Hi Heather, you definitely succeeded in capturing the emotion, as his smile must have been hard for him to produce after a very long day for him. Some technical issues bring the image down, but you are on the right track and you have a good aeye for human portraits.

Subject placed well in the frame, but river unfortunately should not "decapitate" the subject and is also "running out of the frame".

How to improve your photo
1.
Always use a flash, preferrably off the camera, but at least fill the subject with the additional light at dusk
2.
Never let anything cut through you subject, and a golden rule is that water must be straight when horizontal as it will be perceived as running out of the frame.
3.
Let you subject fill the frame much more if the background is undesirable
