I would reserve the term "negative space" for discussion of compositions with artistic interest. Your shot is a wedgie with all the action at the bottom. Sorry to be harsh.

Put differently, I see nothing in your shot that would put it in the category of the shots seen at these links. It is subjective, and I don't have any words to describe it. Other than shots with powerful negative space have a relationship of some sort between the positive space and the negative, whereas your shot, in my view, is just plain out of balance.
