo is supposedly the little boy feeding the birds. But the tree branches overpower so very much of the image that they shunt the little boy aside, and it's hard to see him against the extreme visual competition from the branches. Specifically, not only do the branches take up over half of the frame, but they have a vibrance to them that is more dynamic and attention-geting than the very static little boy.
Third, we see five human figures off to the right, and the little boy is supposed to be the main focus. But he is the least interesting of the five human figures, as well as the least defined. Perhaps if he was more in a sharp silhouette, or if maybe the adult standing right behind him didn't have those annoyingly white-ish socks and shoes and hat, then maybe the boy's fgure would be more accessible to the beholder of this photo.
I realize this was likely a totally unstaged photo, and you just happened to be in the right place at the right time. But the elements don't work, especially for black and white.
Maybe if yiou tweak thing up a bit with photo manipulation --make the boy more defined, give the adult behind him black pants and black socks and even a black hat to give the adult more definition --maybe then we will gravitate to the boy a little more. But even then, the tree branches are STILL too overpoweringly vibrant and attention-getting.
