Different crop, some lens blur, and added some warming cast (masked).
The geometry is a tough gig to minimize or eradicate because it has so much contrast within itself. Since color casts steal clarity ... which I typically strive to remove for the reason, I instead added some cast to try and reduce the clarity ... masking the boy's face somewhat to a lesser degree to try and create a bit more differential to pull you toward him.
Still, plenty of detractors / business competing in the scene.
This version really emphasis the eye. I had the feeling that the focus might have been the hair but more likely it was just fairly deep dof.
I don't care for the technique on landscapes, but it is effective here. I have used to extensively for birds and flowers.
