comment How to decide whether there is too much context or too little context in a photograph?
@Blrfl no, in this question I am not even trying to include the thing which the child was looking at. Thanks for putting words in my mouth though.

You said: "a stronger story in my opinion would have been to frame it so you can see what he is pointing at and where show is looking." --- Perhaps you can try answering this question: photo.stackexchange.com/questions/62148/…

comment How to compose a scene when including the actual context isn't simply practical?
@Caleb It is too tight. I can leave some room, but from which direction and how, such that the missing lizard doesn't become too obvious.

Found this part of your answer helpful: "I think the difference is the first image has a very small and intense focus point, so I don't care much about the items just a short distance away, but the second is a broader scene, so I'm taking in more details all over, now that missing toe at the edge is more important to me." -- Thanks.

Thanks for the response. Please add some details regarding the following point: Assuming I cannot move much from where I was in this scene then am I supposed to leave some space from any side or place the subject in a particular corner or leave space for headroom or is it in current state tightly framed??

-1 because you haven't answered the question. I'll repeat the question: Here, I am NOT asking about how to include the lizard, I already know that that is not practical. So, the question is how to "improve the composition" when the context isn't there. That means that am I supposed to leave some space from any side or place the subject in a particular corner do anything else or headroom? –

comment Does this sunrise photograph have a problem with white balance?
@mattdm I understand what you are saying but I don't collect photos of other people and now I don't even remember well enough what the original photo looked like. Sorry.

@mattdm absolutely not. I live in an industrial area and therefore don't get opportunity to shoot landscapes.

Not sure if you might know this but they have deleted their old content and replaced it by new forums. Even I don't have my old critiques and posts there anymore. @mattdm

@BartArondson I would have already done it if I had it. But after taking the photo I realized that I had forgotten to put the SD card in the camera. The photo wasn't "saved".
